RAML to Markdown

NPM version js-standard-style

A simple RAML to Markdown documentation generator, written for Node.js. Check raml2html for a RAML to HTML generator.

RAML version support

raml2md 4 and higher only support RAML 1.0 files. Please stick with raml2md 3.x for RAML 0.8 support.

Install

npm i -g raml2md

Usage

As a command line script

raml2md example.raml > example.md
raml2md -i example.raml -o example.md
raml2md -t examples/custom-template-test/template.nunjucks -i examples/example.raml -o example.md

As a library

Using the default templates

var raml2md = require('raml2md');
var config = raml2md.getDefaultConfig();

// source can either be a filename, file contents (string) or parsed RAML object.
// Returns a promise.
raml2md.render(source, config).then(function(result) {
  // Save the result to a file or do something else with the result
}, function(error) {
  // Output error
});

Using your own Nunjucks templates

var raml2md = require('raml2md');
var config = raml2md.getDefaultConfig('my-custom-template.nunjucks', __dirname);
raml2md.render(source, config).then(...);

Custom pre-processing

var raml2md = require('raml2md');
var config = raml2md.getDefaultConfig();

config.processOutput = function(data) {
  // Do whatever you want here and return the modified data. 
  // The default implementation:
  return data.replace(/\n{3,}/g, '\n\n');
};

raml2md.render(source, config).then(...);

If you want to use a different template language, you're better off directly using raml2obj.

RAML version support

raml2md 4 and higher only support RAML 1.0 files. Please stick with raml2md 3.x for RAML 0.8 support.
