api-development-tools - :books: A collection of useful resources for building RESTful HTTP+JSON APIs

  •        19

This is a collection of useful resources for building RESTful HTTP+JSON APIs. There are a lot of good tools and entire ecosystems out there! It can be overwhelming not knowing what options are available, so you can use this as a reference starting point. Please write a brief one-sentence summary when adding a new resource.

NSwag - The Swagger/OpenAPI toolchain for .NET, Web API and TypeScript.

  •    CSharp

NSwag is a Swagger/OpenAPI 2.0 and 3.0 toolchain for .NET, .NET Core, Web API, ASP.NET Core, TypeScript (jQuery, AngularJS, Angular 2+, Aurelia, KnockoutJS, and more) and other platforms, written in C#. The Swagger specification uses JSON and JSON Schema to describe a RESTful web API. The NSwag project provides tools to generate Swagger specifications from existing ASP.NET Web API controllers and client code from these Swagger specifications. The project combines the functionality of Swashbuckle (Swagger generation) and AutoRest (client generation) in one toolchain. This way a lot of incompatibilites can be avoided and features which are not well described by the Swagger specification or JSON Schema are better supported (e.g. inheritance, enum and reference handling). The NSwag project heavily uses NJsonSchema for .NET for JSON Schema handling and C#/TypeScript class/interface generation.

api-platform - REST and GraphQL framework to build modern API-driven projects (server-side and client-side)

  •    Javascript

The official project documentation is available on the API Platform website. API Platform embraces open web standards (Swagger, JSON-LD, GraphQL, Hydra, HAL, JWT, OAuth, HTTP...) and the Linked Data movement. Your API will automatically expose structured data in Schema.org/JSON-LD. It means that your API Platform application is usable out of the box with technologies of the semantic web.

swagger2markup - A Swagger to AsciiDoc or Markdown converter to simplify the generation of an up-to-date RESTful API documentation by combining documentation that’s been hand-written with auto-generated API documentation

  •    Java

The primary goal of this project is to simplify the generation of an up-to-date RESTful API documentation by combining documentation that’s been hand-written with auto-generated API documentation produced by Swagger. The result is intended to be an up-to-date, easy-to-read, on- and offline user guide, comparable to GitHub’s API documentation. The output of Swagger2Markup can be used as an alternative to swagger-ui and can be served as static content. NOTE: The Swagger Specification has been donated to to the Open API Initiative (OAI) and has been renamed to the OpenAPI Specification. Swagger2Markup converts a Swagger JSON or YAML file into several AsciiDoc or GitHub Flavored Markdown documents which can be combined with hand-written documentation. The Swagger source file can be located locally or remotely via HTTP. Swagger2Markup supports the Swagger 1.2 and 2.0 specification. Internally it uses the official swagger-parser and my markup-document-builder.

apispec - A pluggable API specification generator

  •    Python

A pluggable API specification generator. Currently supports the OpenAPI Specification (f.k.a. the Swagger specification). Documentation is available at http://apispec.readthedocs.io/ .

swagger - Swagger client generator

  •    Javascript

This is a utility for automatically generating API documentation from annotations in Go code. It generates the documentation as JSON, according to the Swagger Spec, and then displays it using Swagger UI.This tool was inspired by Beego, and follows the same annotation standards set by Beego. The main difference between this tool and Beego is that this generator doesn't depend on the Beego framework. You can use any framework to implement your API (or don't use a framework at all). You just add declarative comments to your API controllers, then run this generator and your documentation is ready! For an example of what such documentation looks like when presented via Swagger UI, see the Swagger pet store example.


Swashbuckle.AspNetCore - Swagger tools for documenting API's built on ASP.NET Core

  •    CSharp

Swagger tooling for API's built with ASP.NET Core. Generate beautiful API documentation, including a UI to explore and test operations, directly from your routes, controllers and models.In addition to its Swagger generator, Swashbuckle also provides an embedded version of the awesome swagger-ui that's powered by the generated Swagger JSON. This means you can complement your API with living documentation that's always in sync with the latest code. Best of all, it requires minimal coding and maintenance, allowing you to focus on building an awesome API.

flask-restplus - Fully featured framework for fast, easy and documented API development with Flask

  •    Python

Flask-RESTPlus is an extension for Flask that adds support for quickly building REST APIs. Flask-RESTPlus encourages best practices with minimal setup.

Swagger - The World's Most Popular API Framework

  •    Java

Swagger is a powerful open source framework backed by a large ecosystem of tools that helps you design, build, document, and consume your RESTful APIs. The goal of Swagger is to define a standard, language-agnostic interface to REST APIs which allows both humans and computers to discover and understand the capabilities of the service without access to source code, documentation, or through network traffic inspection.

iodocs - Interactive API documentation system

  •    Javascript

Copyright 2011-2014 Mashery, Inc. I/O Docs is a live interactive documentation system for RESTful web APIs. By defining APIs at the resource, method and parameter levels in a JSON schema, I/O Docs will generate a JavaScript client interface. API calls can be executed from this interface, which are then proxied through the I/O Docs server with payload data cleanly formatted (pretty-printed if JSON or XML). Basic HTML text tags are enabled in the JSON schema.

swagger-node - Swagger module for node.js

  •    Javascript

The swagger module provides tools for designing and building Swagger-compliant APIs entirely in Node.js. It integrates with popular Node.js servers, including Express, Hapi, Restify, and Sails, as well as any Connect-based middleware. With swagger, you can specify, build, and test your API from the very beginning, on your laptop. It allows you to change and iterate your design without rewriting the logic of your implementation. Remember, one great thing about this approach is that all of the Swagger validation logic is handled for you, and all of the routing logic is managed through the Swagger configuration. You don't have to code (or recode!) any of that stuff yourself.
