    It isn't where it needs to be. Notably, it cannot out-of-the-box handle open generic data types. There's also plenty of issues logged for this library. - Personally, that makes me think the approach is overly complicated and doesn't do its job as well as it should.

    That’s exactly what I meant. There’s about 0 maintenance required most of the time. Take a look at their official nuget GitHub page. This should work out of the box with ASP.NET core 3.0 and greater. For 5.0 onwards, the MVC template comes pre-configured with it.
  • Auto Generate Client From OpenAPI Specification (Swagger)

    When you run your web api app, you can access the swagger.json at http://localhost:/swagger/v1/swagger.json. Now either you can pass the link to swagger.json or make it accessible from file system. If you go the former route then you need to ensure your web api is up somewhere and updated or spin it up locally. I went ahead with downloading the file into file system using Swashbuckle.AspNetCore.Cli which can generate swagger.json from your web api assembly.
