    With the file created, we can now generate more friendly documentation. For this, we need to install generator or use it in its Docker version.

    This can be improved and extended overtime, especially because of the way the generator is designed, enabling extensibility so we can have templates for many other languages that support more protocols, etc. For example, there is only a NATS generator for .NET Core... but perhaps in the future there could be more protocols supported for .NET Core and examples built for Azure 😃.

    One piece of tooling that is often used are generators that produce documentation and code. For example gRPC tools have this capability using the protocol buffer compiler. AsyncAPI generators can take an AsyncAPI document and generate client/server code or documentation in HTML and markdown. Currently, it depends on the template we use to generate server-side code, for example the Node.js WebSocket template generates both server and client code.
