  • 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.

    I'm already up to my elbows in AsciiDoc/Antora building a new online help platform, and I noticed that Swagger2Markup exists. No idea if it's any good, but I might be able to integrate it into my existing workflow and spit out some usable static content at the other end...

  • openapi-generator

    OpenAPI Generator allows generation of API client libraries (SDK generation), server stubs, documentation and configuration automatically given an OpenAPI Spec (v2, v3)

    Looks like we're on OAS3, and a quick google unearthed OpenAPI Generator which looks like it'll do the job nicely.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.
