An introduction to the AsyncAPI specification

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Klotho - AWS Cloud-aware infrastructure-from-code toolbox [NEW]
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • generator

    Use your AsyncAPI definition to generate literally anything. Markdown documentation, Node.js code, HTML documentation, anything!

    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.

  • RabbitMQ

    Open source RabbitMQ: core server and tier 1 (built-in) plugins

    Let's now include information related to how we will process project events. The specification does not limit the user to a specific solution. In this example, we will use RabbitMQ, but we could use Kafka, Mosquito, among others. So let's include in our document the configuration of our RabbitMQ servers:

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • In addition to the generator, there is an online tool to test the specification and Github Actions, parsers, and plugins for VSCode and IDEs based on IntelliJ.

  • spec

    The AsyncAPI specification allows you to create machine-readable definitions of your asynchronous APIs. (by asyncapi)

    But the subject of this post is another specification, the AsyncAPI. Inspired by the OpenAPI, the AsyncAPI goal is to document applications that use the Event-Driven Architectures or EDA.
