  • Using swaggo to generate typescript types | 2021-10-10
    Hi, we use swaggo to generate the documentation and then to generate a typescript-axios client-stub. The plan for us is to publish this client stub to a private npm registry for our frontend. Hope it helps.

    Second, are these APIs implemented with a standard like openapi? If so, you can generate the DTO/Data transfer objects from their schema/spec using something like this
  • Looking for full-featured OpenAPI generator for Go | 2021-09-26 is the best there is imo. DB CRUD support probably won't happen in that project, if you wanted to you could extend it with java code and moustache template tweaks to make it generate whatever Go code you need. | 2021-09-26
    I have been using for work and personal sutff. It is very minimalist, and uses interface for the server, so iteration easier. It can also generate the types that you need for models, and a client for testing if needed. It does not generate a ton of files like | 2021-09-26

  • Type-safe OpenAPI server for Rust? | 2021-09-19
    I was assuming the main (official??) Generator and one output language. Their cli(frontend) tool seems to save the version of the backend and recommends checking in the version file and sticking with one version. | 2021-09-19
    We started with the Swagger generator ( then moved to the OpenAPI Tools generator ( when a bunch of the developers left.

    As for the rest, the idea is why design something you don't need to? If you use the OpenAPI generator, you can generate all the code you are writing and don't have to call the exchange method at all. For example, the OpenAPI code generator for the Pet Store API can generate all this code, and all you have to do is this:
  • AsyncAPI vs. OpenAPI: Answers to Your Burning Questions | 2021-09-09
    I think the core goal is to have one machine-readable source of truth for your API. You can write docs, the API interface, API input validation and 10 per-language SDKs & clients all by hand, but then they very quickly get out of sync, and nobody knows which is 'right'. If you write docs as prose, good luck keeping it updated when management wants it translated into 10 languages and the API changes every week.

    Meanwhile, at least in theory, with a good central spec you can generate at least the docs & much of this code, or alternatively automatically validate custom implementations & real traffic to get immediate warnings if there are discrepancies.

    There's a lot of power in formal specifications.

    That is all dependent on tooling though. OpenAPI is far ahead in that respect, and can achieve this goal for most HTTP APIs & a huge list of languages (see pretty effectively. AsyncAPI is much newer though, and I think the ecosystem is still quite small, but hopefully they'll get there too eventually.
