In this series of articles, I will introduce the different Swagger tools. Swagger is a very handy tool for API documentation. It allows you to generate “living” documentation, so that the documentation is always up to date, which is very difficult to do without this kind of tool. It also allows to generate code automatically, allowing the developer to focus on his core business. Finally, it is based on an open source specification format.
These articles focus on Swagger 2.0, while the 3.0 version (“OpenAPI 3.0.0”) is available.
This article is thus broken down into four parts :
- The Swagger framework,
- Setting up the set,
- The API test.
