Motivation •When consuming a Web API, understanding its various methods can be challenging for a developer.•Swagger, also known as OpenAPI, solves the problem of generating useful documentationand help pagesfor Web APIs. •It provides benefits such as interactive documentation, client SDK generation, and API discoverability.
What is Swagger?•Swagger is a language-agnostic specification for describing REST APIs. •The Swagger is an open source project.•Both names (Swagger/ OpenAPI) are used interchangeably; however, OpenAPI is preferred. •It allows both computers and humans to understand the capabilities of a service without any direct access to the implementation (source code, network access, documentation). •Main goal is to minimize the amount of work needed to connect disassociated services. •Other goal is to reduce the amount of time needed to accurately document a service.
Specifications•The Swagger flow is the Swagger specification—by default, a document named swagger.json.
