[Show NC] An offline GUI swagger codegenerator
Unless you live under a rock I am sure you must be knowing of the awesome Swagger spec that makes writing both client and server boilerplate really easy
They even have an API (and API to generate API - such APIception) at http://generator.swagger.io, and to top it off, they have a webapp where you can type your API spec in a editor, and it makes live documentation, and allows you to generate code for more than 10 server frameworks and over 20 client frameworks - http://editor.swagger.io
So I was really jobless today, and I cooked up a Java/Swing based offline GUI into which you can drop a swagger.yaml or swagger.json file, and it will spew out generated code for a whole many number of frameworks.
Here is the zip of the jar. Run it via the usual
java -jar swagger-codegen-gui.jarmethod
And I made a PR to swagger's original github repo too (https://github.com/swagger-api/swagger-codegen/pull/1770#issuecomment-167424000). If they are interested, I'll develop this further to add features like live docs, linting etc
Super, super useful. Planning to use Swagger for the backend portion of an app I've got in mind, and this is going to be a godsend.
