Swagger: REST API Documentation Generator

August 24 2013, 3:04pm

Swagger is a popular open source spec to auto-generate very nice looking API documentation with the ability to easily try any API request. You can use the Swagger's own swagger-core framework for node.js, Java or scala, but there's is also support in many other languages because of the strong open source community behind it for other languages like PHP, Ruby, Python, etc. Swagger's biggest open source competitor is Mashery's I/O Docs.
