require "swagger"

builder = Swagger::Builder.new(
  title: "App API",
  version: "1.0.0",
  description: "This is a sample api for users",
  terms_url: "http://yourapp.com/terms",
  contact: Swagger::Contact.new("icyleaf", "icyleaf.cn@gmail.com", "http://icyleaf.com"),
  license: Swagger::License.new("MIT", "https://github.com/icyleaf/swagger/blob/master/LICENSE"),
  authorizations: [
    Swagger::Authorization.jwt(description: "Use JWT Auth"),

builder.add(Swagger::Controller.new("Users", "User resources", [
  Swagger::Action.new("get", "/users", description: "All users", responses: [
    Swagger::Response.new("200", "Success response")
  Swagger::Action.new("get", "/users/{id}", description: "Get user by id", parameters: [
    Swagger::Parameter.new("id", "path")
  ], responses: [
    Swagger::Response.new("200", "Success response"),
    Swagger::Response.new("404", "Not found user")
  ], authorization: true),

Running on web

Swagger provids a built-in web server, if you have no idea how to preview it:

require "swagger"
require "swagger/http/server"

# made your document (See `builder` code example above)
document = builder.built

# Run web server


Swagger has two HTTP handlers which you can integrate it to bult-in HTTP Server and mostly frameworks (like kemal, amber, lucky etc):

  • Swagger::HTTP::APIHandler
  • Swagger::HTTP::WebHandler
