Usage examples

This will render the api.yml file in the current directory as myapi.html file in the current directory.

$ api2html -o myapi.html myapi.yml

Use custom logo

This will render the api.yml file in the current directory as myapi.html file in the same directory, and use the custom logo mylogo.png.

$ api2html -o myapi.html -c mylogo.png myapi.yml

Define which language examples should be generated

This will render the api.yml file in the current directory as myapi.html file in the same directory, and use go and javascript examples.

$ api2html -o myapi.html -l go,javascript myapi.yml

Use different syntax highlighter

This will render the api.yml file in the current directory as myapi.html file in the same directory, and use go and javascript examples, as well as a different syntax higlighter from highlight.js.

$ api2html -o myapi.html -l go,javascript -t arta myapi.yml

Resolve external dependencies

If you add refs to external files in your source file, you can enable them by using -r <source>. The following command will resolve all your relative imports from the current directory.

$ api2html -o myapi.html -r ./ myapi.yml
