    The AutoRest tool generates client libraries for accessing RESTful web services. Input to AutoRest is a spec that describes the REST API using the OpenAPI Specification format.

    Support Policy

    AutoRest is an open source tool -- if you need assistance, first check the documentation. If you find a bug or need some help, feel free to submit an issue

    AutoRest will release a stable version on the second Wednesday of the month.

    Using npm you can upgrade to the latest stable version of AutoRest:

    Installing AutoRest

    Installing AutoRest on Windows, MacOS or Linux involves two steps:

    1. Install Node.js (node 10.16.x LTS is a bare minimum, node 12 and 13 have some great performance benfits.)

    for more help, check out Installing Node.JS on different platforms

    1. Install AutoRest using npm
    # Depending on your configuration you may need to be elevated or root to run this. (on OSX/Linux use 'sudo' )
    npm install -g autorest

    Updating AutoRest

    To update AutoRest if you have previous versions installed, please run:

    autorest --latest


    # Removes all other versions and installs the latest
    autorest --reset

    For more information, run autorest --help

    Supported Platforms

    While AutoRest itself runs on NodeJS, some generators use the .NET Core 2.0 runtime, which is the most limiting factor. See dotnet/core/release-notes/2.0/ for a list of supported platforms.
