express-jsdoc-swagger

With this library, you can document your express endpoints using swagger OpenAPI 3 Specification without writing YAML or JSON. You can write jsdoc comments on each endpoint, and the library is going to create the swagger UI.

Prerequisites

This library assumes you are using:

  1. NodeJS
  2. Express.js

Installation

npm i express-jsdoc-swagger

Usage

const express = require('express');
const expressJSDocSwagger = require('express-jsdoc-swagger');
 
const options = {
  info: {
    version: '1.0.0',
    title: 'Albums store',
    license: {
      name: 'MIT',
    },
  },
  security: {
    BasicAuth: {
      type: 'http',
      scheme: 'basic',
    },
  },
  filesPattern: './**/*.js', // Glob pattern to find your jsdoc files (it supports arrays too ['./**/*.controller.js', './**/*.route.js'])
  swaggerUIPath: '/your-url', // SwaggerUI will be render in this url. Default: '/api-docs'
  baseDir: __dirname,
};
 
const app = express();
const PORT = 3000;
 
expressJSDocSwagger(app)(options);
 
/**

app.get('/api/v1', (req, res) => res.json({
