Generate swagger from a Cornice application

Project Description

Cornice Swagger

Cornice extension to generate OpenAPI/Swagger Specification

Cornice Swagger creates an OpenAPI/Swagger 2.0 compliant specification from Cornice applications maximizing the extracted documentation data from functional code, while allowing users to override some parts of the generated document.

0.5.1 (2017-04-10)

Pyramid compliance

  • Support subpaths and regex when parsing paths (#68).


  • _extract_path_from_service, now returns the path name along with the path swagger object (#68).

0.5.0 (2017-02-14)


  • Allow implementing a custom generator by subclassing the CorniceSwagger class (#63).
  • Introduced a new method CorniceSwagger.generate to generate the spec (#63).
  • Deprecated CorniceSwagger call method. You should now use generate (#63).
  • Removed deprecated generate_swagger_spec call. (#64).
  • Allow defining custom type converters on the CorniceSwagger class. (#65)


  • Fixed coveralls repeated messages on PRs. (#62).

  • Summaries from docstrings are now not included by default. You can enable them by passing summary_docstrings = True to the generator.
  • Trying to document multiple views on same method now raises an exception. You should ignore the unwanted ones by content type.
  • Raw swagger items are now recursively merged (instead of replaced) with the extracted fields.
  • Add support for documenting operation ids via an operation_id argument on the view or by passing a default_op_ids callable to the generator.
  • Add a shortcut to the generator on cornice_swagger.CorniceSwagger.
  • Support Cornice schema synonyms (headers and GET are the same as header and querystring).
  • Add support for documenting security properties via a api_security list on the view or by passing a default_security list or callable to the generator.

OpenAPI compliance

  • Remove invalid title field from response headers and request parameters.
  • Support conversion of parameter validators.


  • Fix default tag generator.
  • Fix references when using declarative schemas.
  • Simplify parameter converter by properly isolating body.

  • Use cornice_swagger.swagger.CorniceSwagger class to generate the swagger document rather then generate_swagger_spec.
  • Allow overriding extractors in the application.

  • Allow documenting responses via response_schemas view attribute.
  • Allow documenting tags via tags view attribute or using a default_tags parameter when calling the generator.
