Project description

Cornice Swagger

pypi docs slack travis master-coverage

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.
