Build Status

json-schema-codegen

Generate code from JSON schema files.

Table of contents

Introduction

This is a command line tool to take a json-schema file and generate code automatically.

For instance this json-schema definition:

{
  "$schema": "http://json-schema.org/draft-04/schema#",
  "title": "Test",
  "type": "object",
  "properties": {
    "id": { "type": "integer" }
  }
}

will generate this Python code:

class Test(object):
    def __init__(self, data=None):
        data = data or {}

        self.id = data.get("id")

or this JavaScript+Flow code:

export class Test {
  id: ?number;

  constructor(data: Object = {}) {
    this.id = data.id;
  }
}

Currently this tool generates code for Python and JavaScript with Flow annotations but it can be extended to generate code for any language.

The code generation is divided in two stages:

  1. generate the AST for the target language from the json-schema file
  2. convert the AST into the target language

This allows the tool to be language agnostic, that is it just needs to generate the AST in JSON format for the target language and then a language specific tool will convert this AST into proper code.

Currently supported languages

List of currently supported languages:

  • Python 2.7+
  • JavaScript ES7+ with Flow annotations
  • pure Flow annotations

Requirements

  • Python 3.x
  • Node v8.4+

Installation

Until this pull request in setuptools is fixed, the only way to install json-schema-codegen is to clone the repo:

git clone https://github.com/expobrain/json-schema-codegen.git

Usage

usage: json_codegen.py [-h] [--prefix PREFIX] [--language LANGUAGE]
                       [--output OUTPUT]
                       schema

positional arguments:
  schema                Definition of the PRD as JSON schema

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --prefix PREFIX, -p PREFIX
                        Optional prefix for generated classes
  --language LANGUAGE, -l LANGUAGE
                        Output language. Default is python
  --output OUTPUT, -o OUTPUT
                        Output filename for the generated code

Code generation

Python 2

The generation of Python's code is integrated into the tool so it needs just a single invocation:

json_codegen --language python --output <output_py_file> <json-schema>

Python 3

The egenerator of pure Python 3 compatible code:

json_codegen --language python3 --output <output_py_file> <json-schema>

Python 3+Marshmallow

The generation of Python 3's code with Marshmallow support is integrated into the tool so it needs just a single invocation:

json_codegen --language python3+marshmallow --output <output_py_file> <json-schema>

JavaScript+Flow and Flow

Generating JavaScript+Flow and Flow code involves two steps, generating the AST:

json_codegen --language [javascript+flow|flow] --output <output_ast_json> <json-schema>

and generating the code from the AST:

bin/ast_to_js <output_ast_json> <output_js_file>

Contribute

Clone the repository, install packages and setup git hooks:

git clone https://github.com/expobrain/json-schema-codegen
pip install -r requirements_dev.txt
yarn install
git config core.hooksPath .githooks
