OpenAPI v3 support for Sanic

Project description

Sanic OpenAPI v3

Build Status PyPI PyPI

Give your Sanic API an OpenAPI v3 specification. Based on original Sanic OpenAPI extension.


pip install sanic-openapi3


Import blueprint and use simple decorators to document routes:

from sanic_openapi3 import openapi, openapi_blueprint

@openapi.summary("Fetches a user by ID")
@openapi.response(200, { "user": { "name": str, "id": int } })
async def get_user(request, user_id):
@openapi.summary("Creates a user")
@openapi.body({"user": { "name": str }})
async def create_user(request):


You'll now have a specification at the URL /openapi.json. Your routes will be automatically categorized by their blueprints.

Model your input/output

class Car:
    make = str
    model = str
    year = int

class Garage:
    spaces = int
    cars = [Car]

@openapi.summary("Gets the whole garage")
@openapi.response(200, Garage)
async def get_garage(request):
    return json({
        "spaces": 2,
        "cars": [{"make": "Nissan", "model": "370Z"}]

Get more descriptive

class Car:
    make = doc.String("Who made the car")
    model = doc.String("Type of car.  This will vary by make")
    year = doc.Integer("4-digit year of the car", required=False)

class Garage:
    spaces = doc.Integer("How many cars can fit in the garage")
    cars = doc.List(Car, description="All cars in the garage")

Configure all the things

app.config.OPENAPI_VERSION = '1.0.0'
app.config.OPENAPI_TITLE = 'Car API'
app.config.OPENAPI_CONTACT_NAME = ''
