NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::OpenAPI - OpenAPI / Swagger plugin for Mojolicious

SYNOPSIS

  use Mojolicious::Lite;

  # Will be moved under "basePath", resulting in "POST /api/echo"
  post "/echo" => sub {

    # Validate input request or return an error document
    my $c = shift->openapi->valid_input or return;

    # Generate some data
    my $data = {body => $c->validation->param("body")};

    # Validate the output response and render it to the user agent
    # using a custom "openapi" handler.
    $c->render(openapi => $data);
  }, "echo";

  # Load specification and start web server
  plugin OpenAPI => {url => "data://main/api.json"};
  app->start;

See Mojolicious::Plugin::OpenAPI::Guides::Tutorial for a tutorial on how to write a "full" app with application class and controllers.

DESCRIPTION

Mojolicious::Plugin::OpenAPI is Mojolicious::Plugin that add routes and input/output validation to your Mojolicious application based on a OpenAPI (Swagger) specification.

Have a look at the "SEE ALSO" for references to more documentation, or jump right to the tutorial.

Mojolicious::Plugin::OpenAPI will replace Mojolicious::Plugin::Swagger2.

HELPERS

openapi.spec

  $hash = $c->openapi->spec($json_pointer)
  $hash = $c->openapi->spec("/info/title")
  $hash = $c->openapi->spec;

Returns the OpenAPI specification. A JSON Pointer can be used to extract a given section of the specification. The default value of $json_pointer will be relative to the current operation. Example:

  {
    "paths": {
      "/pets": {
        "get": {
          // This datastructure is returned by default
        }
      }
    }
  }

openapi.render_spec

  $c = $c->openapi->render_spec;

Used to render the specification as either "html" or "json". Set the "stash" in Mojolicious variable "format" to change the format to render.

This helper is called by default, when accessing the "basePath" resource.

The "html" rendering needs improvement. Any help or feedback is much appreciated.

openapi.validate

  @errors = $c->openapi->validate;

Used to validate a request. @errors holds a list of JSON::Validator::Error objects or empty list on valid input.

Note that this helper is only for customization. You probably want "openapi.valid_input" in most cases.

Validated input parameters will be copied to Mojolicious::Controller/validation, which again can be extracted by the "name" in the parameters list from the spec. Example:

  # specification:
  "parameters": [{"in": "body", "name": "whatever", "schema": {"type": "object"}}],

  # controller
  my $body = $c->validation->param("whatever");

openapi.valid_input

  $c = $c->openapi->valid_input;

Returns the Mojolicious::Controller object if the input is valid or automatically render an error document if not and return false. See "SYNOPSIS" for example usage.

reply.openapi

This helper is discourage and might go away. Have a look at "RENDERER" instead.

RENDERER

This plugin register a new handler called openapi. The special thing about this handler is that it will validate the data before sending it back to the user agent. Examples:

  $c->render(json => {foo => 123});    # without validation
  $c->render(openapi => {foo => 123}); # with validation

This handler will also use "renderer" to format the output data. The code below shows the default "renderer" which generates JSON data:

  $app->plugin(
    OpenAPI => {
      renderer => sub {
        my ($c, $data) = @_;
        return Mojo::JSON::encode_json($data);
      }
    }
  );

METHODS

register

  $self->register($app, \%config);

Loads the OpenAPI specification, validates it and add routes to $app. It will also set up "HELPERS" and adds a before_render hook for auto-rendering of error documents.

%config can have:

  • allow_invalid_ref

    The OpenAPI specification does not allow "$ref" at every level, but setting this flag to a true value will ignore the $ref check.

    Note that setting this attribute is discourage.

  • coerce

    See "coerce" in JSON::Validator for possible values that coerce can take.

    Default: 1

  • log_level

    log_level is used when logging invalid request/response error messages.

    Default: "warn".

  • renderer

    See "RENDERER".

  • route

    route can be specified in case you want to have a protected API. Example:

      $app->plugin(OpenAPI => {
        route => $app->routes->under("/api")->to("user#auth"),
        url   => $app->home->rel_file("cool.api"),
      });
  • spec_route_name

    Name of the route that handles the "basePath" part of the specification and serves the specification. Defaults to "x-mojo-name" in the specification at the top level.

  • url

    See "schema" in JSON::Validator for the different url formats that is accepted.

    spec is an alias for "url", which might make more sense if your specification is written in perl, instead of JSON or YAML.

  • version_from_class

    Can be used to overriden /info/version in the API specification, from the return value from the VERSION() method in version_from_class.

    Defaults to the current $app.
