go-raml

Build Status

What is go-raml

When creating and maintaining api's, there are two approaches:

  • Design first

    You design the api, all methods, descriptions and types from the api point of view. Afterwards, you generate all the boilerplate code and documentation to bootstrap the code.

  • Code first

    When modifying the implementation, the interface definitions need to be kept in sync. Besides the good practice of keeping your specification up to date, it is used by other tools to generate clients, documentation, ...

This tool supports both (or at least, this is on the roadmap). As a specification format, it uses RAML 1.0 .

RAML versions

Only RAML version 1.0 RC is supported.

Currently there are still some limitations on the RAML 1.0 features that are supported.

Install

make sure you have at least go 1.6 installed !

Install godep as package manager

$go get -u github.com/tools/godep

Install go-bindata, we need it to compile the template files to .go file

go get -u github.com/jteeuwen/go-bindata/...

Install go-raml

go get -u github.com/Jumpscale/go-raml

Build
cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/Jumpscale/go-raml
sh build.sh

Usage

To use it on the commandline, just execute go-raml without any arguments, it will output the help on the stdout.

To invoke the codegeneration using go generate, specify the generation in 1 of your go source files: //go:generate go-raml ...

go-raml needs to be on the path for this to work off course.

Code generation

Internally, go templates are used to generate the code, this provides a flexible way to alter the generated code and to add different languages for the client.

Server

go-raml able to generate Go & Python server. API Docs also generated in /apidocs/ endpoint. API Docs generation can be disabled by specifying no-apidocs option.

Go Server

To generate the Go code for implementing the server in first design approach, execute

go-raml server -l go --dir ./result_directory --ramlfile api.raml

The generated server uses Gorilla Mux as HTTP request multiplexer.

-Generated codestructure: -* Interfaces types, always regenerated -* Implementing types, only generated when the file is not present

Flask/Python Server

To generate the Flask/Python code for implementing the server in first design approach, execute

go-raml server -l python --dir ./result_directory --ramlfile api.raml

Code Generator Options
   --language, -l "go"  Language to construct a server for
   --dir "."        target directory
   --ramlfile "."   Source raml file
   --package "main" package name
   --no-main        Do not generate a main.go file
   --no-apidocs     Do not generate API Docs in /apidocs/ endpoint

Client

go-raml client --language go --dir ./result_directory --ramlfile api.raml

A go 1.5.x compatible client is generated in result_directory directory.

go-raml client --language python --dir ./result_directory --ramlfile api.raml

A python 3.5 compatible client is generated in result_directory directory.

Type

types is mapped to struct.

Some rules about properties naming:

  • capitalizing first character of the properties.
  • json tag is the same as property name

File name is the same as types name with lowercase letter. struct name = types name.

Type Mapping
Raml        |  Go   
----------- | -----------
string      | string
number      | float
integer     | int
boolean     | bool
date        | Date
enum        | []string
file        | string
sometype[]  | []sometype
sometype[][]| [][]sometype
sometype{}  | map[string]sometype
Union       | interface{}

Bodies

Request Body and response body are mapped into structs and following the same rules as types.

struct name = [Resource name][Method name][ReqBody|RespBody].

RequestBody generated from body node below method.

ResponseBody generated from body node below responses.

Resource

Resource in the server is mapped to:

  • interface:

    • file name = [resource]_if.go
    • always be regenerated
    • interface name = [resource]Interface
  • API implementation that implements the interface

    • file name = [resource]_api.go
    • only generated when the file is not present
    • struct name = [resource]API
  • routes for all necessary routes:

    • func name = [Resource]InterfaceRoutes

Header

Code related to requests headers are only generated in the Client lib. All functions have arguments to send any request header, the current client lib will not check the headers against the RAML specifications.

Response headers related code is only generated in the server in the form of commented code, example:

// uncomment below line to add header
// w.Header.Set("key","value")

Query Strings and Query Parameters

All client library functions have arguments to send Query Strings and Query Parameters, the current client lib will not check it against the RAML specifications.

The generated code in the server is in the form of commented code:

// name := req.FormValue("name")

Input Validation

Validation      |    Go     | Python

------------------------------- | ------------- | ----------- minLength | v | v maxLength | v | v pattern | v | v minimum | v | v maximum | v | v format | x | x multipleOf | v | v array field minItems | v | v array field maxItems | v | v array field uniqueItems | v | x array Type minItems | v | x array Type maxItems | v | x array Type uniqueItems | v | x

Specification file

Besides generation of a new RAML specification file, updating an existing raml file is also supported. This way the raml filestructure that can be included in the main raml file is honored.

go-raml spec ...
