Hosting Docs

Apiary provides a service for creating and hosting API documentation described in the API Blueprint or Swagger format. Once the API description is complete, Apiary generates interactive documentation in a three column layout. Example requests and responses are shown for every endpoint in multiple programming languages. It also enables the user to make requests to your live API.

Building Docs

To build Apiary style docs locally, you need to install the Apiary CLI Tools. The full instructions are available here.

Once it is installed, navigate to the directory containing your .apib file and run:

apiary preview --path="myfile.apib" --output="myfile.html"

This will validate your .apib file and create the HTML file. You can then view the document in your browser.
