Swagger tutorial for REST API documentation
Swagger is a REST specification that allows you to generate interactive API documentation. I created a tutorial for using Swagger in the API doc course I’m working on.
In my Swagger tutorial, I show you how to use the Swagger Petstore example as well as how to build your own Swagger output. If you go through the tutorial, let me know if you have any feedback.
