API Blueprint to Me

Processes API Blueprints both locally and remotely. Useful for pre-processing blueprints which have includes in them and then publishing them to Apiary for example.


  1. Install the package globally

    npm i -g @apib/2me
  2. Obtain a collection of API blueprint files which has includes and references other blueprint files. These includes may be specified using the following syntax:

    <!-- include(other/file.apib) -->

    Yes, you read correctly, it's just a comment with the word "include" inside!

  3. Run the command to render a full api blueprint

    apib2me file -i index.md -o full-blueprint.apib

Example Commands

Processing a blueprint locally and saving to a new file

Without specifying both an input and destination, the source will be interpreted as both being the same source.

apib2me file -i input-blueprint.md -o output.md

Saving a blueprint from Apiary

apib2me apiary:file -a apiname -k apiarytoken -o output-file.apib

Publishing a blueprint to Apiary

apib2me file:apiary -a apiname -k apiarytoken -i api-blueprint.apib
