ServiceModelSwiftCodeGenerate is a foundational code generation library that can be used to generate code based on different service models. This library can be integrated into higher level code generation applications and provides some standard generation functions that can be called.

Getting Started

Step 1: Add the ServiceModelSwiftCodeGenerate dependency

ServiceModelSwiftCodeGenerate uses the Swift Package Manager. To use the framework, add the following dependency to your Package.swift-

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/amzn/service-model-swift-code-generate.git", .upToNextMajor(from: "0.1.0"))

Step 2: Use the library to generate code

The easiest way to integrate ServiceModelSwiftCodeGenerate into a higher level code generation application is to use ServiceModelGenerate.generateFromModel. This function takes a file path to a xml, json or yaml encoded service model, will attempt to parse that file into the required service model type and will then pass that model and a ServiceModelCodeGenerator to the provided function which can call any required generation functions.

extension ServiceModelCodeGenerator {
    func generateFromModel<ModelType: ServiceModel>(serviceModel: ModelType,
                                                    ...) throws {
        let myClientDelegate = ...
        let myModelErrorsDelegate = ...

        generateClient(delegate: myClientDelegate)
        generateModelErrors(delegate: myModelErrorsDelegate)
        generateDefaultInstances(generationType: .internalTypes)

        // Call any custom generation functions as required

public struct MyCodeGeneration {
    static let asyncResultType = AsyncResultType(typeName: "HTTPResult",
                                                 libraryImport: "SmokeHTTPClient")
    public static func generateFromModel<ModelType: ServiceModel>(
        modelFilePath: String,
        modelType: ModelType.Type,
        customizations: CodeGenerationCustomizations,
        applicationDescription: ApplicationDescription,
        modelOverride: ModelOverride?,
        ...) throws {
            func generatorFunction(codeGenerator: ServiceModelCodeGenerator,
                                   serviceModel: ModelType) throws {
                try codeGenerator.generateFromModel(serviceModel: serviceModel, ...)
            try ServiceModelGenerate.generateFromModel(
                    modelFilePath: modelFilePath,
                    customizations: customizations,
                    applicationDescription: applicationDescription,
                    modelOverride: modelOverride,
                    generatorFunction: generatorFunction)

Further Concepts

The ServiceModel Protocol

The ServiceModel protocol represents the parsed service model and provides access to descriptions of the operations, fields and errors. This library provides SwaggerServiceModel that conforms to this protocol and will parse a Swagger 2.0 specification file.

The ModelClientDelegate protocol

The ModelClientDelegate protocol provides customization points for the creation of service clients.

The ModelErrorsDelegate protocol

The ModelErrorsDelegate protocol provides customization points for handling errors returned from an application endpoint conforming to the service model.

The ModelOverride type

The ModelOverride type provides the opportunity to override values from the service model.

Stars: 6
Help us keep the lights on


0.5.0 - Oct 9, 2019

  1. Add model override options to ignore operations and response headers.
  2. Add model override option to specify the default value of an enumeration.
  3. Add Swift 5.0 and 5.1 CI Tests
  4. Fix compile issues on linux.

0.4.3 - Sep 27, 2019

Support Swagger syntax for String-keyed maps.

0.4.1 - Apr 5, 2019

Use variable name rather than type as a parameter when converting to allow multiple parameters of the same type in a structure.

0.4.0 - Apr 3, 2019

Detect errors that will normalize to the same name.

Note: This is a breaking change as it changes the contract of the ModelErrorsDelegate protocol.

0.3.0 - Mar 29, 2019

Create a stronger ModelErrorsDelegate protocol contract to be more flexible and to define specific customisation points.

Note: This is a breaking change as it changes the contract of the ModelErrorsDelegate protocol.
