A library that simplifies Swaggerswagger integrations. This library handles the minutiae of loading Swagger documents (local and remote), resolving references (local, remote), building an object model and providing you with a rich set of APIs for things like Swagger document validation, request/response validation, etc. For more details on the available APIs, please view the API Documentation.
Sway will always be built around the latest stable release of Swagger, which happens to be version 2.0 right now. This means that its APIs and object model will be specific to that version of Swagger and supporting any other versions of Swagger will require a conversion step prior to using Sway.

sway is available for both Node.js and the browser. Installation instructions for each environment are below.


sway binaries for the browser are available in the dist/ directory:

Note: I realize these binaries are big and I'm working on making them smaller. Unfortunately, some of this is out of my control without rewriting some of the core features provided by third-party libraries currently contributing to the size issue.
Of course, these links are for the master builds so feel free to download from the release of your choice. Once you've gotten them downloaded, to use the standalone binaries, your HTML include might look like this:
<!-- ... -->
<script src="sway.js"></script>
<!-- ... -->


Installation for Node.js applications can be done via NPMnpm.
npm install sway --save
