HTTP File Generator

Generate .http files from OpenAPI specifications

.http files were made popular by the Visual Studio Code extension REST Client, which then was adopted by JetBrains IDE's, and later on Visual Studio 2022

-rw-r--r-- 1 christian 197121  541 Dec 10 10:44 PutUpdateUser.http

In this example, the contents of PostAddPet.http looks like this:

@contentType = application/json

#############################################
### Request: POST /pet
### Summary: Add a new pet to the store
### Description: Add a new pet to the store
#############################################

POST https://petstore3.swagger.io/api/v3/pet
Content-Type: {{contentType}}

{
  "id": 0,
  "name": "name",
  "category": {
    "id": 0,
    "name": "name"
  },
  "photoUrls": [
    ""
  ],
  "tags": [
    {
      "id": 0,
      "name": "name"
    }
  ],
  "status": "available"
}

and the contents of GetPetById.http looks like this:

@contentType = application/json

#######################################
### Request: GET /pet/{petId}
### Summary: Find pet by ID
### Description: Returns a single pet
#######################################

### Path Parameter: ID of pet to return
@petId = 0

GET https://petstore3.swagger.io/api/v3/pet/{{petId}}
Content-Type: {{contentType}}

Here's an advanced example of generating .http files for a REST API hosted on Microsoft Azure that uses the Microsoft Entra ID service as an STS. For this example, I use PowerShell and Azure CLI to retrieve an access token for the user I'm currently logged in with.

az account get-access-token --scope [Some Application ID URI]/.default `
| ConvertFrom-Json `
| %{
    httpgenerator `
        https://api.example.com/swagger/v1/swagger.json `
        --authorization-header ("Bearer " + $_.accessToken) `
        --base-url https://api.example.com `
        --output ./HttpFiles 
}

You can also use the --azure-scope and azure-tenant-id arguments internally use DefaultAzureCredentials from the Microsoft.Extensions.Azure NuGet package to retrieve an access token for the specified scope.

httpgenerator `
  https://api.example.com/swagger/v1/swagger.json `
  --azure-scope [Some Application ID URI]/.default `
  --base-url https://api.example.com `
  --output ./HttpFiles
