Setting up Swagger in ASP.NET Core

Swagger is one of my favorite tools when building a WebAPI. It’s good to see support quickly coming to ASP.NET Core from the folks at Swashbuckle. For those of you that might be unfamiliar, Swashbuckle is a framework that enables swagger generation in ASP.NET (and now ASP.NET Core).

It’s only in pre-release, so if you have your filters on you might come up empty handed.

1. Enter this into your Nuget Console to install:

Install-Package Swashbuckle.AspNetCore -Pre

2. Enable Swagger Generation Service:

3. Enable Swagger metadata endpoint and (optionally) Swagger UI endpoint

For development purposes I usually always open up Swagger UI. Its insanely useful for web developers on your team that aren’t comfortable (or equipped with the tools) to go spelunking through your WebAPI code.
