Typescript Interfaces

The TypeScript Generator allows you to create TypeScript interfaces that you can embed in any TypeScript-enabled project (React, Vue.js, Angular..)

To do so, run the client generator:

$ npx @api-platform/client-generator --generator typescript https://demo.api-platform.com src/ --resource foo
# Replace the URL by the entrypoint of your Hydra-enabled API
# "src/" represents where the interfaces will be generated
# Omit the resource flag to generate files for all resource types exposed by the API

This command parses the Hydra documentation and creates one .ts file for each API Resource you have defined in your application, in the interfaces subfolder.

NOTE: If you are not sure what the entrypoint is, see Troubleshooting


Assuming you have 2 resources in your application, Foo and Bar, when you run

npx @api-platform/client-generator --generator typescript https://demo.api-platform.com src/

you will obtain 2 .ts files arranged as following:

  • src/

    • interfaces/
    • foo.ts
    • bar.ts
