With this package you can easily generate Handlers, Models and Routes according to your OpenAPI Specification (OAS) 3.0 config.


  • Zend Expressive +3.0


composer require bradcrumb/ze-swagger-codegen


Simply place your openapi.json inside of your project root and run the following command:

vendor/bin/swagger codegen

By default the choosen namespace will be App. You can overwrite the namespace with the --namespace option:

vendor/bin/swagger codegen --namespace MyOwnNamespace

The CLI will search for the correct path inside of the composer autoloading. When a namespace is not registered for autoloading it will ask if the namespace folder have to be created and registered in composer.json.


The Codegen will generate the following files:

File Description
config/autoload/ Generated dependency and hydrators config
config/swagger.routes.php Swagger routing config
*/Handler/* Namespace to put all generated Handlers
*/Model/* Namespace to put all generated Models
*/Hydrator/* Namespace to put all generated Hydrators

Model Middleware

Every route that requires a Model in its RequestBody has a prepended Middleware: Swagger\Middleware\ModelMiddleware.

The Middleware retrieves the RequestBody, hydrates the correct Model and validates the Model.

When the RequestBody is invalid it simply returns all errors messages for every property in a 400 response.

When the RequestBody is valid the hydrated model will be added as attribute to the request and can be retrieved inside the Handler:
