Getting Started with OpenAPI Generator

To get started, you can download the OpenAPI generator CLI and run it locally via Homebrew, but in my experience using a Docker image provides more flexibility.


  • Install Docker Desktop
  • Start Docker
  • In a terminal app, run this command to download the openapi-generator docker image.
docker pull openapitools/openapi-generator-cli:v6.2.1

At this time 6.2.1 is the current stable release.

In order to try out OpenAPI Generator, we'll use the Petstore API specification to generate a TypeScript SDK.
