We have published the JSight Online Editor code on GitHub under the Apache 2.0 license. Our project was initially intended to be open-source, and we are already a step away from it. Along with the JSight Online Editor code, we also published several libraries and, most importantly, JSight language specifications.

If you’re a developer and willing to spend some time on JSight, welcome to our open-source team! Write to us here:

Also, if you enjoy JSight, star us on GitHub, this is very important for us.

We are happy to announce the release of a new version of JSight Online Editor 4.0..

The official release page is here.

Main feature of the release: You can now share API documentation via a unique link. All you need to do is click on the “Share” button and copy the link.

We also thought about versioning the API documentation. It can be done like this:

  1. Open the API documentation via a unique link, for example,
  2. Make changes to the API.
  3. Click on the “Share” button and select the option “Update API”.
  4. Your changes are saved with a new link which has a new version number. The new link completely matches the first link, except for the last digit - the version number, which is increased by one

Sharing documents via a link will provide you with three fantastic benefits:

  1. Quickly share and discuss an API description with a colleague.
  2. Store API documentation in the editor's cloud.
  3. View the entire history of document modifications. (You can always revert to any previous version of the API by simply decreasing the version number in the link).

Another major update in release 4.0 is improved JSight syntax highlighting. Now the editor accurately highlights all the syntax features of the JSight API language.

Hi everybody! We have a new release of JSight Online Editor 3.0! The official release page may be found here: JSight Online Editor 3.0 Release Notes.

There are two cool features in this version:

Firstly, “Preview” and “Export” buttons are added. By using these buttons, you can see the final API documentation design and, if you like it, download it in HTML format.

Secondly, we have added macros support into the JSight language. And it's really very cool! JSight now looks like a true programming language (programmers will understand us). With the directive MACRO, you may now declare a macro, and with the directive PASTE, you may paste this macro anywhere in your API an unlimited number of times. Macros are useful, for instance, for quick attachment of standard responses to each resource in case of an error. As an example:

GET /cats

200 [@cat]
PASTE @commonErrors

GET /dogs

200 [@dog]
PASTE @commonErrors

MACRO @commonErrors
400 any
401 any
405 any
500 any

You can read more about the directives MACRO and PASTE in the JSight language specification:

We have also improved the UX in some places and fixed a few minor bugs.

We plan to release the next version of JSight Online Editor 4.0 by the end of May. The main innovation of this version will be the “Share” button. With this button, you will be able to save documentation in the cloud and share it with colleagues just by sending them a unique link to the document.

We also hope to add JSON-RPC support to the JSight language in the near future.
