What is DapperDox?

DapperDox is an Open-Source API documentation generator and server for OpenAPI Swagger specifications.

It differs from other specification inspection tools in that it seamlessly combines your specifications with documentation, guides and diagrams, all of which can be authored in GitHub Flavoured Markdown.

This enables you to produce rich, browsable reference websites for your APIs.


  1. Author full documentation in GitHub Flavoured Markdown.
  2. Document multiple API specifications as a suite of cross-referenced products.
  3. Seamlessly overlay content onto the automatically generated reference documentation.
  4. Integrate the built-in API explorer with your APIs and authentication model.
  5. Proxy your developer platform, allowing full integration of API key management.
  6. Choose from multiple themes, or create your own.
