Yesterday we kicked off an internal project that we can work on while we are on the bench. The company intranet site.

A Green Field API

So this is the first time I am using OpenAPI to document and then generate a skeleton application. We have a green field application so I may as well use the time to learn a new tool. IntelliJ has a plug-in to support OpenAPI, but I have found that the Swagger Editor to be useful for building the initial API definition. I cloned the repository and it took a couple of tries to get it working on Windows using WSL.
