apiaryio v1.0.5

Command-line utility for command-line tool

This tool allows to fetch and publish API Blueprint documentation into


npm install -g apiaryio


CLI tool allows to fetch and publish API Blueprint file from any environment. It may be useful in CI processes. Use apiary help to see full list of commands.

Fetch blueprint

Saves blueprint to local file.

apiary fetch <api_name> <token> --path=apiary.apib

Publish blueprint

Publishes blueprint to Apiary. Overwrites existing documentation.

apiary publish <api_name> <token> --path=apiary.apib

Preview blueprint

Open docs ( in browser.

apiary preview <api_name>

Use in code

var apiary = require('apiaryio');

// Publish code

apiary.publish("<API Blueprint source code>", "<api_name>", "<token>", function () {
    console.log("Docs successfully published");
}, function () {
    console.error("Error publishing docs");

// Fetch code

apiary.fetch("<api_name>", "<token>", function (code) {
    console.log("Blueprint content:")
}, function () {
    console.log("Error fetching docs");

Use in gulp with aglio

The best way to manage apiary docs is to use aglio. It allows to split huge API Blueprint file to small pieces with its own include mechanism.

Example of gulp file:

var gulp = require('gulp');
var gutil = require('gulp-util');
var gaglio = require('gulp-aglio');
var aglio = require('aglio');
var fs = require('fs');
var request = require('request');
var apiary = require('apiaryio');

var apiaryApiName = process.env.APIARY_NAME;
var apiaryApiKey = process.env.APIARY_KEY;

gulp.task('default', ['html'], function () {

gulp.task('compile', function (callback) {
    aglio.compileFile('api/main.apib', 'apiary.apib', function () {
        console.log("Compiled apiary.apib");

gulp.task('html', ['compile'], function () {
        .pipe(gaglio({template: 'default'}))
        .on('error', gutil.log)
    console.log("Rendered to html/apiary.html");

gulp.task('watch', ['html'], function () {'api/**/*.apib', ['html']);

gulp.task('publish', ['compile'], function (callback) {
    fs.readFile('apiary.apib', 'utf8', function (err, code) {
        apiary.publish(code, apiaryApiName, apiaryApiKey, function () {
            console.log("Successfully published to!");
            console.log("http://docs." + apiaryApiName + "");
        }, function (response, body) {
            console.warn("Publish error");
            console.log('Response:', body);

Help is required

I am not node.js developer, so any help is appreciated.

This library needs a refactoring and better error handling.
