Brilliant plugin that makes adding API documentation easy. Enables swagger YAML file to be added to existing WP pages. It allows you to either reference an offline file uploaded to WP or reference a single version of the truth hosted on your own server. I must admit I struggled to get this working initially, but as it seemed the most suitable plug-in I could find, I was determined to persevere. Turns out the issues were no fault of the plug-in – just over zealous security precautions on the web hosting site and I was fortunate that the developer was willing to assist – as it was beyond my technical ability to identify what was going on. I am very grateful for the responsiveness of Vinay, in trouble shooting to help find the cause of the issues. He is very knowledgeable and generous with his time.Highly recommended.

It’s a great plugin, the swagger shows beautiful where ever you want on your site. However, it loads your site with JS files even on pages where no swagger is shown. And that is an absolute killer for your site. JS loaded where not needed is terrible and unnecessary. If this is not fixed soon I will have to search for a replacement.
