Swagger codegen is a way to take advantage of the API declarations provided by swagger. Yes you get a beautiful user interface! But having knowledge of your API allows for some amazing things. Swagger codegen provides the structure to take this to the next level.
Yes the client library generation is hugely valuable. In the 2.0 release we’ve added support for ruby clients, python3, and objective-c. Again, the templates are YOURS to modify to suit your coding style.
Finally, and most importantly, swagger-ui, swagger-core, swagger-codegen is open source. We have open sourced this framework to give back to the OSS community which has helped Wordnik so substantially. Plus, it’s WAY too cool to keep in-house only.
Thanks, and as always, please feel free to post questions on our support group or in irc at #swagger
