Do you automate the generation of your API specification and required clients?
  v2.0 Posted at 25/05/2019 12:42 PM by Tiago Araujo

If your changes to your WebAPI break your client, then you want to know right away.

Using NSwag you should generate your API client eg. Angular Client.

  • You run nswag.exe on the post-build event
  • Nswag will generate the client code and update the API client file directly

Figure: Good example – using NSwag config file helps with automation. Since the API client is generated automatically next time we build, any breaking changes will be obvious immediately

Now this is automated this is no longer a concern we need to deal with.
