For implementations supporting only draft-04 or older, or that are no longer in development, see the Obsolete Implementations page.

Implementations below are written in different languages, and support part, or all, of at least one recent version of the specification.

Implementations are classified based on their functionality. When known, the license of the project is also mentioned.

  • Python

    • FastAPI (MIT) is an API framework based on Python 3.6+ types that generates OpenAPI 3 schemas, including JSON Schemas for all the models declared.

Schema generators

Schema generators need not support generating every schema keyword. For schema generators, compatibility with a draft means that either:

  • Schemas produced explicitly set the draft with $schema
  • Schemas produced lack $schema but are valid against the appropriate meta-schema

For example, the only incompatibilities between draft-04 and draft-06 involve exclusiveMinimum, exclusiveMaximum, and id vs $id. If a generator does not set $schema and does not ever emit those keywords, then it is compatible with draft-06 even if it was written with draft-04 in mind.

  • Dataspecer

Generators from schemas

Tools that generate artifacts from schemas need not support every keyword, as not all keywords work well for generative use cases.

Generators are considered compatible with a draft if they support (or benignly ignore) the appropriate $schema value, and interpret the keywords that they do support according to that draft.

For example, if a generator that was originally written for draft-04 does not support id, exclusiveMinimum, or exclusiveMaximum, then as long as it does not require a draft-04 $schema, it is compatible with draft-06 since those are the only keywords that changed.
