Angular Application that use the standard API discovery in InterSystems IRIS in order to inspect existing APIs and create new APIs using Swagger 2.0 OpenAPI specification

What's new in this version

Upgrade to IRIS Community 2019.4

IRIS Explorer

This App demo the InterSystems IRIS REST API discovery and API generation (InterSystems IRIS version 2019.1).
There is a nice article explaining the background at InterSystems Developer Community:


In order to run this app easier I prepared a Docker container for a quick start
This IRIS API Explorer docker file is using iris-community:2019.4.0.383.0 from docker store

Docker Compose

The project come ready to run on Docker. From the project directory you have only to execute:

docker-compose build
docker-compose up -d

This command starts two docker compose services:

  • iris-explorer_web [the angular app deployed in a NGIX web server]
  • iris-exploreer_iris [iris 2019.4]

When you have everything up you need to start session in IRIS http://localhost:55773/csp/sys/%25CSP.Portal.Home.zen using superuser/SYS and change the login password to a new one. Once you change the password you can access to the Angular app http://localhost:8000/home and start exploring IRIS APIs using the IRIS instance up in localhost:55773 and the user and password you used before to access to the IRIS instance ‘superuser’.

When you finish your demo then execute:

docker-compose down

and everything stop smooth

Development server

Run ng serve for a dev server. Navigate to http://localhost:4200/. The app will automatically reload if you change any of the source files.

The application support i18n translations in order to run with another language run:

ng serve --aot --i18nFile=src/locale/messages.es.xlf --i18nFormat=xlf --locale=es

More help about how to configure i18n here [https://v5.angular.io/guide/i18n]
