🏭SDK Generator

The Saloon SDK Generator is a third-party Saloon plugin written and maintained by Crescat (Helge Sverre) and allows people to easily generate Saloon SDKs from an OpenAPI file or Postman collection. The generator can automatically create connectors, requests and responses for you to help save you time when starting a new SDK.

Note: This tool helps you set up the foundation for your SDK, but it might not create a complete, ready-to-use solution.


You can install the Saloon SDK Generator through Composer. You can install it globally on your machine and have a simple CLI to generate SDKs.

composer global require crescat-io/saloon-sdk-generator

The library requires PHP 8.1 and above

  • API_SPEC_FILE: Path to the API specification file (JSON or YAML format).

  • --type: Specify the type of API specification (postman or openapi).

  • --name: (Optional) Specify the name of the generated SDK (default: Unnamed).
