Most of the time using the Zuplo Portal is the easiest way to configure your Zuplo Gateway, but sometimes it's nice to use your own IDE like VS Code. Zuplo doesn't (yet) support running your application fully locally, but you can edit your code locally.
To make local development easier, you can install the Zuplo node modules to enable code completion in Typescript and use the JSON schemas to provide tooling in your JSON files.
Typescript Code Completion
The Zuplo node modules include Typescript type definitions to assist with writing code in your handlers and plugins. To install these locally, simply run
npm install in your Zuplo project directly.
If you get an error installing the modules, it might be because your project is referencing an old version of the NPM modules. To upgrade your types to the latest version run:
npm i @zuplo/runtime@latest @zuplo/core@latest
With the types installed, you should get code completion inside of any
.ts file in your project.
JSON Schemas can be used for validation and code completion in your project. How these are configured will depend on what editor you are using.
Zuplo publishes the following JSON Schemas:
- Policies Config - config/policies.json
- Custom OpenAPI 3.1 - config/*.oas.json
- Custom OpenAPI 3.0 - config/*.oas.json
- Dev Portal Config - config/dev-portal.json
- Dev Portal Sidebar Config - docs/sidebar.json
- Legacy Routes Config - config/routes.json
To configure these files for validation and code completion in VS Code you can set the following in your
// If you use OpenAPI 3.0 change this to https://cdn.zuplo.com/schemas/openapi-v3.0-zuplo.json
