How to use the Redocly CLI

With Redocly CLI, you can bundle your OpenAPI definition and API documentation (made with Redoc) into a zero-dependency HTML file and render it locally.

Step 1 - Install Redocly CLI

First, you need to install the @redocly/cli package.

You can install it globally using npm or Yarn.

Or you can install it during runtime using npx or Docker.

Step 2 - Build the HTML file

The Redocly CLI build-docs command builds Redoc into a zero-dependency HTML file.

To build a zero-dependency HTML file using Redocly CLI, enter the following command, replacing apis/openapi.yaml with your API definition file's name and path:

redocly build-docs apis/openapi.yaml

See the build-docs documentation for more information on the different options and ways you can use the command.
