Clang API notes schema definition

API Notes Schema

Use this schema to validate Clang .apinotes files.

This JSON schema was developed using

The following rules were extracted from the CPP source:

  • Required properties (such as Name)
  • Enums for definitions of properties such SwiftWrapperKind (none, struct or enum)
  • Mutual exclusion such as for Tags where you must use EnumKind or EnumExtensibility / FlagEnum

Certain IDEs (IntelliJ) will report schema violations on the fly and will provide auto-completion of schema properties.
