Special Files

Apigentools supports special files in the generated clients that modify the behavior of the generation process


This file can be placed at the root of any generated client folder. Each line contains a regex to a file and path of each generated file. Ex:


This tells apigentools that the all files in the docs folder, and all files in the api folder that don't end in _test. are generated files. Passing the --delete-generated-files flag into apigentools generate will cause any files matching these regexes to be deleted prior to the next generation.

This ensures that the generated files always winds up in a clean state between generations, while leaving behind any manually written code, such as tests, utility methods, CI files, etc.
