Fern is an open source format for defining REST APIs.

Generate SDKs, API documentation, and server boilerplate.

What you get



Unlike most auto-generated SDKs, ours are idiomatic and feel handwritten. Fern handles publishing to GitHub and registries.
Try it out

Server boilerplate

Fern generates the types and networking logic for you. Just implement the business logic, and you’re good to go.


Offer a Postman Collection, complete with examples of successful and unsuccessful requests.
Run in Postman


Get an OpenAPI spec, which you can feed into the endless list of tools that support OpenAPI.

Loved by developers

Free up developer time and increase product velocity.

I really dislike most autogenerated code, but Fern’s genuinely feels like we have a developer writing it - would highly recommend.

Founder and CEO at PropelAuth

Fern sped up new API development by at least 50%. The bits sped up are the most tedious, annoying parts.

I investigated how my engineering team should go about offering SDKs (Node, Python, Java, etc.) My recommendation was "Fern... please".
