  1. Controllers

You can specify inside your controller that a tag should be added by putting the @ApiTags('cats') above the @Controller

import { ApiTags } from '@nestjs/swagger'

  1. Abstracted Decorators

As part of the JuicyLllama core package we have made available a number of abstracted decorators to handle the most common CRUD operations.

Example Project

If you are just getting started, we recommend setting up our quickstart client project. This will get you up and running quickly adopting framework best practise.

  1. Install the framework
  2. Install the quickstart project
