  • Hey arjunrajas005. What exactly are you trying to install here? SwaggerHub on-prem? Swagger UI? Swagger Editor? More info will help me answer the question, thanks.

        Hi arjunrajas005,


        Could you describe the steps you took to get to where you are now? That would help us determine how to get you the expected results. 


        Otherwise, here is a set of steps I wrote up the other day to download, install, and run the Swagger editor & UI locally:


        Here’s how you can download and run the Swagger Editor locally. It’s not as simple as downloading a .exe file and running it, you’ll need to download it using git, compile it using Node/npm, and run it using npm again.

        First you’ll need to make sure you have these installed on your machine:

        1. - Git
        2. - Node.js
        3. - Npm (Node Package Manager)

        Node.js and npm can be downloaded here:

        Next, you’ll want to run these commands from your terminal/command prompt (be sure you run them in the folder where you want to run the Swagger Editor from as it will download all the files from GitHub):


        git clone

        cd swagger-editor

        npm install

        npm run build

        npm start


        You’ll know it’s ready to be used when you see a message like this:


        Starting up http-server, serving ./

        Available on:


        Once you see this message, simply put the address into your browser and you should see the editor.


        There is also a way to run the editor locally using a docker image. You can find the instructions to do that here:


        Let us know if you have any more questions,
