Docson is a tool that can render JSON schemas in a more human readable format, embedded in web pages.

This plugin will allow adding Docson widgets into Redmine wiki pages and issues.

Example JSON from Docson :

Installation notes

Install redmine_docson plugin:

cd $REDMINE_HOME/plugins
git clone

Restart Redmine to load the new plugin

To install docson embedded into Redmine, download docson into $REDMINE_HOME/public directory. For example:

git clone

Be warned: if docson is embedded with Redmine, JSON schemas must be served by Redmine to avoid cross-origin issues. In this case create also a folder for JSON schemas:

mkdir $REDMINE_HOME/public/jsonSchemas

Next go to the plugin settings page and set the URL for Docson and the root path of the JSON schemas:

  • for the Docson installation URL use a full URL (for example http://myserver:port/docson) or an URL relative to Redmine (example: /docson), more simple if Docson installation is embedded.
  • for the JSON schemas base path use a path relative to the Docson URL (example: /jsonSchemas). Using a full URL is allowed, but schemas cannot be loaded from a server different from Docson server if they are not served following CORS specifications.
