Generate from JSON Data

This code generator can create pydantic models from JSON Data. Under the hood, the generator uses GenSON to create JSON Schema from your input. The generated schema is then processed the in the same manner as JSON Schema input data.


$ datamodel-codegen  --input pets.json --input-file-type json --output
