About Kubb


Kubb's name is based on the popular Swedisch game Kubb.

Kubb (pronounced [kubː] in Swedish and Gutnish) is a lawn game where the objective is to knock over wooden blocks (kubbar) by throwing wooden batons (kastpinnar) at them. Kubb can be described as a combination of bowling and horseshoes.
This is one of my favorite games to play in the summer, so when I was searching for an easy and short name I took `Kubb`. When reading the name you would think `Kubb` means cube which also refers to that every feature is its plugin or with other words: **a cube per feature**.

At this moment Kubb is a library to create clients based on a Swagger file but Kubb was designed to also work with something else than Swagger. Because everything is a plugin, it will also make it really easy for other developers to create their plugin that implements for example a generation for GraphQL. See Create your plugin for more information about how to create your plugin.
