Rest api documentation automatic generation

I recently started recearching the Rest API documentation and i am really interested in automatic documentation of my APIs.

Are there any automatic tools that can generate documentation for standard methods of an API? I am particullary interested in open source tools but i wouldn't say no to a paid solution if it fits my needs. Also a huge plus would be if an automatic xml documentation was included.

Are there any solutions that would make the documentation fun and easy to use?

Answer

There are many options available that will do this. This article provides a list of a small number of popular options:

Googling for "self documenting REST framework" gives many more options. I recommend you do some research on each option and I'm sure you will find one that fits your needs.
