Swagger is a great tool, we used it in my previous job. We used Tornado, 
attached some hand-crafted code to RequestHandler class so that it 
inspected all its subclasses (i.e. different endpoint with REST 
methods), generated swagger file and presented the Swagger UI 
(https://github.com/swagger-api/swagger-ui) under some /docs/ URL.
What this gave us is that we could just add YAML specification directly 
to the docstring of the handler method and it would automatically appear 
in the UI. It's worth noting that the UI provides an interactive form 
for sending requests to the API so that tinkering with the API is easy [1].
