How to protoype resources?

Hi - I’m interested in using the resource creation tooling for learning and investigation purposes but not to actually submit a real resource. Is this possible? Thanks.

I’ve successfully used in conjunction with the FHIR DSTU2 spec recently to prototype a bundle of 11 resources. Would recommend.

Hi Julie,

Do you want to create resources or create resource instances? For instances, you can use David Hay’s clinFHIR tool ( If you want to actually try creating new resources, then you’ll need to use Subversion to grab a copy of HL7’s build environment and set up your machine to do it. Instructions can be found on the wiki here:

Thanks, Lloyd. I’ll probably want to create both resources and instances at some point, but for now I want to create resources.

Thx, Vadim. I’ll give it a look.
