apiDocjs vs Swagger Codegen: What are the differences?

Developers describe apiDocjs as "Inline Documentation for RESTful web APIs". It creates a documentation from API annotations in your source code. It includes a default template which uses handlebars, Bootstrap, RequireJS and jQuery for the output of the generated apidata.js and apiproject.js as a html-page. On the other hand, Swagger Codegen is detailed as "*Generate API clients or server stubs for REST API *". It is an open source project which allows generation of API client libraries (SDK generation), server stubs, and documentation automatically from an OpenAPI Specification.

apiDocjs and Swagger Codegen can be categorized as "API" tools.

apiDocjs and Swagger Codegen are both open source tools. It seems that Swagger Codegen with 10.1K GitHub stars and 4.75K forks on GitHub has more adoption than apiDocjs with 7.71K GitHub stars and 1.36K GitHub forks.
