Lumen Swagger

Generate API documentation with swag.



composer require benjamincrozat/lumen-swagger

Add the following line in your bootstrap/app.php:



If you wish to run this package on Laravel, you can easily do it. Just install it via Composer and you're done, thanks to its automatic package discovery.

composer require benjamincrozat/lumen-swagger


Once you annotated your models and controllers (see documentation here), using the command is pretty straightforward:

php artisan swagger

Generated at "/path/to/project/swagger.json"

You can also specify a custom path:

php artisan swagger --path whatever/documentation.json

Generated at "/path/to/project/whatever/documentation.json"

And even change the scanned location:

php artisan swagger --scan whatever

Generated at "/path/to/project/swagger.json"


In my own opinion, I think annotations are great for this use case, but messy. Writing API specs in your code isn't the cleanest thing to do. Your files quickly get unecessarly bloated. In Lumen Boilerplate, I opted for a single file config/swagger.php. Just run the following command to scan the config directory:

php artisan swagger --scan config
