Parse PHP classes and writes documentation to markdown files
phpdoc-md is a tool to generate nicely looking documentation from PHPDOC comments.
It allows to generate documentation markdown files easy to read and follow directly on github, gitlab or bitbucket sites.
You can see an example documentation generated by this tool in here
The intention of this tool is little bit different then standard PHPDocumentator. It focus on class instances and generates documentation from public methods at first place. Whenever class inherits from some other class the full interface from parent and child will be presented as part of it but inherited methods will be placed in separate section.
phpdoc-md is configured via single (php format)
.phpdoc-md file located in
your project root directory.
<?php return (object)[ 'rootNamespace' => 'Clean\PhpDocMd\Example', 'destDirectory' => 'docs', 'format' => 'github', 'classes' => [ '\Clean\PhpDocMd\Example\Basic', '\Clean\PhpDocMd\Example\Deep\Foo', '\Clean\PhpDocMd\Example\ExtendClass', '\Clean\PhpDocMd\Example\ExtendExtendClass', ], ];
