You can install the extension by:

  • running sudo pip install git+https://github.com/fabpot/sphinx-php.git;

  • cloning the project and add sensio to your path (with something like sys.path.insert(0, os.path.abspath('./path/to/sensio'))).

  • Arch Linux users can use the AUR package


Sphinx 1.8.5 (not older, not newer) is required.


You can use the following extensions in your conf.py file:

  • sensio.sphinx.configurationblock
  • sensio.sphinx.phpcode
  • sensio.sphinx.bestpractice

lexers['php'] = PhpLexer(startinline=True)
lexers['php-annotations'] = PhpLexer(startinline=True)

primary_domain = 'php'
