This package is heavily inspired by the mtrajano/laravel-swagger and DarkaOnLine/L5-Swagger.
Usage is pretty similar to the mtrajano/laravel-swagger with the difference being:

  1. OAS3 support
  2. "Custom decorators" inspired by Nest.JS
  3. Automatic generation (assuming relevant configuration option is turned on)
  4. Inclusion of Swagger UI

I've spent a couple of hours making this package to suit my needs, and it does so far.
All I am trying to say is - I don't think I will be actively maintaining this package unless people will have interest in it.


This package developed on Laravel 8.11.2, but it might work on the previous releases.
All other requirements are inherited from the Laravel 8.


Install package through composer

composer require freedomcore/laravel-swagger

@Request() decorator

You can have only one @Request() decorator.

* You can also do this, first line will be "summary"
* And anything 1 * apart from the "summary" will count as "description"
* @Request({
*     summary: Title of the route,
*     description: This is a longer description for the route which will be visible once the panel is expanded,
*     tags: Authentication,Users
* })
public function someMethod(Request $request) {}

@Response() decorator

You can have multiple @Response decorators

* @Response({
*     code: 302
*     description: Redirect
* })
* @Response({
*     code: 400
*     description: Bad Request
* })
* @Response({
*     code: 500
*     description: Internal Server Error
* })
public function someMethod(Request $request) {}

Custom Validators

These validators are made purely for visual purposes, however, some of them can actually do validation


$rules = [
    'locale'        =>  'swagger_default:en_GB'


$rules = [
    'page'          =>  'swagger_default:1|swagger_min:1', // This will simply display the 'minimum' value in the documentation
    'page'          =>  'swagger_default:1|swagger_min:1:fail' // This will also fail if the `page` parameter will be less than 1


$rules = [
    'take'          =>  'swagger_default:1|swagger_min:1|swagger_max:50', // This will simply display the 'maximum' value in the documentation
    'take'          =>  'swagger_default:1|swagger_min:1|swagger_max:50:fail' // This will also fail if the `take` parameter will be greater than 50
