Create PDF formatted documentation for your PHP projects.

phpDoc2pdf uses the phpDocumentor/Reflection library to extract the classes, interfaces and traits from your project and generate a set of documentation similar to the one that phpDocumentor2 provides, but in PDF format.

You can see some examples on the docs folder.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes.


  1. Download the PHAR file directly from here.


Use the following command to generate the documentation:

php phpDoc2pdf.phar create <INPUT> <OUTPUT>

Replace <INPUT> with the PHP file or directory that you want to document and <OUTPUT> with the directory where the documentation will be saved.

Please note that the files you want to document have to be in UTF-8 format.
