phpDox is a documentation generator for PHP projects. This includes, but is not limited to, API documentation. The main focus is on enriching the generated documentation with additional details like code coverage, complexity information and more.

Requirements

Phar Installation

phpDox is shipping as a selfcontained executable phar archive. You can grab your copy from the releases section or install using phive:

phive install phpdox

You can now execute phpdox on the command line:

tools/phpdox --version

If everything worked out, you should get an output like this:

phpDox 0.10.1 - Copyright (C) 2010 - 2017 by Arne Blankerts and Contributors

Note: Some Linux distributions ship PHP with ext/suhosin and disabled phar execution. To make use of phpDox in such an environment, you need to enable phar execution by adding phar to the executor white list: suhosin.executor.include.whitelist="phar"

Composer Installation

Additionally, phpDox can be installed via composer:

composer require --dev theseer/phpdox 

You can now execute phpdox on the command line:

vendor/bin/phpdox --version

If everything worked out, you should get an output like this:

phpDox 0.10.1 - Copyright (C) 2010 - 2017 by Arne Blankerts and Contributors

Developer Installation

In case you want to go bleeding edge or hack on the source, you will have to clone this repository.

git clone git://github.com/theseer/phpdox.git
composer install

Usage Examples

You can run phpDox like this:

phpdox --help

As of version 0.4 phpDox requires an xml configuration file. In case a project you want to generate documentation for does not come with one, you can create it by calling

phpdox --skel > phpdox.xml.dist

Sample invocation to parse and generate output based on the default phpdox.xml configuration file

phpdox

or you can tell phpdox what configuration file to use by calling switch --file or in short

phpdox -f path/to/phpdox.xml
