Build Status

Introduction

This Zend Framework module can be used with conjunction with Apigility in order to:

  • provide an object model of all captured documentation information, including:
    • All APIs available.
    • All services available in each API.
    • All operations available for each service.
    • All required/expected Accept and Content-Type request headers, and expected Content-Type response header, for each available operation.
    • All configured fields for each service.
  • provide a configurable MVC endpoint for returning documentation.
    • documentation will be delivered in both HTML or serialized JSON by default.
    • end-users may configure alternate/additional formats via content-negotiation.

This module accomplishes all the above use cases by providing an endpoint to connect to (/apigility/documentation[/:api[-v:version][/:service]]), using content-negotiation to provide both HTML and JSON representations.

Requirements

Please see the composer.json file.

Installation

Run the following composer command:

$ composer require zfcampus/zf-apigility-documentation

Alternately, manually add the following to your composer.json, in the require section:

"require": {
    "zfcampus/zf-apigility-documentation": "^1.2-dev"
}

And then run composer update to ensure the module is installed.

Finally, add the module name to your project's config/application.config.php under the modules key:

return [
    /* ... */
    'modules' => [
        /* ... */
        'ZF\Apigility\Documentation',
    ],
    /* ... */
];

zf-component-installer

If you use zf-component-installer, that plugin will install zf-apigility-documentation as a module for you.

Configuration

User Configuration

This module does not utilize any user configuration.

System Configuration

The following configuration is defined by the module to ensure operation within a Zend Framework 2 MVC application.

ZF2 Events

This module has no events or listeners.

ZF2 Services

View Helpers

The following list of view helpers assist in making API documentation models presentable in view scripts.

  • ZF\Apigility\Documentation\View\AgAcceptHeaders (a.k.a agAcceptHeaders) for making a list of Accept headers, escaped for HTML.
  • ZF\Apigility\Documentation\View\AgContentTypeHeaders (a.k.a agContentTypeHeaders) for making a list of Content-Type headers, escaped for HTML.
  • ZF\Apigility\Documentation\View\AgServicePath (a.k.a agServicePath) for making an HTML view representation of the route configuration of a service path.
  • ZF\Apigility\Documentation\View\AgStatusCodes (a.k.a agStatusCodes) for making an escaped list of status codes and their messages.
  • ZF\Apigility\Documentation\View\AgTransformDescription (a.k.a agTransformDescription) for transforming the written descriptions into Markdown.

Factories

ZF\Apigility\Documentation\ApiFactory

The ApiFactory service is capable of producing an object-graph representation of the desired API documentation that is requested. This object-graph will be composed of the following types:

  • ZF\Apigility\Documentation\Api: the root node of an API.
  • ZF\Apigility\Documentation\Services: an array of services in the API (a service can be one of a REST or RPC style service).
  • ZF\Apigility\Documentation\Operations: an array of operations in the service.
  • ZF\Apigility\Documentation\Fields: an array of fields for a service.
