Build Status Total Downloads Latest Stable Version

The LaraSwag package allows you to generate a decent documentation for your APIs.


First, open a command console, enter your project directory and execute the following command to download the latest version of this bundle (still in beta, for a stable version look here):

composer require zquintana/lara-swag dev-master

Then add the service provider to your app config:


To install the vendor assets like configurations and templates run:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="ZQuintana\LaraSwag\Provider\LaraSwagProvider::class"

To browse your documentation with Swagger UI, register the routes in config/routing/lara_swag.php. To make this easier after you run the vendor:publish command you can add the following to your routes config file:

Route::group(['prefix' => 'api'], function () {
    require_once('lara_swag.php'); // use routes/lara_swag.php if you're using Laravel pre 5.3

What does this bundle?

It generates you a swagger documentation from your Laravel app thanks to Describers. Each of these Describers extract infos from various sources. For instance, one extract data from SwaggerPHP annotations, one from your routes, etc.

If you configured the routes above, you can browse your documentation at http://example.org/api/docs.

Use the bundle

You can configure globally your documentation in the config (take a look at the Swagger specification to know the fields available):


return [
    'documentation' => [
        'info' => [
            'title'       => 'My App',
            'description' => 'This is an awesome app!',
            'version'     => '1.0.0',            

To document your routes, you can use annotations in your controllers:

namespace App\Controllers;

use App\Models\User;
use App\Models\Reward;
use ZQuintana\LaraSwag\Annotation\Model;
use Swagger\Annotations as SWG;

class UserController
     * @SWG\Response(
     *     response=200,
     *     description="Returns the rewards of an user",
     *     @SWG\Schema(
     *         type="array",
     *         @Model(type=Reward::class, groups={"full"})
     *     )
     * )
     * @SWG\Parameter(
     *     name="order",
     *     in="query",
     *     type="string",
     *     description="The field used to order rewards"
     * )
     * @SWG\Tag(name="rewards")
    public function fetchUserRewardsAction(User $user)
        // ...
