Generate interactive OpenAPI documentation for your RESTful API using doctrine annotations.

For a full list of supported annotations, please have look at the OpenApi\Annotations namespace or the documentation website.


  • Compatible with the OpenAPI 3.0 specification.
  • Extracts information from code & existing phpdoc annotations.
  • Command-line interface available.
  • Documentation site with a getting started guide.
  • Exceptional error reporting (with hints, context)

Installation (with Composer)

composer require zircote/swagger-php

For cli usage from anywhere install swagger-php globally and make sure to place the ~/.composer/vendor/bin directory in your PATH so the openapi executable can be located by your system.

composer global require zircote/swagger-php


Add annotations to your php files.

 * @OA\Info(title="My First API", version="0.1")

 * @OA\Get(
 *     path="/api/resource.json",
 *     @OA\Response(response="200", description="An example resource")
 * )

Visit the Documentation website for the Getting started guide or look at the Examples directory for more examples.

Usage from php

Generate always-up-to-date documentation.

$openapi = \OpenApi\Generator::scan(['/path/to/project']);
header('Content-Type: application/x-yaml');
echo $openapi->toYaml();

Documentation of how to use the Generator class can be found in the Generator Migration guide.

Usage from the Command Line Interface

The openapi command line interface can be used to generate the documentation to a static yaml/json file.

./vendor/bin/openapi --help

Usage from the Deserializer

Generate the OpenApi annotation object from a json string, which makes it easier to manipulate objects programmatically.


use OpenApi\Serializer;

$serializer = new Serializer();
$openapi = $serializer->deserialize($jsonString, 'OpenApi\Annotations\OpenApi');
echo $openapi->toJson();

Usage from docker

Generate the swagger documentation to a static json file.

docker run -v "$PWD":/app -it tico/swagger-php --help
