Supports

  • classes and interfaces
  • functions and methods (produces slightly different results)
  • namespaces (who phpdocs them really?)
  • class variables and constants (sweet!)

Installation

Use pear to install

pear channel-discover pear.avalanche123.com
pear install avalanche123/doxphp-alpha

Renderers

  • doxphp2sphinx
doxphp < test.php | doxphp2sphinx  > test.rst

test.rst:

.. php:function:: hello

   Greets the world

   :param string $world: - the world to greet

   :returns void:
  • doxphp2docco
doxphp2docco *.php

this creates docs directory in the current directory and populates it with html files.

test.html:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head>
  <title>test.php</title>
  <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <link rel="stylesheet" media="all" href="resources/doxphp.css" />
</head>
<body>
  <div id="container">
    <div id="background"></div>
        <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
      <thead>
        <tr>
          <th class="docs">
            <h1>test.php</h1>
          </th>
          <th class="code">

          </td>
          <td class="code">

                <span class="p">)</span>
              </pre>
            </div>
          </td>
        </tr>
      </tbody>
    </table>
