v4 is out now! Featuring subgroups, easier sorting, and an automated upgrade command.

Scribe helps you generate API documentation for humans from your Laravel/Lumen/Dingo codebase. See a live example at


  • Useful output:
    • Pretty single-page HTML doc, with human-friendly text, code samples, and in-browser API tester ("Try It Out")
    • Generates Postman collection and OpenAPI spec
  • Smarts. Scribe can:
    • extract request parameter details from FormRequests or validation rules
    • safely call API endpoints to get sample responses
    • generate sample responses from Eloquent API Resources or Transformers
  • Customisable to different levels:
    • Customise the UI by adjusting text, ordering, examples, or change the UI itself
    • Add custom strategies to adjust how data is extracted
    • Statically define extra endpoints or information that isn't in your codebase

👋 Scribe helps you generate docs automatically, but if you really want to make friendly, maintainable and testable API docs, there's some more things you need to know. So I made a course for you.🤗

If you're coming from mpociot/laravel-apidoc-generator, first migrate to v3, then to v4.
