Hi all, today we would like to show you how you can generate very nice API documentation of your projects with ApiGen.
Citation from http://apigen.org/:
ApiGen is the tool for creating professional API documentation from PHP source code, similar to discontinued phpDocumentor/phpDoc.
It works the same way as the current PhpDoc support. So, please install it and just verify in Tools > Options > PHP > ApiGen that NetBeans is able to detect it correctly (this should work for PEAR installation); if not, simply select the ApiGen script manually using the Browse button:
Next, verify that ApiGen properties of your project are also correct:
If everything is as you wish, just generate the API documentation:
NetBeans will inform you about the progress in the Output Window:
If the process is successful, your WWW browser is opened with the generated documentation:
