That's all. Happy coding!
There’s a lot of outdated information on the Web that leads new PHP users astray, propagating bad practices and insecure code. PHP: The Right Way is an easy-to-read, quick reference for PHP popular coding standards, links to authoritative tutorials around the Web and what the contributors consider to be best practices at the present time.
There is no canonical way to use PHP. This website aims to introduce new PHP developers to some topics which they may not discover until it is too late, and aims to give seasoned pros some fresh ideas on those topics they’ve been doing for years without ever reconsidering. This website will also not tell you which tools to use, but instead offer suggestions for multiple options, when possible explaining the differences in approach and use-case.
This is a living document and will continue to be updated with more helpful information and examples as they become available.
Daux.io is an documentation generator that uses a simple folder structure and Markdown files to create custom documentation on the fly. It helps you create great looking documentation in a developer friendly way.
PHPDocFill is a simple tool that allows you to easily complete your PHP script documentation in PHPDoc format
It was written with one simple purpose: filling up holes in your documentation. Have you ever needed to write PHP code so fast that you didn't have time to properly comment it? When you need to catch up, your only option is usually to open up every single PHP file and figure out by yourself what needs to be completed. On top of that, if your IDE doesn't support automatic creation of PHPDoc-like documentation comment blocks, you'll probably be annoyed by the syntax (/ ... ... /). PHPDocFill suppresses all these annoying steps and makes documenting your code a whole lot easier.
PHPDocFill comes as one unique PHP file that you place in a folder containing your PHP projects.
It scans the current folder and subfolders to find .php files and offers you to complete their documentation easily. PHPDocFill also allows you to generate a simple HTML manual, but bear in mind that when it comes to generating documentation, it will not fully replace powerful tools like PhpDocumentor. The manual that PHPDocFill generates consists of a simple index of the code elements (that you can select at the top of this page) along with their raw descriptions and tags if any. This version of PHPDocFill does not support the parsing and the proper presentation of tags. As stated before, you'll want to use a more advanced tool for better presentation.
Great Instant Documentation Search for webdeveloppers
When you want to build something for the web, it's surprisingly difficult to find out how you can implement your vision across all browsers and operating systems. You often need to search across various websites and blogs to learn how certain technologies can be used. It's kind of like a scavenger hunt, except it's not any fun.
This scavenger hunt is soon coming to an end. Google along with the W3C and several leading internet and technology companies just announced the alpha release of Web Platform Docs. Web Platform Docs is a community-driven site that aims to become the comprehensive and authoritative source for web developer documentation.
