Enlighten Your APIs With Auto-Generated Documentation


October 15th, 2020


Enlighten is a package by Duilio Palacios and Jeff Ochoa that automatically documents your Laravel APIs:

There is no need to add endless docblocks to each API method, maintain dozens of read me files, or write extensive wikis to keep your APIs documented and in sync with your codebase!

Enlighten your Laravel applications with a beautiful documentation generated automatically from your test suites, by doing so, your documentation will always be updated with the current version of your app.

Enlighten provides a clean dashboard with helpful documentation about your requests, including session data, inputs, headers, and a response preview:

Under-the-hood Enlighten uses a separate database to generate results after running your test suite. This ensures that your documentation is up to date with the application’s test suite’s latest results.

You can learn more about this package, get full installation instructions, and view the source code on GitHub at StydeNet/enlighten.
