Download the PHP package zircote/swagger-php without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package zircote/swagger-php. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.

Build Status Total Downloads


Generate interactive OpenAPI documentation for your RESTful API using doctrine annotations (optional as of version 4.8; if required the doctrine/annotations library must be installed in addition to swagger.php). or PHP attributes.

For a full list of supported annotations, please have look at the documentation website.


OpenAPI version support

swagger-php allows to generate specs either for OpenAPI 3.0.0 or OpenAPI 3.1.0. By default the spec will be in version 3.0.0. The command line option --version may be used to change this to 3.1.0.

Programmatically, the method Generator::setVersion() can be used to change the version.


swagger-php requires at least PHP 7.2 for annotations and PHP 8.1 for using attributes.

Installation (with Composer)

For cli usage from anywhere install swagger-php globally and make sure to place the ~/.composer/vendor/bin directory in your PATH so the openapi executable can be located by your system.


As of version 4.8 the doctrine annotations library is optional and no longer installed by default.

To use PHPDoc annotations this needs to be installed on top of swagger-php:

If your code uses PHPDoc annotations you will need to install this as well:


Add annotations to your php files.

Visit the Documentation website for the Getting started guide or look at the Examples directory for more examples.

Usage from php

Generate always-up-to-date documentation.

Documentation of how to use the Generator class can be found in the Generator reference.

Usage from the Command Line Interface

The openapi command line interface can be used to generate the documentation to a static yaml/json file.

Starting with version 4 the default analyser used on the command line is the new ReflectionAnalyser.

Using the --legacy flag (-l) the legacy TokenAnalyser can still be used.

Usage from the Deserializer

Generate the OpenApi annotation object from a json string, which makes it easier to manipulate objects programmatically.
