• Wow, very nice. From what I can gather from their site PHPXref could be very handy, especially for those bigger, more involved projects. This should also help a lot if there is more than one coder working on the same project. I will download later today. Thanks for this.

    Knew you will like it. It is excellent way to study code, especially if it’s not yours. Or yours and older than three days. :)

  • Great dude. Thanks for sharing…I’m using similar kind of tool called Winsyntax.

  • @TechZoomIn

    Slightly different thing. :) Winsyntax is editor, while PHPXref is documentation generator.

    For editor I am more than content with Notepad++.

    Just wanted to say thank you for this suggestion.

    I was trying to go through some php code (i.e. code for very lightweight CMS, Leap (http://leap.gowondesigns.com/) – Try it out, very cool!). All the php code is in one file, without any indentation. But after a little time, I remembered your post here.

    Used PHPXref, and it generates very beautiful documentation about the code, with everything laid out very clearly.

    Thanks for this Rarst, you’ve made my day (and saved me some time)!

  • @JeeMan

    You are welcome. :) I think there is no better praise for a post than feedback that it solved issue easily and completely for someone.

    Bookmarked that CMS to take a look later [this decade].

    Thanks a bunch for this article Rarst, I read it like half a year back and now working on a project remembered it and found it again to point me at this great open-source tool.

    Best luck man!

  • @Tobey

    Glad it is of use to you (eventually). :)

    By the way you might like NetBeans IDE for PHP. I’ve been using it lately and it is also quite good with inline documentation in PHP files. Among other things.
