Summary

In this chapter, we have discussed and practiced how to document the source code for PHP applications using NetBeans.

We have specially focused on the following topics:

  • PHPDoc standards and tags
  • Documenting PHP functions/methods, classes, and its variables
  • Documenting TODO tasks
  • Configuring ApiGen with NetBeans
  • API documentation using ApiGen

Finally, it was fun to use the auto-doc generator, and get the HTML documentation generated within a few seconds.

As we are going for the collaborative PHP development in our next chapter, such source documentation is required, in order to maintain a good practice within the development team. In the next chapter, we will learn to use the version control system (Git) from NetBeans.
