L5 Swagger - OpenApi or Swagger Specification for your Laravel project made easy.

Swagger 2.0 for Laravel >=5.1

This package is a wrapper of Swagger-php and swagger-ui adapted to work with Laravel 5.


Laravel Swagger UI OpenAPI Spec compatibility L5-Swagger 6.0.x 3 3.0, 2.0 composer require "darkaonline/l5-swagger"

⚠️ !!! run composer require 'zircote/swagger-php:2.*' if you need old @SWG (SWAGGER annotations) support. !!! 5.8.x 3 3.0, 2.0 composer require "darkaonline/l5-swagger:5.8.*"

⚠️ !!! run composer require 'zircote/swagger-php:2.*' if you need old @SWG (SWAGGER annotations) support. !!! 5.7.x OR 5.6.x 3 3.0, 2.0 composer require "darkaonline/l5-swagger:5.7.*"

⚠️ !!! run composer require 'zircote/swagger-php:2.*' if you need old @SWG (SWAGGER annotations) support. !!! 5.6.x 3 2.0 composer require "darkaonline/l5-swagger:5.6.*" 5.5.x 3 2.0 composer require "darkaonline/l5-swagger:5.5.*" 5.4.x 3 2.0 composer require "darkaonline/l5-swagger:5.4.*" 5.4.x 2.2 1.1, 1.2, 2.0 composer require "darkaonline/l5-swagger:~4.0" 5.3.x 2.2 1.1, 1.2, 2.0 composer require "darkaonline/l5-swagger:~3.0" 5.2.x 2.2 1.1, 1.2, 2.0 composer require "darkaonline/l5-swagger:~3.0" 5.1.x 2.2 1.1, 1.2, 2.0 composer require "darkaonline/l5-swagger:~3.0"

You can publish L5-Swagger's config and view files into your project by running:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider "L5Swagger\L5SwaggerServiceProvider"

For Laravel >=5.5, no need to manually add L5SwaggerServiceProvider into config. It uses package auto discovery feature. Skip this if you are on >=5.5, if not:

Open your AppServiceProvider (located in app/Providers) and add this line in register function


or open your config/app.php and add this line in providers section


You can access your documentation at /api/documentation endpoint.

Swagger/OpenApi annotations and generating documentation

In order to generate the Swagger/OpenApi documentation for your API, Swagger offers a set of annotations to declare and manipulate the output. These annotations can be added in your controller, model or even a seperate file. An example of OpenApi annotations can be found here and Swagger annotations can be found here. For more info check out Swagger's "pet store" example or the Swagger OpenApi Specification.

After the annotiations have been added you can run php artisan l5-swagger:generate to generate the documentation. Alternatively, you can set L5_SWAGGER_GENERATE_ALWAYS to true in your .env file so that your documentation will automatically be generated. Make sure your settings in config/l5-swagger.php are complete.

I am still using Swagger @SWG annotation

If still using Swagger @SWG annotations in you project you should:

  • Explicitly require swagger-php version 2.* in your projects composer by running:
composer require 'zircote/swagger-php:2.*'
  • Set environment variable SWAGGER_VERSION to 2.0 in your .env file:

or in your config/l5-swagger.php:

'swagger_version' => env('SWAGGER_VERSION', '2.0'),

Using Swagger UI with Passport

The easiest way to build and test your Laravel-based API using Swagger-php is to use Passport's CreateFreshApiToken middleware. This middleware, built into Laravel's core, adds a cookie to all responses, and the cookie authenticates all subsequent requests through Passport's TokenGuard.

To get started, first publish L5-Swagger's config and view files into your own project:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider "L5Swagger\L5SwaggerServiceProvider"

Next, edit your config/l5-swagger.php configuration file. Locate the l5-swagger.routes.middleware section, and add the following middleware list to the api route:

'api' => [



One of the setting I find useful to enable is l5-swagger.generate_always, which will cause your Swagger doc to be regenerated each time you load the Swagger UI (not intended for production use!). All you have to do to enable this in your dev environment is add an environment variable to .env named L5_SWAGGER_GENERATE_ALWAYS and set it to true.

oauth2 + passport = Bearer <token>

Follow instruction in issue #57.

  • Run l5-swagger:publish-assets to publish swagger-ui to your public folder (public/vendor/l5-swagger)
  • Run l5-swagger:publish-views to publish views (resources/views/vendor/l5-swagger) - only for versions <= 4.0

For all versions

  • Run l5-swagger:generate to generate docs or set generate_always param to true in your config or .env file


The actual Swagger spec is beyond the scope of this package. All L5-Swagger does is package up swagger-php and swagger-ui in a Laravel-friendly fashion, and tries to make it easy to serve. For info on how to use swagger-php look here. For good examples of swagger-php in action look here.
