After discussions at work on producing code documentation, I was introduced to http://www.apigen.org/.

I'm not quite sure how I've not seen it before, but it is very slick and certainly something I'm going to look at using int he future.

More information about what it does can be seen on their site, but it essentially reads the PHPdoc blocks in your code and outputs to a nice HTML page that you can publish.

The key part is just how easy it is, from the root of your project run

apigen generate --source src_folder --destination public/docs

You can easily add it into a script for jenkins or for local a development branch, add it into the post update/install commands of your composer.json.
