Welcome

This is the official documentation site for Laminas API Tools.

What are the API Tools?

Creating APIs for your applications shouldn't be hard.

Laminas API Tools is an API Builder, designed to simplify creating and maintaining useful, easy to consume, and well structured APIs. Regardless of your experience in API building, with the API Tools you can build APIs that enable mobile apps, developer communities, and any other consumer controlled access to your applications.

Laminas and Laminas API Tools

Lamians API Tools can be used to implement APIs in PHP. We developed the API Tools using Laminas MVC, but this doesn't mean you have to use this framework to develop your API. You can use the API Tools in any PHP application, using all the libraries and frameworks that you want.

System Requirements

To run the API Tools you need PHP 5.6 or greater.

Images in the documentation, and the API Tools Admin UI itself, still refer to Apigility. This is due to the fact that we only recently transitioned the project to its new home in the Laminas API Tools. Rest assured that the functionality remains the same.
