The new documentation is here

By Christophe Dujarric, on Nov 20, 2015

A little less than a month ago, we announced the upcoming test automation features.

That’s getting really close, and our first Beta users are enjoying it. And with it, we reviewed all the Blackfire’s doc to help you get the most out of the tool, depending on your use case.

Meet the new doc

What’s new? We have tried to clarify the structure of the doc, and make it easier to read for new-comers, but also for hardcore Blackfire users to find their way in detailed tweaks they can think of.

  • Getting Up and Running: all you need to make sure that your Blackfire stack will run on your environment
  • Cookbooks: That tells everything about how you will use Blackfire to understand the performance of your app, test and automate testing
  • Reference Guide: This section gives the full details about each Blackfire feature. Discover how to read the graph, work with References, use the PHP SDK, and more
  • Integrations: We worked out some native integrations with your everyday tools, making it quick and easy to add Blackfire to your workflow. From Docker to PHPUnit, Jenkins, or Slack, discover how easy and seamless using Blackfire becomes

Note: some sections may not yet be visible as in Beta.

What’s next with the doc?

We are also working on a section which will be dedicated to high level Use Cases, which may help you figure out what problems you can solve by using Blackfire, and then tell you how with the appropriate cookbook. This should be available in the coming weeks.

Let us know what you think, drop us a mail to!

Happy profiling,
