Powerful alternative to DMD's DDOC engine.
To use this package, run the following command in your project's root directory:
Put the following dependency into your project's dependences section:
DDOX documentation engine
This is an alternative documentation generator for programs written in the D programming language. It aims to be fully compatible with Ddoc (the documentation generator built into the D compiler). Additional features include:
- Advanced page-per-symbol layout based on Diet templates
- Full automatic cross-referencing
- Automatically generated index, search database and site map
- Filtering of symbols and modules based on their name and protection level
- Integrated web server for fast local documentation serving
- Directly embeddable into vibe.d applications
- Install dub
- Generate JSON for your project by adding the command line switches
-D -X -Xfdocs.jsonto your DMD command line (Note that you may need to clean up all the generated .html files afterwards)
- Check out ddox and run
dub buildfrom its root folder
You can filter the JSON file using
ddox filter <path_to_json>.
The following command will filter out all modules starting with "core.sync.", except those starting with "core.sync.mutex" or "core.sync.condition".
--in always takes precedence over
--ex here. Additionally, all members with a protection lower than public will be filtered out.
./ddox filter path/to/docs.json --ex core.sync. --in core.sync.mutex --in core.sync.condition --min-protection Public
Serving the docs on localhost
Then, simply run the following command and go to http://127.0.0.1:8080/
./ddox serve-html path/to/docs.json
Generating offline documentation
cp -r path/to/ddox/public destination/path ./ddox generate-html path/to/docs.json destination/path/public
Built-in support in DUB
Documentation for DUB projects can be built as simple as by running the following command within the project's directory:
dub build -b ddox
"-ddoxFilterArgs" field in
dub.sdl) can be used to customize the included contents.
Quickly serving the documentation on a local HTTP server, which is usually faster than writing out all HTML files to disk, is also possible:
dub run -b ddox
DDOX specific Ddoc macros
Apart from the standard set of predefined macros, DDOX defines a macro
DDOX_ROOT_DIR, which contains the relative path to the root of the documentation hierarchy (ending with a slash). It can be used to link to resources that reside in a fixed location within the same directory tree.
