a new way to do python code documentation
archives: a new way to do python code documentation
archives is a new style of python code documentation, as well as a linter for the documentation itself. It can help you ensure that your docstrings in your classes and functions stay up to date, and that they adequately explain their purpose, arguments, and return value.
- linter for docstrings (work in progress, but usable!)
- (coming soon) documentation generator
pip install archives
Run the Linter
# run archives (on itself!) archives archives/ # archives.py:846:0: F104 function 'path_empty' missing @ret tag # # Impossible! Perhaps your archives are incomplete? # 1 issues found. # list tags! archives --list-tag # @arg describe an argument of a function # @author denote the author of a module/class/function # @cc denote the complexity of a function # @desc describe a module/class/function # @link add a link to the generated documentation # @nodoc disable this module/class/function in the documentation # @nolint disable archives linting in this module/class/function # @note add a note to a module/class/function # @ret describe the return value of a function # @todo tag something as a todo # @warn add a warning to a module/class/function # list rules! archives --list-rules # disable rules! archives --disable M100 . # different formats for output! defaults to flake8 archives --format pylint archives.py
Tests can be run with tox!
# run tests tox # only one version of python tox -e py36
- more rules
- better system for multi-check rules
- more output formats
- potentially spell-checking inside desc?
- documentation generator
