A Python documentation utility.
A Python documentation utility designed to work with mkdocs.
Originally built for [gae-catnado](https://tylertrussell.github.io/gae-catnado), but could be useful for other projects, too.
Install via pip install catnado-docgen.
This is a work in progress! Expect bugs and unannounced changes.
Real changelog to follow.
#### In conjunction with mkdocs.yaml
To document a package in a project that has a mkdocs.yaml file, simply run: ` docgen build packagename mkdocs.yml --update-pages `
This scans packagename recursively, extracting Python docstrings and building Markdown source files from them.
The new Markdown files are written to a folder called docgen-api in your docs_dir (as specified in mkdocs.yml).
The –update-pages option updates the mkdocs.yml pages entry to contain a nested structure of packages and submodules under the heading docgen-api.
#### Without mkdocs.yml
If you want to do something else with the generated markdown documents, you can just specify an output directory like so:
docgen build packagename /my/path/here
This will write the Markdown source to the specified directory.
