Automatically generate API documentation for C language dialects

Project description


Generate C API documentation using libclang Python bindings.

For an example see the documentation.


Simply call clang-api-doc once per file you wish to document, e.g.

clang-api-doc -f 'include/mylib/first.h' -o ''
clang-api-doc -f 'include/mylib/second.h' -o ''

These files can then be used in any way you wish to create your final documentation, for example

  • transform to a different format using pandoc
  • write an file and use sphinx to create html docs


The clang-api-doc package is on PyPI, so you can use pip, poetry, or whatever you like to install it.
