Convert docs to docsets.

Project description

doc2dash is a MIT licensed extensible Documentation Set generator intended to be used with the dash API browser for OS X.

If you’ve never hear of dash, you’re missing out: Together with doc2dash it’s all your API documentation at your fingertips!

doc2dash is proudly written in Python 3 (but seems to work with 2.7 too at the moment).

Supported input types

Currently, the following source types are supported:

Feel free to help adding more!


The usage is a simple as:

$ doc2dash <docdir>

doc2dash will create a new directory called “<docdir>.docset” in the current directory containing a dash-compatible docset with a SQLite index.

When finished, the docset can be imported into dash.

Full usage:

usage: doc2dash [-h] [--force] [--name NAME] [--version] source

Convert docs to docsets.

positional arguments:
  source                Source directory containing API documentation in a
                        supported format.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --force, -f           force overwriting if destination already exists
  --name NAME, -n NAME  name docset explicitly
  --version             show program's version number and exit


The latest stable version can be always found on PyPI and can therefore be installed using a simple:

$ pip-3.2 install --user doc2dash

The easiest way known to me to get Python 3.2 on OS X is using homebrew:

$ brew install python3

The installation of pip should be as easy as:

$ curl | python3.2
