Description

Little convenience tool to extract docstrings from a module or class and convert them to GitHub Flavoured Markdown:

https://help.github.com/articles/github-flavored-markdown

Its purpose is to quickly generate README.md files for small projects.

API

The interface consists of the following functions:

  • doctrim(docstring)
  • doc2md(docstring, title)

You can run this script from the command line like:

$ doc2md.py [-a] [--no-toc] [-t title] module-name [class-name] > README.md

Limitations

At the moment this is suited only for a very specific use case. It is hardly forseeable, if I will decide to improve on it in the near future.
