DYC is a CLI tool that helps with documenting your source code. It will help keep you alert for new methods that were added and not documented. Also supports to build a reusable docstring template. Just answer the prompt questions in your terminal to see the effect on your files.

  • Keep your Docstrings consistent.
  • Document your DIFF patch.
  • Ease of helping other developers understand your code.

All contributions are welcome. Please follow Development steps to get up and running, all PRs are welcome.

Tech

Installation

$ pip install document-your-code

Usage

This is intended to work on all programming languages. Kicking off with Python as a starter (Only default formatting added). You can override the default settings for python files and extend new formats in dyc.yaml at your root project. Refer to Example and Advanced

To run on all files in a project. Run

$ dyc start

To run on a Git Diff patch. Run

$  dyc diff

To have Docstrings prepended on a method while development. Run the following command

$ dyc diff --watch

Method Docstring Options

You can also Setup your own customized Docstring Method Formatting in dyc.yaml within formats key

break_after_open Do we add a new line after adding the open strings of a method? bool
break_after_docstring Do we add a new line after adding the docstring? bool
break_before_close Add a new line before closing docstrings on a method bool
words_per_line How many words do we add per docstring? int
within_scope Should the docstring be within the scope of the method or out? Just like JS Method docstrings bool

Example

$ cd myapp/
$ touch example.py
# example.py

def hello(name):
    return "Hello " + name
$ dyc start

Processing Methods

Do you want to document method hello? [y/N]: y

(hello) Method docstring : DYC Greets you

(name) Argument docstring : John Smith
(name) Argument type : str
## CONFIRM: MODIFY DOCSTRING BETWEEN START AND END LINES ONLY

def hello(name):
    ## START
    """
    DYC Greets you
    Parameters
    ----------
    str name: John Smith
    """
    ## END
    return "Hello " + name
~
~
~
$ cat example.py

def hello(name):
    """
    DYC Greets you
    Parameters
    ----------
    str name: John Smith
    """
    return "Hello " + name%

Watch diff flag.

Run in a terminal session where you have project initialized with Git and on unstaged file. This will not work (YET) on untracked files

$ dyc diff --watch

Then on a separate session

vim path/to/file
## Append or add

def auto_document(foo=False):
    return foo

Print output

$ git diff path/to/file

+
+def auto_document(foo=False):
+    """
+    <docstring>
+    Parameters
+    ----------
+    <type> foo: <arg docstring>
+    """
+    return foo

Advanced

$ cd myapp/
$ touch example.py
$ touch dyc.yaml
# example.py

def hello(name):
    return "Hello " + name
# dyc.yaml

formats:
  -
    extension: 'py'
    method:
      indent: 'tab'
      open: "'''"
      close: "'''"
      break_after_open: false
      break_before_close: false
    arguments:
      title: 'My Customized Title'
      underline: true
      add_type: false
      prefix: '@myAppParam'
$ dyc start

Processing Methods

Do you want to document method hello? [y/N]: y

(hello) Method docstring : Greeting Function

(name) Argument docstring : Human Name
## CONFIRM: MODIFY DOCSTRING BETWEEN START AND END LINES ONLY

def hello(name):
        ## START
        '''Greeting Function
