Generate reStructuredText documentations from your C++ sources

Project description

License GPLv3

DoxyCast is a documentation generator that helps you to generate beautiful documentations from the comments you have written in your source code.

DoxyCast reads the XML output from Doxygen and generates reStructuredText sources, which are parsed by Sphinx to generate the documentations.


To install DoxyCast, execute the following command:

pip install doxycast

Getting Started

Before getting started, make sure you have Doxygen and Sphinx installed. Then add the following to your

doxycast_config = {
    "projects": {
        "xml_dir": "path/to/xml",
        "output_dir": "path/to/output",
        "execute_doxygen": True,
            "INPUT = path/to/sources\n"
            # Other Doxygen options

        # "writer": your_custom_writer # Optional, default ``doxycast.writers.default``

Note: if you are using the default writer (not using any custom writer), you also need to install Breathe.
