A markdown extension is provided for automatically documenting python code.

# A Top Level Module


# A Package

mkdocs integration

This site was generated using mkdocs and the following config:

site_name: jetblack-markdown

docs_dir: documentation
site_dir: docs

  - admonition
  - codehilite
  - jetblack_markdown.autodoc:
      class_from_init: true
      ignore_dunder: true
      ignore_private: true
      ignore_all: false
      prefer_docstring: true
      template_folder: null

    - css/custom.css


There are some configuration parameters.

  • class_from_init (bool, optional): If True use the docstring from the __init__ function for classes. Defaults to True.
  • ignore_dunder (bool, optional): If True ignore __XXX__ functions. Defaults to True.
  • ignore_private (bool, optional): If True ignore methods (those prefixed _XXX). Defaults to True.
  • ignore_all (bool): If True ignore the __all__ member.
  • prefer_docstring (bool): If true prefer the docstring.
  • template_folder(Optional[str], optional): Specify a custom template folder. The template "main.jinja2" will be rendered passing an obj parameter which is a jetblack.markdown.metadata.Descriptor


All the rendering is done with jinja2 templates. Start by copying the current templates from jetblack_markdown/templates and specify the template_folder in the mkdocs.yml.
