Autogenerates pretty Makefile help

Project description

Makefile help

This small package helps by generating colourful help for Makefiles.


I often store useful commands in Makefiles and then promptly forget them.


At the top of a Makefile add the following (assuming makefile-help is installed in the current virtual env):

help: # @@Utils@@ Display help and exit
	python -m makefile_help

Comment each command with a description and optionally a section using @@
The makefile_help script will then generate a help string.



pip install makefile-help
