Markdown protocol buffer code generator

Project description

md-protobuf provides a generator for generating mardown documnetation files from google protocol buffer files.

Producing Code

md-protobuf provides a plugin for the protoc protocol buffer compiler (it ships with protocol buffers). This plugin tells protoc to produce a set of mardown output files, which contains documentation derived from the comments in the proto file.

First, obtain a copy of md-protobuf:

$ git clone
$ cd md-protobuf

Next, install md-protobuf:

$ python install

Finally, launch protoc and tell it to produce Md output:

$ protoc -I/path/to/your/proto/files --md_out=/output/path file1.proto file2.proto

You simply need to add --md_out to the arguments to protoc to get it to produce the Markdown output files.

Under the hood, protoc is looking for the program protoc-gen-md somewhere in your $PATH. You can modify $PATH in lieux of installing the package, if you desire.
