A simple program to auto generate API documentation for Python libraries.
A simple program (and library) to auto generate API documentation for Python libraries. All documentation text is parsed as Markdown and can be outputted as HTML or as plain text for console use. There are no special syntax rules, just pure Markdown.
While pdoc tries to stay consistent with documentation practices recommend by PEP 8 and PEP 257, pdoc also looks for documentation of representation in some places just as epydoc does. Namely, docstrings proceeding module level variables, class variables and instance variables in __init__ methods. This is done by traversing the ast of the source text.
