API doc generator.

Project Description

This is ‘pydoctor’, an API documentation generator that works by static analysis.

It was written primarily to replace epydoc for the purposes of the Twisted project as epydoc has difficulties with zope.interface. If it happens to work for your code too, that’s a nice bonus at this stage :)

pydoctor puts a fair bit of effort into resolving imports and computing inheritance hierarchies and, as it aims at documenting Twisted, knows about zope.interface’s declaration API and can present information about which classes implement which interface, and vice versa.

The default HTML generator uses Nevow, which means that it requires Twisted too. It requires Nevow 0.9.18 or newer – your Nevow is new enough if “from nevow import page” succeeds.

There are some more notes in the doc/ subdirectory.
