    ; Output

    {
        "1": 1
    }
    """

    name = 'example'
    allowed_domains = ('example.com',)
    start_urls = ('http://example.com/',)

    def parse(self, response):
        yield {
            'body_length': len(response.body)
        }


class ExampleSpider2(scrapy.Spider):
    """Some text.
    Hi!

    ; Info

    Some info.
    """

    name = 'example2'
    allowed_domains = ('example.com',)
    start_urls = ('http://example.com/',)

    def parse(self, response):
        yield {'success': True}

Settings:

SPIDERDOCS_SECTION_PROCESSORS = {
    'output': lambda name, content: '### {name}\n\n```json\n{content}\n```'.format(name=name, content=content),
    'info': lambda name, content: '{content}'.format(content=content)
}

Execute the command:

scrapy spiderdocs documented.spiders

Output:

# documented.spiders spiders

## example2 [documented.spiders.example.ExampleSpider2]

Some info.

## example [documented.spiders.example.ExampleSpider]

### Note

Some note.

### Output

```json
{
    "1": 1
}
```

Output options

stdout

scrapy spiderdocs <module.name> > somefile.md

-o (–output) option

scrapy spiderdocs <module.name> -o somefile.md

Settings

SPIDERDOCS_LOCATIONS = {
    'module.name': "somefile.md"
}

The setting used if no module specified.

scrapy spiderdocs

Docstring syntax

Use ; to create sections. For example:

; Section 1

Some text ...

; Section 2

Some text ...

Use ; end to close a section:

This text will not be added to the documentation.

; Section 1

Some text ...

; end

And this text also will be skipped.

Section processors

An example:

SPIDERDOCS_SECTION_PROCESSORS = {
    'output': lambda name, content: '### {name}\n\n```json\n{content}\n```'.format(name=name, content=content)
}
; Output

{
    "attr": "value"
}

will be translated into:

### Output

```json
{
    "attr": "value"
}
```

Scrapy settings

SPIDERDOCS_LOCATIONS: {<module>: <destination>}, default: {}.

SPIDERDOCS_SECTION_PROCESSORS: {<section_name>: <function(name, content) -> str>}, default: {}.

See usage examples above.
