Autogeneration of DSL documentation for TextX

Project description

# TextX DSL autodocumentation tool A non-official TextX poc-project aiming to autogenerate documentation of DSL.

For testing the TextX integration, you will be required to install [from repository]( since the CLI extending is not available in 1.8.

## Files

  • []( example of DSL definition directly taken [from another project](

  • [out.html](out.html): the HTML output file (take a look to get a feeling of the current project achievements)

  • []( first implementation, absolutely bad, but few functions are worth saving

  • []( use some functions of to implement the same thing, but in a clearer manner

  • []( rendering of arpeggio (textx backend) grammars

[Current results](out.html) are encouraging.

## F(unny )eatures

  • support of docstrings (those at user classes level)

  • auto-generation of examples for regexes, and complete linking to [](


  • integrate complete example (either randomly or author-provided)

  • get a complete example with advanced features like references and other textx/arpeggio constructs

  • fix detection and handling of terminal for the description of rules

  • generate few examples for each documented rule (randomly, probably)

  • make the generation deterministic

  • humanize the phrasing (ex: when choice only on raw strings, avoid the bullet list and list them inline directly with an or for the last join: Type either _a_, _b_ or _c_)

  • integration into textx with [textx subcommands]( (see [doc](
