docme build status

Generates github compatible API documentation from your project's jsdocs and adds them to your Readme.

Installation

npm install docme

Usage

docme <readme> <docme-options> -- <jsdoc-options>

  Generates jsdocs for non-private members of the project in the current folder.
  It then updates the given README with the githubified version of the generated API docs.

  Note: overriding the jsdoc destination (-d, --destination) is not possible since docme will write files to a temp dir

OPTIONS:

  -l, --loglevel  level at which to log: silly|verbose|info|warn|error|silent -- default: info

  -h, --help      Print this help message.

EXAMPLES:

  Generate with default options and update README.md

    docme README.md

  Override [jsdocconf.json](http://usejsdoc.org/about-configuring-jsdoc.html):

    docme README.md -- --configure ./myconf.json

  Override loglevel and jsoc configuration:

    docme API.md --loglevel silly -- --configure ./myconf.json

Note: all functions that are not part of the public API should be marked as @private in order to exclude them from the docs generated by docme.

Since docme is using jsdoc under the hood, it is helpful to review its documentation. I highly recommend this page explaining how to specify @param types among other useful specs.

In order to make your docme APIs appear properly styled, please install the chrome extension or bookmarklet.
