It is now used by content assist system of Eclipse Orion (detail)

Doctrine can be used in a web browser:

or in a Node.js application via the package manager:

npm install doctrine

simple example:

doctrine.parse(
    [
        "/**",
        " * This function comment is parsed by doctrine",
        " * @param {{ok:String}} userName",
        "*/"
    ].join('\n'), { unwrap: true });

and gets following information

{
    "description": "This function comment is parsed by doctrine",
    "tags": [
        {
            "title": "param",
            "description": null,
            "type": {
                "type": "RecordType",
                "fields": [
                    {
                        "type": "FieldType",
                        "key": "ok",
                        "value": {
                            "type": "NameExpression",
                            "name": "String"
                        }
                    }
                ]
            },
            "name": "userName"
        }
    ]
}

Options

doctrine.parse

We can pass options to doctrine.parse(comment, options).

{
    unwrap: boolean,          // default: false
    tags: [ string ] | null,  // default: null
    recoverable: boolean,     // default: false
    sloppy: boolean,          // default: false
    lineNumbers: boolean      // default: false
}
unwrap

When unwrap is true, doctrine attempt to unwrap comment specific string from a provided comment text. (removes /**, */ and *) For example, unwrap transforms

/**
 * @param use
 */

to

@param use

If a provided comment has these comment specific strings, you need to specify this unwrap option to true.

tags

When tags array is specified, doctrine only produce tags that is specified in this array. For example, if you specify [ 'param' ], doctrine only produces param tags. If null is specified, doctrine produces all tags that doctrine can recognize.

recoverable

When recoverable is true, doctrine becomes recoverable - When failing to parse jsdoc comment, doctrine recovers its state and attempt to continue parsing.

sloppy

When sloppy is true,

@param String [foo]

's [foo] is interpreted as a optional parameter, not interpreted as a name of this @param.

lineNumbers

When lineNumbers is true, parsed tags will include a lineNumber property indicating the line (relative to the start of the comment block) where each tag is located in the source. So, given the following comment:

/**
 * @param {String} foo
 * @return {number}
 */

The @param tag will have lineNumber: 1, and the @return tag will have lineNumber: 2.
