1.0.0 • Public • Published


Resolves TypeDoc third-party symbols to canvas-ui classes, interfaces, enums, etc... TypeDoc can't normally resolve these symbols, so this plugin manually resolves them so that there can be a more seamless (albeit imperfect) documentation.

Mostly only used for canvas-ui integration libraries such as:

Known issues

The resolver doesn't work for @link tags (issue). This is also caused by @link tags generated by canvas-ui being reintroduced into the documentation due to extending a canvas-ui class; for example:

  • canvas-ui defines a function myFunction
  • canvas-ui defines a class MyClass with a property myProperty, where the property has a @link tag to myFunction in its docstring
  • canvas-ui-plugin defines a class MyExtendedClass which extends MyClass

Despite myProperty not being defined by the canvas-ui-plugin library, it is still included in the canvas-ui-plugin documentation because it's part of MyExtendedClass, which has a @link tag to canvas-ui's myFunction, which creates a broken link and a warning.
