Table of Contents

(TOC generated by verb using markdown-toc)

Install

This project requires Node.js ^8.9.0 || ^10.12.0. Install it using yarn or npm.
We highly recommend to use Yarn when you think to contribute to this project.

$ yarn add docks

CLI

For CLI usage install it globally or as devDependency.
To make it work, you should add <!-- docks-start --> and <!-- docks-end --> placeholders in your existing file or provide non existing file to --outfile flag. If no --outfile flag is given, then it will try to search those HTML comments on README.md and add the API documentation there.

docks # or docks --outfile docs/API.md 

Also, by default it collects documentation from all src/**/*.{js,jsx,ts,tsx} files, but you can give another glob pattern. For example run docks bar/*.js. Only block comments with a @public tag are collected and used to render the docs.

API

Generated using docks.

src/index.js

docks

Constructor that gives you methods.

Returns

.use

A plugin is a function that may extend the core functionality, or if it returns another function it is called for each block comment.

console.log(app.foobar); // => 123
 
// Or plugin that will be called on each block comment
app.use(() => (comment) => {
  comment.hoho = 'okey';
