This is a plugin for TypeDoc that merges the content of modules.
- If you want to document an entire application and not a library, you can specify all files that you want to have documented as entry points for TypeDoc and use this plugin to merge all modules into the project root removing the extra module layer.
- If you want to merge the content of some modules in the TypeDoc output, you can use this plugin and module annotations in your files to specify which modules should be combined.
This module can be installed using npm:
$ npm install typedoc-plugin-merge-modules --save-dev
TypeDoc automatically detects plugins installed via npm. After installation TypeDoc can be used normally and you can configure this plugin as described below.
When running TypeDoc with two module files
module2.ts as entry points produces the following result:

The following options are added to TypeDoc when the plugin is installed:

"module-category" in combination with module comments you should add the tag
@mergeTarget to the comment of the module whose comment should be used in the merge result.
