* Package name : doxypypy Version : 0.8.8.6 Upstream Author : Eric W. Brown <https://github.com/Feneric> * URL : https://github.com/Feneric/doxypypy * License : GPL2+ Programming Lang: Python Description : More Pythonic version of doxypy, a Doxygen filter for Python For now Doxygen has limited support for Python. It recognizes Python comments, but otherwise treats the language as being more or less like Java. It doesn’t understand basic Python syntax constructs like docstrings, keyword arguments, generators, nested functions, decorators, or lambda expressions. It likewise doesn’t understand conventional constructs like doctests or ZOPE-style interfaces. It does however support inline filters that can be used to make input source code a little more like what it’s expecting. . The excellent doxypy makes it possible to embed Doxygen commands in Python docstrings, and have those docstrings converted to Doxygen-recognized comments on the fly per Doxygen’s regular input filtering process. It however does not address any of the other previously mentioned areas of difficulty. . This project started off as a fork of doxypy but quickly became quite distinct. It shares little (if any) of the same code at this point (but maintains the original license just in case). It is meant to support all the same command line options as doxypy, but handle additional Python syntax beyond docstrings. ------------- Two of my packages rely on doxypy, whose packages has been unmaintained for years. (and probably abandoned upstream). Doxypy is not=w targeted by an AUTORM process. I shall maintain doxypypy as one good replacement of the previous one.
