The idea is to make documenting D projects as simple as
possible, to the point where you don't need to do any work to
get documentation for your project other than adding it to the
DUB registry. Also, users can now browse documentation for DUB
projects even if the author was too lazy to generate it
themselves (assuming thy did include some documentation
Note that this is still in a very early stage, it was put
together in a very quick-and-dirty style by a person with
little webdev experience. Currently it just scans
`code.dlang.org`, looking for changes (yes, I know, this will
break as soon as code.dlang.org changes, I plan to raise
issue/s (PRs?) to the dub registry project so it can have a
full/stable API, but I wanted to get something to work *right
Code is here:
* ddocs.org: https://github.com/kiith-sa/ddocs.org
* hmod-dub: https://github.com/kiith-sa/hmod-dub
* harbored-mod: https://github.com/kiith-sa/harbored-mod
When optimizing harbored-mod by testing it on big D projects
(gtk-d, tango, vibe.d, etc.), I wrote a simple tool to
fetch/generate docs for any DUB project; I got carried away
and used that as base for a tool that checks for changes in
the DUB registry and generates docs for all projects.
That is pretty cool! I will put a link to it in all my project
I've noticed that License: "a$(WEB boost.org/LICENSE_1_0.txt,
Boost License 1.0)." gets rendered as "a".
Am I doing it wrong?
There's a bunch of macros used in many D projects not documented
in the language reference. They seem to be defined somewhere in
Phobos/Druntime (? - not sure), not really built in, but I add
them as I find them so compatibility is kept. Added $WEB to
harbored-mod now. There already also is LINK, LINK2, and HTTP...
and of course Markdown [link](http://link.org) - but that doesn't
work with plain DDoc generators.
The change can take a while to propagate to your packages as
ddocs.org waits a few days before regenerating docs for releases
that already have docs generated and <2 days for known branches
(~master) so it doesn't constantly regenerate docs for everything
- it is feasible now but won't be if the DUB registry gets bigger
as fast as I expect.
