Objective-c code Apple style documentation set generator. – tomaz/appledoc. I am trying to use appledoc to only generate HTML content. I do not want the docset created installed. I am using the following arguments: appledoc. I haven’t used ‘appledoc’, but from a quick look at the page you linked it appears that it’s an open-source command-line utility. So the first step will be to compile.

A few days ago in my work I had to develop an application, which included the documentation requirements of the code. This requirement is a good practice but is not the most fun of our work. AppleDoc is a tool that helps developers to generate Objective-C code documentation based appledocc comments with a special format in the top of each of the objects that make up the source code.
AppleDoc is able to read the code and generate visually appealing to the user documentation in HTML format, like Apple Xcode documentation, which is fully indexed and browsable. This tool is very useful for me, because virtually forces you through warnings i personally try to avoid warningsto comment on each of the attributes, methods and classes.
Using appledoc to generate documentation for project
At first we should clone de git repository with the following command:. Any of the alternatives that you use to install Genearte will be quite simple. Now we will see how to integrate this documentation to our projects. At first we should automate the generation process of documentation in HTML format.
For this, we will add to our project a new build target in order to keep the main target of the project separated of the documentation. Done, now apledoc only need to put a name, in my case i used Documentation and we add it to our project.
Now we need to customize how we are going to run the AppleDoc with the appropriate arguments. After you have added this we see how apledoc section is added, it is called Run Script and here is where we add the following script.
At this stage of the tutorial we will create the introduction to our html documentation.
Simply, we will create a file with a markdown format, that we will locate in the direction defined in the previous step under the label –index-desc. In this file, we write a brief introduction of the project and we will show this to the top of the documentation once we compile the target.
How to generate Programming Guides with Appledoc – Bootstragram
Probably in this part of the tutorial you intuit how to generate the documentation, but just in case is quite simple, you just have to change the run target of the application to the new documentation target and then press run to execute the target or just Cmd-b to compile. Once the compilation finished, we look in the path setted, and we will see the HTML files with the project documentation.
We can find the documentation in the established path in the configuration script defined in previous steps, under the label –index-descand you can easily open the browser and go surfing all classes. My documentation file is Guardian24 Documentation and as you can see, it shows every class of my project like it was native to Apple.
Another way to see this documentation is using external tools such as the very popular Dashwhich is a documentation offline browser with over languages. AppleDoc is a very useful and efficient alternative to document our code files and generate visually appealing files for a final user in HTML format.

Another feature, that is positive for me, is the fact that AppleDoc generates warnings in the code in the case that generste forget to document an object, so you never forget. Remember that a well-documented code streamlines development processes and integration with other team members. I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and be alert to the next, if you have questions or comments please let me know in the comments section. At first we should clone de git repository with the following command: Configuration the build phase to call AppleDoc Now we need to customize how we are going to run the AppleDoc with the appropriate arguments.
Once we are located there, we will add a Script Build Phase as follows: Overview of documentation At this stage of the tutorial we will create the introduction to our html documentation.
Where can we see the documentation created? Conclusion AppleDoc is a very useful and efficient alternative to document our code files and generate visually appealing files for a final user in HTML format. Guardian24 – iOS 16 Feb Switch de dispositivos de audio Alfred-WorkFlows 01 Apr
