Tool to convert "DocC" archives, a format to document Swift frameworks and packages: Documenting a Swift Framework or Package, to a static HTML site.
Blog entry on the topic: DocC
First grab the package:
$ git clone https://github.com/DoccZz/docc2html.git $ cd docc2html
Then run it on your
$ swift run docc2html ~/Downloads/SlothCreator.doccarchive /tmp/SlothCreator/docs
This will create the static site in /tmp/SlothCreatorSite. The root documentation can be directly opened in the browser, e.g.
I think it is somewhat reasonable now. Templates (and Site.css) can be customized using external files. If willing to ajust the CSS to your own liking, it might be reasonable to use docc2html for something real.
Well, it's getting closer and the source code starts to be quite reasonable as well. Though you can still tell it started as a quick hack.
It's not ready for production yet, needs some more work.
This is a very quick hack/PoC full of quirks, and pretty incomplete. But it has working parts and we invite everyone to improve it and provide PRs. Or ignore it and come up with an own exporter base on the ideas (and possibly DocCArchive).
The tool is, as of today, just tested against the SlothCreator example.
It does not export tutorials yet, only the documents in the documentation folder.
It's not much yet, but a pretty good starting point.
- better API doc templates
- improve tutorial templates
- better CSS
- refactor code into a proper type and module for easier reuse
- drop dependency on Macro
- support Mustache templates in the filesystem! (for customization & faster testing)
- generate proper index.html
Using it on GitHub
We didn't try yet
The GH action would need to:
- patch the
Package.swiftversion to 5.5
- run the
xcodebuild -docthing to produce the DocC archives
docc2htmlon each of the archives
- publish the result to GH Pages
docc2html is brought to you by the Always Right Institute and ZeeZide. We like feedback, GitHub stars, cool contract work, presumably any form of praise you can think of.
