DocToDash

DocToDash converts documentation files (Rdoc Darkfish / YARD) into a classes and methods docset that can then be loaded into the docset viewing program: Dash.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'doc_to_dash'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install doc_to_dash

Usage

Generate YARD documentation (or darkfish rdoc). This below will output your Rails application's YARD documentation to doc/yard:

$ yardoc app/**/*.rb lib/**/*.rb --protected --private --embed-mixins --output-dir doc/yard/

Code

Require doc_to_dash

require 'doc_to_dash'

Tell doc_to_dash to generate a docset:

DocToDash::DocsetGenerator.new(:doc_input_path => '/web/myapp/doc/yard').run

This will create a docset in doc/DefaultDocset.docset then you just need to load the docset into Dash. The options above can be passed.
