VVDocumenter-Xcode


What is this?

Writing document is so important for developing, but it is really painful with Xcode. Think about how much time you are wasting in pressing '*' or '/', and typing the parameters again and again. Now, you can find the method (or any code) you want to document to, and type in ///, the document will be generated for you and all params and return will be extracted into a beatiful Javadoc style. You can just fill the inline placeholders to finish your document。

Here is an image which can show what it exactly does.

How to use it?

Build the VVDocumenter-Xcode target in the Xcode project and the plug-in will automatically be installed in ~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode/Plug-ins. Relaunch Xcode and type in /// above any code you want to write a document to.

Xcode version?

This plug-in is developed and tested in Mac OSX 10.8.5 Xcode 4.6.3. It should work in all versions of Xcode 4. If you want to use it in Xcode 5 (DP3 or above), you have to make a liittle change in the plist. This is all what I can say under the NDA. And one more thing, the 'undo' is not working happily with Xcode 5.

The default deployment target is 10.8. If you want to use it in a earlier OS version, you should change OS X Deployment Target (in project info setting) to your system version.

Limitations

There are a set of code type I hope to support, but now I just finished some of them.

  • Objc Method (Done)
  • C Function (Done)
  • Macro (Done)
  • Property (Done)
  • Variable (Done)
  • Enum (To do)
  • Struct (To do)
  • Union (To do)

Now the docs for to-do types will be generated only with a basic description (which is the same as Property and Variable).

Known bugs

There is a bug when you want to do redo operation. See more here:
