This is a library to help generate documentation from Clojure code to various kind of output formats. Its output can be customized, it can output to multiple files and search for namespace using regular expressions.

The currently supported output formats are:

  • Simple HTML
  • Markdown
  • Creole
  • DokuWiki Syntax


Normal use of clj-doc is done through two macros, gen-doc and gen-doc-to-file. The later being only a special case of the former with a filename as first argument. They can take an optional option map and a sequence of namespace identifiers that can be grouped with simple collections. To identify the required namespace, you can use symbols or regular expressions. Each regex is expanded into a sequence of namespace symbols.


Here's some examples to makes things clearer.

Simple Usage

Load clj-doc and generate documentation for the clj-doc.markups.markdown namespace using the default markup which is html-simple.

user> (use 'clj-doc)
user> (gen-doc clj-doc.markups.markdown)

More Complex Ones

Create one file for each one of clj-doc's markup namespaces in files test0.txt to test3.txt.

user> (gen-doc-to-file
        {:markup creole
         :separated-by namespace}

Creates two files, named test0.markdown and test1.markdown, one including all documentation for clj-doc without markdown and html-simple, the other with these two namespaces only.

user> (gen-doc-to-file
        {:markup markdown}
        [clj-doc.markups.markdown clj-doc.markups.html-simple])
