A clean, responsive documentation template theme for JSDoc 3.




See for a sample demo. 🚀


$ npm install docdash


Clone repository to your designated jsdoc template directory, then:

$ jsdoc entry-file.js -t path/to/docdash

Usage (npm)

In your projects package.json file add a new script:

"script": {
  "generate-docs": "node_modules/.bin/jsdoc -c jsdoc.json"

In your jsdoc.json file, add a template option.

"opts": {
  "template": "node_modules/docdash"

Sample jsdoc.json
