marginalia

Ultra-lightweight literate programming[1] for Clojure and ClojureScript inspired by docco

Marginalia is a source code documentation tool that parses Clojure and ClojureScript code and outputs a side-by-side source view with appropriate comments and docstrings aligned.

To get a quick look at what the Marginalia output looks like, visit the official site.

Usage

Currently Marginalia can be used in a number of ways as described below.

Leiningen

http://github.com/gdeer81/lein-marginalia

To use Marginalia with Leiningen add the following code to the project's project.clj file:

With Leiningen 1.x, add [lein-marginalia "0.7.1"] to your project.clj's :dev-dependencies argument of the defproject function, then run lein deps. With Leiningen 2.x, add [[lein-marginalia "0.7.1"]] to the :plugins entry in either your project.clj file or your :user profile. See the lein-marginalia page for more details.

Once installed, you can generate your complete source documentation with the command:

lein marg <options> <files>

Marginalia accepts options as described below:

  • -d --dir Directory into which the documentation will be written (default docs)
  • -f --file File into which the documentation will be written (default uberdoc.html)
  • -n --name Project name (if not given will be taken from project.clj)
  • -v --version Project version (if not given will be taken from project.clj)
  • -D --desc Project description (if not given will be taken from project.clj)
  • -a --deps Project dependencies in the form <group1>:<artifact1>:<version1>;<group2>... (if not given will be taken from project.clj)
  • -c --css Additional css resources <resource1>;<resource2>;... (if not given will be taken from project.clj)
  • -j --js Additional javascript resources <jsfile1>;<jsfile2>;... (if not given will be taken from project.clj)
  • -m --multi Generate each namespace documentation as a separate file

Maven

The zi plugin supports Marginalia.

Add this code to the project's pom.xml file, and run the command mvn zi:marginalia.

    <plugin>
      <groupId>org.cloudhoist.plugin</groupId>
      <artifactId>zi</artifactId>
      <version>0.5.0</version>
      <configuration>
        <marginaliaTargetDirectory>autodoc/marginalia</marginaliaTargetDirectory>
      </configuration>
    </plugin>

And the following to the project's settings.xml file.

    <pluginGroups>
      <pluginGroup>org.cloudhoist.plugin</pluginGroup>
    </pluginGroups>

    <profiles>
      <profile>

Contributors and thanks

I would like to thank Zachary Kim for taking a pile of incoherent code and making it something worth using. Marginalia would be nothing without his hard work and vision.

I would also like to thank Justin Balthrop and Brenton Ashworth for their support and code contributions.

Notes

[1] While the phrase ultra-lightweight literate programming is used to describe Marginalia, it is in no way a tool for classical literate programming. That is, Marginalia is a linear documentation generator allowing no out-of-order reassembly of source.
