Marginalia v0.7.0

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

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

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

View the release notes for this version of Marginalia


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


To use Marginalia with Leiningen add the following code to the project's project.clj file, in the :dev-dependencies argument of the defproject function:

:dev-dependencies [lein-marginalia "0.7.0"]

After executing lein deps you can generate your complete source documentation with the command:

lein marg

Marginalia accepts other options as described in the Command Line section above.


The zi plugin supports Marginalia.

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


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




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.
