LGPL-licensed docs for Gtk-rs crates.

Structure

The docs for each library come from two files:

  • docs.rs is maintained manually, its entries take precedence over the vendor.rs file. PRs should normally target this file.

  • vendor.rs is generated by gir via simple transformation of the upstream docs found in GIR definitions. It serves as a fallback, the docs in it are tailored for C not Rust. This file should not be hand-edited.

You can generate it as follows:

cd gir
cargo run --release -- -c ../your-repo/Gir.toml -d ../gir-files/ -o ../your-repo/ -m doc

Cairo, which lacks GIR definitions, doesn't have a vendor.rs file.

Format

The format of the files is Markdown with extra metadata in HTML-like comments, which ties each entry to a specific Rust item. For example, this rustdoc snippet:

impl Button {
    /// Creates a new `Button` widget. To add a child widget to the button,
    /// use `Container::add`.
    ///
    /// # Returns
    ///
    /// The newly created `Button` widget.
    pub fn new() -> Button {

corresponds to this entry in gtk/vendor.md:

<!-- impl Button::fn new -->
Creates a new `Button` widget. To add a child widget to the button,
use `Container::add`.

# Returns

The newly created `Button` widget.
