API

/**
 * General component description.
 * You can even use the native Markdown here.
 * E.g.:
 * ```html
 * <MyComponent foo={541} />
 * ```
 */
export class MyComponent extends React.Component {
  static displayName = 'Official Component Name'
  static propTypes = {
      /**
       * Description of prop "foo".
       */
      foo: React.PropTypes.number,
      /**
       * Description of prop "bar" (a custom validation function).
       */
      bar: function(props, propName, componentName) {
        // ...
      },
      baz: React.PropTypes.oneOfType([
        React.PropTypes.number,
        React.PropTypes.string
      ]),
  }

  static defaultProps = {
      foo: 10000099999
  }

  render () {
      return (<div>Hello</div>);
  }
}

Because react-doc-generator uses react-docgen library, you can follow other examples here.
