Doxygen Docker Action

This GitHub Action will build doxygen docs from the specified doxyfile.

Use with an action such as actions-gh-pages to deploy to your project's GitHub pages site!

NOTE: If you are using dot/graphviz in your doxygen config to generate diagrams the only fonts installed, and hence can be used are those in the GNU FreeFont package (FreeSans, FreeMono and FreeSerif) or in any package listed in additional-packages.


Previously, versions of this action incremented as changes were made to the repo. However, this has now been changed so the tagged versions of this action match the doxygen versions they relate to. An edge tag has been created, tracking the version of doxygen available on the alpine edge tag.
