WordPress API

WordPress self-documentation rendered using RDoc.

Generate your own

How to generate the documentation:

git clone git://
cd wordpressapi
gem install wpdoc
git clone git://
git clone git://
ln -s wordpress/wp-includes
ruby update_codex.rb
ruby doxydoc.rb

And your documentation will be in doc.

How it works

We create an RDoc::Parser that uses Doxygen, and then we use some magick to convert that into RDoc's internal format.


Why not just use Doxygen's HTML output? Or PhpDocumentor (which doesn't work)?

Because Doxygen's docs are neither pretty nor Ajaxy. With RDoc, we can use pretty generators like wpdoc ( ), our fork of the beautiful sdoc.
