Update baredoc to dump docstrings like sys.doc #56902

merged 4 commits into from
May 7, 2020


Copy link

What does this PR do?

Improves the recently merged baredoc to support display of module and module.function docstrings like sys.doc. Leverages the same formatting util as sys.doc to generate the same output, only baredoc does not require the state or execution module to be loadable by salt. Thus, it is useful in situations when you need docs for modules which cannot be loaded on the current machine. Or to export docstrings in bulk.

What issues does this PR fix or reference?


Previous Behavior

Docstrings not suppored by baredoc

New Behavior

(zpool module is not loadable on this machine)

# salt-call --local baredoc.module_docs zpool
        Module for running ZFS zpool command
        :codeauthor:    Nitin Madhok <>, Jorge Schrauwen <>

@mchugh19 Hopefully it is not too late to fix the examples inside of docstrings:

def list_states(name=False, names_only=False):
        salt myminion baredoc.modules_and_args
def list_modules(name=False, names_only=False):
    .. code-block:: bash

        salt myminion baredoc.modules_and_args

          - present:
              name: null
              timespec: null
