Doxity

0.4.0 now works with truffle! ????

Documentation Generator for Solidity

Demo Site

Uses gatsby to generate beautiful Solidity docs automatically via natspec.

Features

  • Automatically document contracts and methods from your code
  • Generate static HTML documentation websites that can be served directly from github
  • Fully customizable output using React
  • Minimalist UX from semantic-ui
  • Solidity Syntax highlighting
  • For each contract, options for whitelisting
    • Methods Documentation
    • ABI
    • Bytecode
    • Source Code

Installation

You can install @digix/doxity globally or locally in your project.

You'll also need solc 0.4.X (native until solc-js is supported) and libssl-dev installed on your machine.

# globally
npm install -g @digix/doxity
# or within project folder
npm install --save-dev @digix/doxity

Quickstart

  1. Have a project that contains natspecced* .sol contracts in a contracts directory, a package.json and README.md.
  2. doxity init will clone and set up the boilerplate gatsby project - files found in ./scripts/doxity
  3. doxity build will generate static HTML containing documentation to ./docs

Customize Markup and Publish it to github

  1. doxity develop will start a development server for editing gatsby project
  2. doxity compile will compile the contracts and update the contract data
  3. Ensure you have set linkPrefix in scripts/doxity/config.toml to be equal to your repo's name (e.g. /my-project)
  4. doxity publish will generate static HTML containing documentation to ./docs
  5. After publishing, you'll end up with a ./docs folder in your project which can be easily deployed
  6. Push it to master on github
  7. Go to your repo options, update 'Github Pages -> Set Source' to 'master branch /docs folder'
  8. Your documentation is live! Why not set up a Travis CI script to automate that whenever you commit?

* N.B. Currently Solidity doesn't support multiple @return values. Pass it a JSON object until it's patched. EG:

// natspec example - appears above each method
/**
@notice Get user's information from their EOA/Contract address
@dev Some more techncial explanation here
@param _account the EOA or contract address associated with the user
@param _anotherParam this is just an example of passing a second param
@return {
  "_feeaccount": "The contract address for storage fee payments",
  "_recastaccount": "The contract address for recasting tokens",
  "_assetcount": "The number of items associated with this account",
  "_assetstartindex": "The starting index of the user's items collection"
}
*/
function getUser(address _account) ...

Usage

.doxityrc

You can configure all of doxity's options using a .doxityrc file at the root of your project, with the following structure:

// .doxityrc
{
  // gatsby project source files directory
	"target": "scripts/doxity",
  // folder that contains the contracts you want to compile
	"src": "contracts/*",
  // folder in gatsby project to dump contract data
	"dir": "pages/docs",
  // folder to output the generated html (relative to project root)
	"out": "docs",
  // tarball for bootstrapping the gatsby project
  "source": "https://github.com/DigixGlobal/doxity-gatsby-starter-project/archive/9445d59056058159ce25d7cd1643039523718553.tar.gz",
  // for truffle projects, you can get deployed contract info
  // use https://github.com/DigixGlobal/doxity-gatsby-starter-project/archive/74df3b2b7a2484714540e4a9153a8f1d0f95a380.tar.gz for experimental interactive mode!
  "interaction": {
    "network": "2",
    "providerUrl": "https://morden.infura.io/sign_up_to_get_a_hash"
  },
  // option to whitelist various data
  "whitelist": {
    // the keyname `all` will be used for whitelist defaults
    "all": {
      "abi": true,
      "methods": true,
      "bytecode": false, // bytecode is false or undefined, it won't be shown
      "source": false // source is false or undefined, won't be shown
    },
    "DigixMath": {
      "source": true // source code uniquely shown for this contract, bytecode still hidden
    }
  }
}

Command Line Interface

You can also override these options by passing them to a command tool.

Unless you override them, default arguments will be used:

  • doxity init --target --source (with init, you can also pass any arguments to save them to .doxityrc)
  • doxity compile --target --src --dir
  • doxity develop --target
  • doxity publish --target --out

When passing to src in the CLI, wrap the filename in quotes; e.g. --src "contracts/*" - it is passed directly to solc.

Protip: If you are installing locally, you could add the following to your package.json:

"scripts" : {
  "docs:init": "node_modules/.bin/doxity init", // add your custom arguments (see API below)
  "docs:compile": "node_modules/.bin/doxity compile",
  "docs:develop": "node_modules/.bin/doxity develop",
  "docs:publish": "node_modules/.bin/doxity publish",
  "docs:build": "node_modules/.bin/doxity build", // compile + publish
  ...
},

You can then use npm run docs:[command] as a proxy for doxity [command].
