ApiDoc markdown creates a documentation from API descriptions in your source code.

It uses apidoc to convert inline documentation comments into json schema and later convert it to markdown.

Uses the apidoc-core library.

Documentation: apidocjs.com


$ npm install -g @mathieu_andrade/apidoc-markdown


Add some apidoc comments anywhere in your source code:

 * @api {get} /user/:id Request User information
 * @apiName GetUser
 * @apiGroup User
 * @apiParam {Number} id User's unique ID.
 * @apiSuccess {String} firstname Firstname of the User.
 * @apiSuccess {String} lastname  Lastname of the User.

Now generate the documentation from src/ into doc/.

$ apidoc-markdown -i src/ -o doc/
