doc2dash 0.3.1

Convert docs to docsets
doc2dash is a an extensible Documentation Set generator intended to be used with the dash API browser for OS X and UNIX.

It’s proudly written in Python 3.

Supported input types

Currently, the following source types are supported:

- Sphinx (nearly every single Python project out there)
- pydoctor (Twisted)

Feel free to help adding more!


The usage is a simple as:

 doc2dash < docdir >

doc2dash will create a new directory called “.docset” in the current directory containing a dash-compatible docset with a SQLite index.

When finished, the docset can be imported into dash.

Full usage:

usage: doc2dash [-h] [--force] [--name NAME] [--version] source

Convert docs to docsets.

positional arguments:
 source Source directory containing API documentation in a
 supported format.

optional arguments:
 -h, --help show this help message and exit
 --force, -f force overwriting if destination already exists
 --name NAME, -n NAME name docset explicitly
 --version show program's version number and exit


The latest stable version can be always found on PyPI and can therefore be installed using a simple:

 pip-3.2 install --user doc2dash

The easiest way known to me to get Python 3.2 on OS X is using homebrew:

 brew install python3

The installation of pip should be as easy as:

 curl | python3.2
