YUIDoc JavaScript documentation generator released

Today was the official release of the new YUIDoc JavaScript documentation generator. YUIDoc is a Node.js application that generates API documentation from comments in source, using a syntax similar to tools like Javadoc and Doxygen. YUIDoc is currently powering the API documentation for YUI and has been actively updated over the last year.

YUIDoc provides:
  • Live previews YUIDoc includes a standalone doc server, making it trivial to preview your docs as you write.
  • Modern markup YUIDoc’s generated documentation is an attractive, functional web application with real URLs and graceful fallbacks for spiders and other agents that can’t run JavaScript.
  • Wide language support YUIDoc was originally designed for the YUI project, but it is not tied to any particular library or programming language. You can use it with any language that supports /* */ comment blocks.
