Tool to convert "DocC" archives, a format to document Swift frameworks and packages: Documenting a Swift Framework or Package, to a static HTML site.
Blog entry on the topic: DocC 📚 Archived and Analyzed.
First grab the package:
$ git clone https://github.com/DoccZz/docc2html.git $ cd docc2html
Then run it on your
$ swift run docc2html ~/Downloads/SlothCreator.doccarchive /tmp/SlothCreator/docs
This will create the static site in /tmp/SlothCreatorSite. The root documentation can be directly opened in the browser, e.g.
I think it is somewhat reasonable now. Templates (and Site.css) can be customized using external files. If willing to ajust the CSS to your own liking, it might be reasonable to use docc2html for something real.
Well, it's getting closer and the source code starts to be quite reasonable as well. Though you can still tell it started as a quick hack.
It's not ready for production yet, needs some more work.
This is a very quick hack/PoC full of quirks, and pretty incomplete. But it has working parts and we invite everyone to improve it and provide PRs. Or ignore it and come up with an own exporter base on the ideas (and possibly DocCArchive).
The tool is, as of today, just tested against the SlothCreator example.
It does not export tutorials yet, only the documents in the documentation folder.
It's not much yet, but a pretty good starting point.
We didn't try yet 🥸 But hope to be able to move the SwiftBlocksUI Documentation to that. Going to take some time until it's possible.
The GH action would need to:
Package.swiftversion to 5.5
xcodebuild -docthing to produce the DocC archives
docc2htmlon each of the archives

Support the "Application" RoleHeading, as reported in issue #20.
Looks like the HTML generator doesn't currently look at the value though.
