I am writing from the offices of Enthought, in Austin Texas.
Enthought is funding development work on an API documentation
generation tool that they need, which they're releasing under a
BSD-style license. I'm here for a week of planning and initial
development. I will be completing the development part-time over the
next several months.
This is a great opportunity to make significant progress on the tool
that I've been talking and thinking about for some time. There is a
lot of good prior art that will be examined for this (Epydoc,
HappyDoc, others). The initial basis of the tool will PEP 258's
description of the Python Source Reader , but I'm sure there will
be additions and changes as time goes on. What form the final tool
takes is open to discussion right now, so feedback is welcome.
