    Default Ext API - what's generates it?

    Ext API - what's generates it?


    Am I correct in thinking the API documentation is generated from the source files, like what JavaDoc dopes for Java?

    If so, what tool is it out of interest?

    Heh! Nice isn't it?

    Yes, it's generated from the source, and the tool is proprietary, and Jack has never leaked it out.

    I don't blame him, the API docs are one of the great differentiators of Ext. Jack doesn't want any competitors baing able to generate such a great UI for their docs.

    Yes. Perhaps he could offer a web service to subscribers where they could pass source code, and out would pop the API for their app. That would be sweet. I'd love to be able to document our huge Javascript client properly.

    Yea, I was just thinking the other day that an API repository for User Plugins and Extensions would be sweet.
