Docco Fork - All JS, all the time

EDIT: My fork is no longer needed. The folks at docco saw the same thing and recently ported over the library to use highlight.js.

I love documentation generators for code. You know what I've talking about to - something which gives you a split screen of the code and the comments, side by side, for easy reading and scrolling. Like jasmine uses for their documentation:


Since I've mostly been working in JavaScript lately I've been looking for something to help document the packages I create easily. In comes docco.

A CoffeeScript + Python library to help generate good-looking documentation from comments in your code. One thing bothered me about this project - the python part. Docco uses a python library to highlight the syntax. There are plenty of decent syntax highlighters out there - why not use one written in a JavaScript flavor? So I forked docco and plugged in a JS highlighter. Pretty happy with the results.

You can check out the fork here.
