I had a few minutes spare this morning so I rushed out a summary video of how MetaDocs is looking after the jam (apologies for lack of polish, I didn't have time to plan it out fully): https://youtu.be/kKppU0zcXjM


  • reading clang's AST from JSON into C structures, deduplicating repeated nodes
  • converting that into a more convenient structure for navigating symbols and their attached documentation comments
  • starting to autogenerate a markdown-like syntax for symbols and attaching the documentation text
  • evaluating constant expressions from the AST for enum values

Still to finish:

  • representing primitive types in the same way as custom types
  • finalising binary and JSON outputs
  • complete example translating to a final HTML
  • library methods to assist with references between documentation and symbols
  • proper scoping of types
