ANN: Documentation Insight Donation Program for Open Source Projects

Written by Baoquan Zuo on . Posted in News

Updated: DevJet Software Donation Program

It is said that every programmer would like to read documentation but they don’t like writing documentation themselves ūüôā

Many open source projects lack of documentation. Personally I have used several open source projects but it often happens that I can’t understand the exact usage of an API (such as a class/method/property) so that I have to stop to go through the entire framework to guess it. ¬†It is not doubtful that a well documented project will make users much easier to understand and use the project.

As the leading code documentation solution in Delphi world, DevJet Software would like to do something that could make our community better. If you are the owner/major committer of a qualified open source project in Delphi, you may join our Donation program just like the following excellent projects:

Hello, everyone!

We are very happy to announce the Our mission is to provide some modern & robust application frameworks and productivity utilities to simplify and boost your daily software development.

At present, we are still working on the open source spring4d project and preparing for the next release. You are welcome to give us any feedback. Another good news is, Alex, who is the author of the DeHL project, and I have decided to merge the DeHL project to spring4d and join forces to build the best framework for our Delphi community.

There are so many things in our to-do list so we need your voice. Please feel free to give a vote. Our official forum is here.

While developing the spring4d project we have made the following two interesting productivity products:

1. Documentation Insight

Provides a WYSIWYG plugin to view and edit xml documentation in the IDE.

2. Rename It!

Help you quickly rename an unit and update its references in the project group.

We are about to release the first beta of the Documentation Insight. Here are some snapshots:

> Reading Mode

Provides visual representation of documentation while exploring a source code file.  At the moment, only xml style documentation is supported.

> Editing Mode

With Documentation Insight, it is extremely easy to edit xml style documentation. You must love it once you have a try.

You should get the basic ideas from the snapshots. Please leave us a message if you are interested in it.
