When making your ASDF system-file, add extra properties that Albert can understand to configure the behaviour of Albert. This is from the current version of Langband:
(asdf:defsystem :langband-engine :name "Langband Engine" :author "Stig E Sandoe" :version "0.1.7" :licence "GPL" :properties ((#:author-email . "firstname.lastname@example.org") (#:date . "Summer 2003") ((#:albert #:output-dir) . "albert-docs/") ((#:albert #:formats) . ("docbook")) ((#:albert #:docbook #:template) . "book") ((#:albert #:docbook #:bgcolor) . "white") ((#:albert #:docbook #:textcolor) . "black") ) :components ...)
The above preferences ensures that I get a Docbook 'book' as output with correct info for any headers/title-pages/etc. To see a list of understood properties, check this page.
To generate the documentation for langband I do:
* (in-package :cl-user) * (require :albert) * (load "langband-engine.asd") * (albert:document-systems :langband-engine) ;; changed from v0.2
Albert will generate DocBook documentation in your chosen directory, in this case albert-docs/. To generate HTML with jade you can do this:
jade -d ALBERT_PATH/data/albert.dsl -t sgml ALBERT_PATH/data/xml.dcl book.xml
For Langband this results is this reference documentation. The ALBERT_PATH for the Debian package is /usr/share/albert
IMPORTANT: To get decent-looking docs you need to do
2. Copy or link the
To generate documentation in a printable format (not as far in development as the HTML output), you can try these commands:
jade -d ALBERT_PATH/data/print-albert.dsl -t tex ALBERT_PATH/data/xml.dcl book.xml jadetex book.tex
Note: The actual docme.lisp script in langband is a bit more complicated and the latest version is here. It also provides examples of how to ignore some calls in the method-listings, as well as special handling of a few langband-specific macros. See the FAQ for more explanation for some of the extras.
