A documentation generation tool for the Ruby programming language
Yard is a Ruby tool to make generating documentation convenient to both write and read.

The main goal is to provide cleaner HTML output and a consistent way to add more meta-data about classes.

It enables the user to generate consistent, usable documentation that can be
 exported to a number of formats very easily, and also supports extending for
 custom Ruby constructs such as custom class level definitions.

Main features:

  • Yardoc Meta-tag Formatting
  • RDoc Formatting Compatibility
  • A Local Documentation Server
  • Custom Constructs and Extensibility
  • Template Customization
  • Raw Data Output
