Class: YARD::Tags::ParseDirective

Inherits:
Directive
  • Object
show all
Defined in:
lib/yard/tags/directives.rb

Overview

Parses a block of code as if it were present in the source file at that location. This directive is useful if a class has dynamic meta-programmed behaviour that cannot be recognized by YARD.

You can specify the language of the code block using the types specification list. By default, the code language is “ruby”.

Examples:

Documenting dynamic module inclusion

class User  # includes "UserMixin" and extends "UserMixin::ClassMethods"
  # using the UserMixin.included callback.
  # @!parse include UserMixin
  # @!parse extend UserMixin::ClassMethods

end

Declaring a method as an attribute

# This should really be an attribute
# @!parse attr_reader :foo
def object; @parent.object end

Parsing C code

# @!parse [c]
#   void Init_Foo() {
#     rb_define_method(rb_cFoo, "method", method, 0);
#   }
