  • standalone – If True, this renderer is being used to create a standalone document

EXTENSION: ClassVar[str] = '.txt'#

The extension for the output files.

_is_hidden_cache: collections.OrderedDict[str, bool] = 'OrderedDict(...)'#

Cache for the is_hidden function: full_name -> bool.

property config: autodoc2.config.Config#

get_item(full_name: str) autodoc2.utils.ItemData | None[source]#

  • is it a dunder, i.e. __name__

format_args(args_info: autodoc2.utils.ARGS_TYPE, include_annotations: bool = True, ignore_self: None | str = None) str[source]#

Format the arguments of a function or method.

Returns “” if it should be parsed using the current parser.

abstract generate_summary(objects: list[autodoc2.utils.ItemData], alias: dict[str, str] | None = None) Iterable[str][source]#
