This is a TypeScript exported class, function, type and documentation parser. It outputs everything needed to automatically generate documentation and better understand a project's public API. Information is extracted using TypeScript's Compiler API.

Usage

import * as readts from 'readts';

var parser = new readts.Parser();

// Read configuration used in the project we want to analyze.
var config = parser.parseConfig('tsconfig.json');

// Modify configuration as needed, for example to avoid writing compiler output to disk.
config.options.noEmit = true;

// Parse the project.
var tree = parser.parse(config);

The output is a list of ModuleSpec objects, each with exported classes and interfaces (ClassSpec), functions (FunctionSpec) and variables (IdentifierSpec). Types of variables and function parameters are parsed to TypeSpec objects, pointing to correct ClassSpec objects if applicable. This allows cross-linking types to their definitions in generated documentation.

See charto/docts for a documentation generator using this parser.
