Twisted API Documentation

This page describes how to generate the API docs for the Twisted web site.

You will need a checkout of the latest release of Twisted.


  1. In a checkout of WebSite (<svn://>), in the trunk/vhosts/ directory, run:
    % pydoctor -c twisted.cfg -o twisted-doc-model
    % bzip2 twisted-doc-model 
    % svn commit twisted-doc-model.bz2

This will generate API documentation for the latest release of Twisted.

  1. If there has been a new release, edit twisted.cfg to point to that release.
  1. Now, ssh to pyramid.
% sudo su - www-data
% pwd
% svn up WebSite
% cd WebSite/vhosts/
% ./ newapi
  1. Look at the output in documents/current/newapi and make sure it looks alright, then replace the existing documentation:
% mkdir documents/<old version number>
% mv documents/current/api documents/<old version number>/
% mv documents/current/newapi documents/current/api
  1. If there have been useful pydoctor changes, make sure to update your pydoctor checkout/installation on both hosts before running it.
