QuHelp is a command-line program that scans a directory with HTML formatted text files and builds a help site using that directory's content and a template. A default template is included, but any template can be specified. QuHelp adds a nice expandable tree view of the help site's contents, a navigator, permalinks, and other useful stuff for browsing the help site.
xslui is an XSLT applet to display Web pages with a modularized XML file in Web browsers. This applet can design page layout by arranging square blocks called "areas". Thus it is very easy to display layouts like horizontal columns. This layout feature can also separate descriptions of an area's arrangement and contents, even in different files. This feature provides Web pages with modularization and sharing of their parts. In addition, xslui has data operating elements with the xsldo library, which can operate on XML data in the same or other XML files as the display data. This feature provides separation of views and data.
Pipadoc extracts extracts special comments out of source files or plaintext files and let one define rules how to bring them into proper order. This is somewhat similar to Literate Programming, but it puts the emphasis back to the code, since the source is not extracted from a given "literate text", but the documentation is extracted from the source and then the structure of the generated documentation is defined by the programmer. Pipadoc is programming language and documentation system agnostic, all it requires is that the programming language has some kind of line or block comments in one can place doc statements. It provides a plugin system where one can extend functionality. Some plugins for asciidoc, index generation, and verbatim code sections are provided.
phpdocr will download, prettify, and output PHP documentation for the function or class that is supplied on the command-line, much like perldoc does for Perl and ri does for Ruby. Unless you explicitly tell it not to, phpdocr will also cache the documentation locally for fast retrieval in the future.
The Isotrol DocGen BOUML plugout is a practical tool to update the OpenUP-based documentation of your project dynamically. DocGen extracts texts and diagrams from a BOUML project and inserts them in an OpenOffice.org Writer document. It's preconfigured with a generic project template and three definition files for Analysis, Design, and Architecture OpenUP-based documents. You can also insert predefined tables and link external images to embed them into the document. You can define your own template and file definitions. It's as easy as writing an OpenOffice.org Writer document and designing your own page format, cover, index page, headings styles, variables, etc. Afterwards, you create an XML file pointing to the parts of the BOUML project with the contents.
MkDoc is a C and C++ code documentation tool. It parse complex code and still produces clear documentation for developers and library users. Unlike most code generation tools, it does not simply write generated code documentation with pieces of user text inside. Instead it handles plain documentation files with sections and other constructs (like Texinfo or LaTeX) and inserts pieces of generated code documentation on request. Thus it does not enforce any way of structuring your document. It has been designed to parse advanced C++ constructs including class inheritance, template specialization, and template instantiation. XHTML, Texinfo, LaTeX, and DocBook output formats are supported.
zpub is a server to collaboratively work on DocBook-based documentation. Editors modify the XML sources with their preferred editor and submit their changes via Subversion. zpub renders the files centrally to various output formats, optionally notifies other editors, provides an archive of all previous revisions of the document, and supports a simple sign-off workflow. The documentation and user interface is currently only available in German.
Thot takes as input text in a wiki-like format and outputs results for different formats: HTML, Latex, DocBook, and PDF. Although delivered with only one input language (Dokuwiki format), Thot is very versatile and easy to extend. For example, the initial version allows you to embed a document description from different entities: source language, GraphViz DOT graphs, Latex math, etc.
