Functions

func GenMan

func GenMan(cmd *cobra.Command, header *GenManHeader, w io.Writer) error

GenMan will generate a man page for the given command and write it to w. The header argument may be nil, however obviously w may not.

Example
package main

import (
	"bytes"
	"fmt"

	"github.com/spf13/cobra"
	"github.com/spf13/cobra/doc"
)

func main() {
	cmd := &cobra.Command{
		Use:   "test",
		Short: "my test program",
	}
	header := &doc.GenManHeader{
		Title:   "MINE",
		Section: "3",
	}
	out := new(bytes.Buffer)
	cobra.CheckErr(doc.GenMan(cmd, header, out))
	fmt.Print(out.String())
}
Output:

func GenManTree

func GenManTree(cmd *cobra.Command, header *GenManHeader, dir string) error

GenManTree will generate a man page for this command and all descendants in the directory given. The header may be nil. This function may not work correctly if your command names have `-` in them. If you have `cmd` with two subcmds, `sub` and `sub-third`, and `sub` has a subcommand called `third` it is undefined which help output will be in the file `cmd-sub-third.1`.

Example
package main

import (
	"github.com/spf13/cobra"
	"github.com/spf13/cobra/doc"
)

func main() {
	cmd := &cobra.Command{
		Use:   "test",
		Short: "my test program",
	}
	header := &doc.GenManHeader{
		Title:   "MINE",
		Section: "3",
	}
	cobra.CheckErr(doc.GenManTree(cmd, header, "/tmp"))
}
Output:

func GenManTreeFromOpts

func GenManTreeFromOpts(cmd *cobra.Command, opts GenManTreeOptions) error

GenManTreeFromOpts generates a man page for the command and all descendants. The pages are written to the opts.Path directory.

func GenMarkdown

func GenMarkdown(cmd *cobra.Command, w io.Writer) error

GenMarkdown creates markdown output.

func GenMarkdownCustom

func GenMarkdownCustom(cmd *cobra.Command, w io.Writer, linkHandler func(string) string) error

GenMarkdownCustom creates custom markdown output.

func GenMarkdownTree

func GenMarkdownTree(cmd *cobra.Command, dir string) error

GenMarkdownTree will generate a markdown page for this command and all descendants in the directory given. The header may be nil. This function may not work correctly if your command names have `-` in them. If you have `cmd` with two subcmds, `sub` and `sub-third`, and `sub` has a subcommand called `third`, it is undefined which help output will be in the file `cmd-sub-third.1`.

func GenMarkdownTreeCustom

func GenMarkdownTreeCustom(cmd *cobra.Command, dir string, filePrepender, linkHandler func(string) string) error

GenMarkdownTreeCustom is the the same as GenMarkdownTree, but with custom filePrepender and linkHandler.

func GenReST

func GenReST(cmd *cobra.Command, w io.Writer) error

GenReST creates reStructured Text output.

func GenReSTCustom

func GenReSTCustom(cmd *cobra.Command, w io.Writer, linkHandler func(string, string) string) error

GenReSTCustom creates custom reStructured Text output.

func GenReSTTree

func GenReSTTree(cmd *cobra.Command, dir string) error

GenReSTTree will generate a ReST page for this command and all descendants in the directory given. This function may not work correctly if your command names have `-` in them. If you have `cmd` with two subcmds, `sub` and `sub-third`, and `sub` has a subcommand called `third`, it is undefined which help output will be in the file `cmd-sub-third.1`.

func GenReSTTreeCustom

func GenReSTTreeCustom(cmd *cobra.Command, dir string, filePrepender func(string) string, linkHandler func(string, string) string) error

GenReSTTreeCustom is the the same as GenReSTTree, but with custom filePrepender and linkHandler.

func GenYaml

func GenYaml(cmd *cobra.Command, w io.Writer) error

GenYaml creates yaml output.

func GenYamlCustom

func GenYamlCustom(cmd *cobra.Command, w io.Writer, linkHandler func(string) string) error

GenYamlCustom creates custom yaml output.

func GenYamlTree

func GenYamlTree(cmd *cobra.Command, dir string) error

GenYamlTree creates yaml structured ref files for this command and all descendants in the directory given. This function may not work correctly if your command names have `-` in them. If you have `cmd` with two subcmds, `sub` and `sub-third`, and `sub` has a subcommand called `third` it is undefined which help output will be in the file `cmd-sub-third.1`.

func GenYamlTreeCustom

func GenYamlTreeCustom(cmd *cobra.Command, dir string, filePrepender, linkHandler func(string) string) error

GenYamlTreeCustom creates yaml structured ref files.

Types

type GenManHeader

type GenManHeader struct {
	Title   string
	Section string
	Date    *time.Time

	Source string
	Manual string
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

GenManHeader is a lot like the .TH header at the start of man pages. These include the title, section, date, source, and manual. We will use the current time if Date is unset and will use "Auto generated by spf13/cobra" if the Source is unset.

type GenManTreeOptions

type GenManTreeOptions struct {
	Header           *GenManHeader
	Path             string
	CommandSeparator string
}

GenManTreeOptions is the options for generating the man pages. Used only in GenManTreeFromOpts.
