Emmylua

To properly generate docs you should follow emmylua spec. The parser is capable of parsing most (not all) of the emmylua syntax. You can read the following doc which can give you the idea on how to properly write emmylua comments.

Usage

Using the CLI is simple just give it the path to the lua files; it will parse them and prints help doc onto stdout

lemmy-help /path/to/{first,second,third}.lua > doc/PLUGIN_NAME.txt

Cli
