  • Doxygen is very powerful documentation generator. All you need is to describe your C++ classes in code comments using special symbol agreement. Doxygen scans your project's file/folder tree and prepares a web-site like documentation. You can then host the docs generated onto a real web site.

  • Excellent online documentation generator. Easy and fast. This may be the standard for C# for sure!

  • This project is excellent for documenting C# source code. However, under Windows 10 build 10122 the Doxywizard button for displaying the Project Spartan (the new browser for win 10) does not work. In fact, project spartan apparently will not display doxygen output under any conditions. This might be a temporary bug in project spartan that Microsoft is in the process of fixing for the final release of windows 10. The Win 10 version of IE handles doxygen output just fine.

  • I agree with the statements of the others. This program is very well suited to perform a correct and well structured code documentation.

  • I have a number of small projects and wanted to do proper documentation, auto-generated documentation being new for me. I started with HeaderDoc, but got frustrated by several things, mostly configuration related. I took a whack at Doxygen, and following their tutorial had my documentation up and running within minutes -- Configuration a Breeze, Output Dazzling, and very Fast! Makes me want to write software just so I can document it!
