rubydoc Technical Plan
In a nutshell, this is the vision for rubydoc is to create a
command line and online tool that allows for multi-lingual
access to ruby documentation for builtin and external modules.
More specifically, some of the project goals are to:
Create an online foum aimed at collecting user feedback,
experiences, and stories with ruby classes and modules (hosted
Extract the user comments and dump the collected data from the
online forum into a distributable medium so that comments are
available from the CLI (data probably stored in rd or XML).
A CLI that will let you, if you have a net connection, browse
the online rubydoc comments (probably SOAP).
rubydoc is a cross between perldoc and the PHP documentation at php.net.
rubydoc is set to evolve with the language and be defined
through its user community.
rubydoc will use the reflection API to make all methods
available for comment and user review.
The online forum will have user accounts and watches to allow
people to track comments and/or official documentation
