  • sphinx
  • breathe
  • mkdocs
  • doxygen
  • The following mkdocs plugins: mkdocs-callouts mkdocs-click mkdocs-include-markdown-plugin mkdocs-material mkdocs-glightbox mkdocs-htmlproofer-plugin


git clone
cd binaryninja-api
mkdocs build
echo User documentation available in site/
cd api-docs
make html
echo API documentation available in build/html


Changing documentation for the API itself is fairly straight forward. Use doxygen style comment blocks in C++ and C, and restructured text blocks for python for the source. The user documentation is located in the api/docs/ folder and the API documentation is generated from the config in the api/api-docs folder.


When updating user documentation, the mkdocs serve feature is particularly helpful.
