Documentation set generation tool in Xcode to generate documentation sets in the style of Apple Developer Documentation is necessary for a prosperous Apple developer community. The current HeaderDoc and Doxygen are both far from Apple standard.
HeaderDoc is obviously not favored by developers. Doxygen is better and even officially advocated by Apple, but still tedious to use and just can’t generate Apple standard documentations(see a nice example here). Doxyclean is very helpful in converting Doxygen output to resemble Apple Developer Documentation, but seems not capable to generate Xcode Documentation Sets. Following the work of Doxyclean, appledoc supplements some missing features like Xcode Documentation Set generation.
To sum up, there are several third-party tools doing the work that should be better done by Apple in Apple way. Even though they can do their best to generate very Apple like documentations, they can not offer the smooth integration in Xcode that is otherwise possible if it is done by Apple.
So, I’ve posted a bug report(Problem ID: 8193210) to request such a Documentation Set generation tool. If you also want it, please go to duplicate a bug report with following content:
