# buidler-source-descriptor

# Quickstart

npm install buidler-source-descriptor

Add this to your buidler.config.js:

const { usePlugin } = require("@nomiclabs/buidler/config");

usePlugin("buidler-source-descriptor");

module.exports = {
  // All fields are optional,
  // path defaults to cache path
  // file defaults to ast-doc.json
  // ignores nothing by default
  astdocs: {
    path: "./ast-docs",
    file: "ast-doc.json",
    ignores: "test"
  }
  // ...
};
npx buidler compile

# What does it do

Parses the AST to generate (richer) documentation.

Data is serialized in a JSON blob, e.g.
