This is my first post here..so hope I am following the
I am trying to create a Dash.app docset for biopython. Dash.app is a very
fast documentation browser , sadly for OSX alone.
One way to getting a docset built is to point it at sphinx documentation.
I am using the sphinx-apidoc to auto-generate the documentation ( ver
Sphinx can generate the documentation just fine for most of the source
tree. It has an issue with Restriction.py where it does not like cls.size.
The error is:
line 324, in __len__
AttributeError: type object 'RestrictionType' has no attribute 'size'
I could cheat..and change it to "return 1" in the code and I got the
documentation to build just fine.
I dont know why sphinx cares about that line to throw an error , or how to
get around that without cheating.
On a side note: The sphinx documentation , looks fine in a browser , but
the dash2doc app could not index it to yield a docset. The problem was
somehwere in the html , beautiful soup entered an infinite loop.
I could however use pydoctor to generate a docset. It seems to work OK..but
while sphinx doc created 15,804 index entries. The pydoctor index had only
around 5000 entries.
