Just a couple of suggestions. Make it a Makefile target and use a better theme like sphinxdoc :) --dnarvaez
Tool to be used
- <add your tool here>
Sugarlabs already has a sphinx instance, although it is a bit out of date: http://doc.sugarlabs.org/sphinx/
It also has a epydoc instance: http://doc.sugarlabs.org/epydocs/ (a.k.a api.sugarlabs.org)
I previously kept a Doxygen parsing of the Sugar toolkit, largely because I know how to make nice dependancy graphs with Doxygen. This currently is not hosted anywhere.
In general each documentation tool I have used has a slightly different style for comments to state things like '@param input_item Describes this input" and "@returns A XYZ object if successful; null on failure". So you should decide on the tool to use that can do everything you want before you formally go annotating the code base.

My quick and dirty solution for browsable docs are to just hop into the terminal on an XO and type pydoc -p 8080 and then point Browse to localhost:8080. Now that we have moved to webkit I'm really tempted to wrap this up as a little webkit activity to get to the dev docs with no geeking around ;)
