Hi Michael!

Nestled in the source distribution is the script that generates the new 
ChucK API Reference:

the script:

the output:

the current CKDoc API:

It can generate docs on a single type, a group of types, or a group of 
groups (the new ChucK API reference is the latter.) So far, only HTML 
output is implemented, but CKDoc has been structured to support 
additional formats (JSON, Markdown, text).

While it is possible to use CKDoc to generate documentation on any ChucK 
type (including chugins and user-defined classes), it is still early and 
there are some hard-coded output tailored to the ChucK website. However, 
we are planning to make CKDoc increasingly more general and customizable 
so that it can be easily used by anyone to publish API documentation for 
chugins/libraries (like LiCK; thank you Michael!). Please let us know 
how we can improve CKDoc moving forward!

(Also on the roadmap: a package manager for chuck...)
