Sphinx domain for documenting all things cabal
The main reason to use this instead of adding object types to std domain
is the ability to generate nice 'Reference' page and also provide some meta
data for objects described with directives described here.
Most directives have at least following optional arguments
`:since: 1.23`
version of Cabal in which feature was added.
`:deprecated: 1.23`
Feature was deprecatead, and optionally since which version.
`:synopsis: Short desc`
Text used as short description on reference page.
Added directives
.. rst:directive:: .. cabal::pkg-section
Marks a package.cabal section, such as library or exectuble.
Needed to disambiguate fields with duplicate names, you can reset
the section to empty with `.. pkg-section:: None`.
Will try to guess synopsis from current section title unless explicitly
set with :synopsis:
.. rst::role:: pkg-section
References section added by `.. pkg-section`
.. rst:directive:: .. cabal::pkg-fields
Describes a package.cabal field.
Can have a :default: field. Will group on reference page under pkg-section
if set and parent header otherwise.
.. rst::role:: pkg-field
References field added by `.. pkg-field`, fields can be disambiguated
with section `:pkg-field:`section:field`.
.. rst:directive:: .. cabal::cfg-field
Describes a project.cabal field.
Can have multiple arguments, if arguments start with '-' then it is treated
as a cabal flag.
Can have a :default: field. Will group on reference page under pkg-section
if set and parent header otherwise.
.. rst::role:: cfg-field
References field added by `.. cfg-field`.
.. rst::role:: cfg-flag
References flag added by `.. cfg-field`.
All roles can be supplied with title as in standard sphinx references::
:pkg-field:`Build dependencies<build-depends>`
To be done:
- Directives for describing executables, their subcommands and flags.
These should act in a way similar to `.. std::option` directive, but with
extra meta. And should also end up in reference.
At least setup and 'new-build` subcommands should get special directvies
- Improve rendering of flags in `.. cfg-field::` directive. It should be
possible without copy-pasting code from sphinx.directives.ObjectDescription
by examining result of and inserting flags into
desc_content node.
Alternatively Or `.. flags::` sub-directive can be added which will be aware
of parent `.. cfg-field` directive.
- With same trick as above, render since and deprecated
info same way as standard object fields, and use fancy rendering only on
references page.
- Add 'since_version` config value to sphinx env and use it to decide if
version meta info should be rendered on reference page and thus reduce some
Can also be used to generate 'Whats new' reference page
