As far as I know, the only tool out there today is ApexLang. I'm sure that others have also had an idea on how to do this, myself included, so I'd expect future projects out there to eventually provide true documentation support.


[SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT] ApexDox for VS Code provides an editor-integrated documentation experience for Apex code! You can contextually stub comment blocks, preview your docs in seconds, and much more :-) Check in out here: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=PeterWeinberg.apexdox-vs-code&ssr=false

I created this project based on the original ApexDoc, however, its been completely rewritten in TypeScript (from Java), makes some (hoepful) improvements on some of the original's core logic, and takes great advantage of the VS Code ecosystem, where you're likely already writing all of your Apex code anyway. Suggestions and contributions are welcome!

  • If this is your project, please make sure to call that out in your post to avoid spam flags. Thank you!
