#API Notation Syntax for Atom

This is a grammar for api notation, a simple notation I've been using for annotating module APIs in specs and other documents.


#From Command Line

code --install-extension rbdr.api-notation

#From GUI

#Open the Extension Manager from Palette Manager
  1. Press ⌘⇧P on OSX or ⌃⇧P on Windows/Linux to open the palette manager
  2. Look for `Install Ext4ensions
#Open the Package Manager from Preferences
  1. Go to Code -> Preferences -> Extensions menu item
#Install it
  1. Search for api-notation in the search bar
  2. Click Install


Open a .api file, or set it as your syntax.

#API Notation Reference

The most recent reference as of now is in this textt file, so check that to be sure. But here's a reproduction of the notation.

   + class property
   - instance property
  ~> listened events (socket)
  +> listened events (class/module)
  -> listened events (instance)
  <~ dispatched events (socket)
  <+ dispatched events(class/module)
  <- dispatched events (instance)
  :: class method
   # instance method

Other symbols
  => returns
->() callback return
[xx] optional
<xx> data type

Recommended order: class first, then sockets, then instance. Internally:
Properties, events, methods.

// Anything after two forward slashes is a comment

#How does it look like?
