Version 2.0.0, major release!

Here is the second major version of Antidoc.

This is a significant rewriting that brings two major features:

Generation of the PDF/HTML5 output

Until there, Antidoc was generating a plain text file you’d need to render in a more readable format through a web extension or after installing the Asciidoctor toolchain manually.

You can now choose to generate the PDF or the HTML version of the documentation at the end of the generation process.

Add-on’s mechanism

Antidoc now supports document-type add-ons. That means that anyone can create their type of document!

An add-on can implement its own:

  • user configuration window
  • parsing process
  • document composition

Antidoc handles the configuration recording and the document generation.

Version 1.2, UML Class Diagram and lots of improvements

This new version brings you lots of improvements and is going to interest LabVIEW developpers who are not using DQMH(T)framework. If you don’t want to read the change log, here is a sumary of what you get with this new version:

  • UML Class diagram representation
  • DQMH custom error listing
  • Multi-target support
  • A much better way to display information in the final document ; more useful content in less pages

Special thanks to Tatiana Boyé who contributed on the UML class diagram feature with her tool, classy Diagram Viewer.

Important note: Antidoc CLI needs to be updated to be compatible with this version

We also know that some of LabVIEW devs are expecting more from Antidoc. Unfortunately, this version is not going to bring you the following stuff yet:

  • Specific AF parsing
  • Support for any kind of referenced class
  • Lots of awesome features we have in mind but didn’t develop yet

Version 1.1, CLI tool available!

This new version brings you the latest part to fully automate your doc generation, the Antidoc CLI tool. With it, you will add the document generation as part of your CI/CD setup.

Antidoc CLI Tool in Action

This version is also the opportunity to continue to improve Antidoc. Among the different modification we made, we want to point you the following:

  • Extended character set is now supported with the last version of Asciidoc toolkit for LabVIEW
  • Tool GUI displays a progress bar that gives you information on the task running during the document generation process
  • There is an option to ask Antidoc to parse libraries contained in the project dependencies

Version 1.0 is released!

Here it is! We are glad to announce the release of the first official version of Antidoc.

We are firmly convinced that Antidoc will help you get a valuable and up to date documentation for your LabVIEW project.

Even if we want this tool to be useful to most LabVIEW developers, this first version addresses, mainly DQMH(R) framework users. That said, what works for DQMH(R) will work in the future for other frameworks.

What will you get with Antidoc?

Beautiful DQMH(R) relationship modules graph

This graph shows the different DQMH modules used in your project and how they share data using Requests and Broadcasts.

First Public Beta Release

We are happy to release the first public beta version of the tool.

Even if we know that many things are missing and bugs are obviously existing in this beta, we would like to let you know about the tool and the way it works.


Use LabVIEW content to generate valuable documentation that wil help maintain your projects and onboard new resources in the development team.

When we say “LabVIEW content” we not only speak about vi description, we also speak about how the different part of the code are linked together.

As a DQMH user, the tool has been primarily developed to get most information from this framework. We hope to support OPP and other frameworks in the future.

How to

You can generate the documentation of your LabVIEW project running the tool from Tools»Wovalab»AntiDoc»Generate Project Documentation… menu item.

Antidoc LabVIEW menu

After minimal configuration (1-Select the lvproj you want to document ; 2-Fill in document title, author name and e-mail address), you just have to hit the Generate documentation button (3).
