With some satisfaction, I am happy to announce the arrival of a new documentation resource with Release 63, intended to assist programmers in getting the most out of EnsEMBL.
Using a custom filter and the open source tool Doxygen we now bring you a more pleasing perspective on the EnsEMBL API, with the following features:
- Search box – find the class you need fast
- Inherited methods – no more hunting for superclasses
- Class and dependency diagrams – see how the API is structured
- Multiple perspectives – view by class, namespace, directory or method
The new reference can be found through the website, so update your bookmarks and have a look around. You might see some artifacts in the automated documentation, but we will be aiming to remove these as part of an ongoing effort to standardise code comments. I hope you enjoy the advantages of this new modern view of our API.
