I’ve been asked to help develop an API Reference Guide to support the SDK for an iOS application. The initial thought is that I could use the documentation within the code to create the content of the guide. In this setup, I would be able to write the documentation within the code. This ensures that both the finished document and the code would make sense and would remain in line with each other.
The problems are that I am completely unfamiliar with iOS code. I also don’t know how best to work with the developers on this. Should I have access to the code or should I submit the documentation as simple text files? And most importantly, how do I pull the text from the code into a publishable document?
Any thoughts or ideas on this would be more than welcome.
