CLOD is a Common Lisp doc-generator, similar to Albert, Cldoc and so on. It works by introspection rather than by parsing source files. It targets Emacs Org mode, which in turn can export it to HTML, PDF, DocBook, LaTeX or other formats.


  • easy export to any format supported by org mode, from within Emacs
  • automatic syntax highlighting of lisp source code examples in HTML.
  • automatic generation of 'UML'-like class diagrams as PNG files, using GraphViz
  • comes with emacs lisp code that allows you to edit doc-strings using org mode INSIDE common lisp buffers (uses emacs mmm-mode). Never leave Emacs again!

Comments are welcome.
