DocBlocks got a lot of love recently in WordPress which is awesome for developers. In fact it’s beyond awesome. It opens the doors for so many awesome implementations of that data set, things like the newly offered WordPress.org Code Reference.
This information is insanely useful to anyone writing any bit of code for WordPress. We should be using these docs as guidelines. A lot.
What’s awesome about all of this focus on the docblocks themselves is that if you use an IDE that works with the data, you basically have the entire WordPress.org Code Reference built into your editor, with autocomplete! It’s fantastic!
Documentation is no small task to implement and maintain, but when you see it put to use like this it’s a great thing.
