I'm trying to document my code using JSDOC3, that has a similar syntax to PHPDocumentator / Apigen. But is there a de-facto standard for Javascript inline documentation? I think Google Closure is the most complete (or so it seems), but what is widely adopted by IDEs and what most people expect to the docs to be?

  • I don't believe there is. Generally, I don't expect to see docblocks in JavaScript code. The only one I have seen used, though, is JSDoc. – Jonathan Rich May 2 '13 at 15:56
  • there really should be a proposal, like they did with PHPDoc, to try and standardize it. Google being 'big' is one step forward, but how many people would follow – pocesar May 2 '13 at 17:01
  • JSDuck works okay. Their docs are pretty poor, ironic, no? – user89948 May 2 '13 at 22:02

There's nothing which is as big as PHPDoc, but we're using airbnb, which already has over 2.000 stars and more than 350 forks on github, so it's used in a lot of projects.
