Welcome to APIgnosis wiki! Here you can find more information about APIgnosis and how to use it.


What is this

A lot of Amiga developers prefer to work their code on other platforms, so to gain speed, stability and use better tools. But there is a lack of an application that will help them read the available documentation.

APIgnosis is an application for reading AutoDoc formatted files for the Amiga platform (AmigaOS 3 & 4, MorphOS, AROS). Those files include development information for various classes and methods, based on the SDK of each platform.

APIgnosis features

  • Select the documentation folder on your local machine
  • Parse selected document on the fly
  • Get list of available methods and info about the selected one
  • Runs on Windows, Linux and MacOS


By all means, APIgnosis is on early stage and not complete. There are a lot of staff need to be done, to make it a complete tool.

  • Need better parsing of AutoDoc files, especially for those that do not follow a standard, or have errors.
  • Need support for other file types, like PDF, Markdown and AmigaGuide etc.
  • GUI Enhancements (bookmarks, syntax highlighting, search), are in the pipeline
  • Automatic update

You can always propose new features or file bugs at Issues tracker
