Code is documented inline with PDoc (http://pdoc.org/).

The generated HTML documentation can be found on the gh-pages branch or viewed online at (http://josh.github.com/wysihat/).


Several examples can be found under examples/ to get you started.


Tagged releases will be posted on the GitHub downloads section (http://github.com/josh/wysihat/downloads).

Building from source

You can build the latest version of WysiHat from source by running rake the root directory. The generated file will be saved to dist/wysihat.js. Ruby and the Rake gem are only required to build the project from source. It is not required to run the code.
