Enh rqst for DoxyPressApp: creating json from doxygen

Postby marlowa » Sat Mar 26 2016 8:55 am

I notice that when you use the tool for converting a doxygen config file to a doxypress json file, there are a few of things that could be improved:
    * it could start the file browser in the directory you are actually in. That seems a better default to me.
    * then you save the json file the default directory should be the same place that you picked up the doxygen config file.
    * the default name of the created json file should be based on the input filename (with the .cfg suffix removed).
    * The .json suffix should be added if not given by the user.

DoxyPressApp uses the last folder or path when a file browser window is opened. The path is then saved in the DoxyPressApp configuration files (a json file).

* then you save the json file the default directory should be the same place that you picked up the doxygen config file.
Resolved in next release (1.2.2 pending in April)

* the default name of the created json file should be based on the input filename
Resolved in next release (1.2.2 pending in April)

* the .json suffix should be added if not given by the user.
No extension is added on Unix platforms since file extensions are not handled natively by the OS dialog. We show the .json extension is automatically appended on Windows.

Please let us know if you have any questions about these items.

I tested this in version 1.2.4 and it still seems to be an issue. I converted doxygen.full.cfg and the json file was called doxygen.json, not doxygen.full.json.
