How to integrate external scaladoc to quick documentation?



In my SBT project I have a dependency, consisting of a folder of .class files and a folder containing scaladoc.

Everything is fine for local objects:

However, quick documentation does not show the documentation for the imported objects:

I tested the same procedure in a java project, which did show the correct documentation.


Scala 2.11.5

Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong?

Scala plugin doesn't support generated scaladoc files. If you want to use quick documentation you need to attach sources of your library.

Hi Nikolay,


I was afraid that might be the case. Unfortunately the library is generated by whitebox macros and hence there are no sources :/

Nevertheless it is good to have a confirmation on this. Thanks for the reply.

Is there any chance that this will be included in future version?

It won't get lost and may be implemented at some point. Currently it doesn't look like a high priority one.
