Generate address space documentation HTML from compiled SystemRDL input.

For the command line tool, see the PeakRDL project.


Install from PyPi using pip:

An example of HTML output generated from a fictional SystemRDL register description: turboencabulator.rdl.


Pass the elaborated output of the SystemRDL Compiler into the exporter.

Assuming root is the elaborated top-level node, or an internal AddrmapNode:

from peakrdl_html import HTMLExporter

exporter = HTMLExporter()

exporter.export(root, "path/to/output")



Constructor for the HTML exporter class
