Gramps and Gtk3 APIs into devhelp browser

Devhelp is a Gtk+/Gnome browser for API documentation; it works natively with gtk-doc (which is the API reference format for Gtk+/Gnome documentation).

How to include Gramps API into the Devhelp index.

Paths

According to base directories from freedesktop, the working paths could be:

$XDG_DATA_DIRS/devhelp/books
$XDG_DATA_DIRS/gtk-doc/html

Steps

1. Go to Gramps/docs folder

2. modify 'update_doc.py' for generating a devhelp file via 'devhelp' key for builder:

$ sphinx-build -b devhelp .  _build/devhelp

could be:

$ os.system(' ' '%(program)s -b devhelp . _build/devhelp' ' ' % {'program': sphinxCmd})

in python.

3. run 'update_doc.py':

e.g.,

$ cd docs
$ python3 update_doc.py 

4. copy the content of _build/devhelp directory into:

~/.local/share/devhelp/books

Need to use the same name for the devhelp file and the top directory (e.g., Gramps)

Updated python APIs

Give a try to:

   git clone https://github.com/lazka/pgi-docs-devhelp.git ~/.local/share/devhelp/books
   devhelp

To update:

   cd ~/.local/share/devhelp/books
   git pull
