"Defined In" section in crystal doc remains empty

Hey fellow crystalists,

I am generating documentation for my first shard, using crystal doc, and the “Defined In” section remains empty, as seen in this screenshot:


I thought maybe the presence of the --canonical-base-url flag, will fix that - but it did not.

I was unable to find help in the Documenting Code book page, and I have seen other shards that have their “Defined In” section filled.

Any tips?

This should usually work without issues or special configuration.

Is the source code available?

Yes, fresh from the oven:

Are you running crystal docs in the directory where the .git directory is located? The compiler runs git remote -v to know where to point source code.


Oh! That was the missing piece.
I ran crystal doc in the correct folder, and it had .git, but it was before I had a git remote.

Now it is fixed.

Thanks a lot!
