PySCard (smartcard Python wrapper) API documentation update

The documentation for the PySCard API was not updated since 2017 (5 years ago).

epydoc → pydoctor

The tool used to generate the HTML documentation is epydoc. The latest epydoc version was released in 2008 (14 years ago). This tool is no more available in Debian so I had to move to something else.

The (new) tool to replace epydoc is pydoctor. It is actively maintained and generates nicer HTML pages.

For example, nice changes are:

Previous documentation


The old (epydoc) documentation is still available online at

New documentation


The new API documentation is available at or from the project main documentation page

I guess I could improve the documentation. Feel free to report issues or suggest improvements.
