Expand description

It generates an ID as follows:


  • If there is no name, NAME_ID is not generated.

  • If there is no extra, EXTRA is not generated.

  • name is the item’s name if available (it’s not for impl blocks for example).

  • extra is used for reexports: it contains the ID of the reexported item. It is used to allow to have items with the same name but different types to both appear in the generated JSON.
