  1. .esdoc.json in the current directory
  2. .esdoc.js in the current directory
  3. esdoc property in package.json

export default class MyClass {
   * @param {number} a - this is a value.
   * @param {number} b - this is a value.
   * @return {number} result of the sum value.
  sum(a, b){
    return a + b;
