For simple JS it does a good job; for modern JS it provides a hinting mechanism.

Automagically generating documentation for dynamic languages is notoriously difficult--hinting is about the only way to do it. If the original JS isn't written with the hinting there's only so much documentation that can be generated via tools.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
