I am aware of the RDD and MDD output files for a given E+ run. It would be helpful from a programming POV to have a complete list of all the possible outputs that can be provided by E+, along with the associated E+ object for each output. Like the Input Data Dictionary (IDD) file...maybe an ODD file?

Here’s the script used to generate it:

It looks for stuff like this.

If you checkout the E+ repo and want to update the csv and markdown, do:

cd EnergyPlus
python /doc/tools/ /src/EnergyPlus SetupOutputVariables.csv

The script would need refactoring to be reach its full potential though, to map to actual idf objects (such as "Boiler:HotWater" for example)

See the SetupOutputVariables.csv file that ships with EP.
