My  OpenSCAD_DocTest lib <https://github.com/runsun/openscad_doctest>   can
write formatted code to the console. It's, in fact, making use of OpenSCAD's
own features. So OpenSCAD can do some type of formatting.

Recently I recoded my lib to be able to generate html page. See  here
<http://doctestscad.runsun.info/doctest_tool_api.htm>   for example. The
webpage is dynamic and entirely generated by OpenSCAD, including HTML, CSS
and Javascript. The only post-process I need is to get rid of the unwanted
"ECHO: ". (see my  python code
for this purpose).

So it seems that OpenSCAD is already capable of doing what you want. 

BTW, can you give an example usage of generating openscad files in openscad
