Sphinx (documentation generator)
|Initial release||March 21, 2008|
|Stable release||1.1.3 / March 10, 2012|
Sphinx is a documentation generator which converts reStructuredText files into HTML websites and other formats including PDF, EPub and man. It exploits the extensible nature of reStructuredText through a number of extensions (e.g. for autogenerating documentation from source code, writing mathematical notation or highlighting source code). The first public release, version 0.1.61611, was announced on March 21, 2008. It was developed for, and used extensively by, the Python project for documentation.
Since its introduction in 2008, Sphinx was adopted by many other important Python projects, such as Bazaar, SQLAlchemy, MayaVi, Sage, SciPy, Django and Pylons; it is also used for the Blender Python API documentation. In an effort to make maintenance of software documentation easier, the Read the Docs project was created. It automates the process of building and uploading Sphinx documentation after every commit. It is sponsored by the Python Software Foundation.
