Welcome! This sphinx extension provides some useful extensions to the Sphinxs autodoc extension. Those are

  1. It creates a Table of Contents in the style of the autosummary extension with methods, classes, functions and attributes
  2. As you can include the __init__ method documentation for via the autoclass_content configuration value, we provide the autodata_content configuration value to include the documentation from the __call__ method
  3. You can exclude the string representation of specific objects. E.g. if you have a large dictionary using the not_document_data configuration value.

See the Documentation on Readthedocs for more details.

Installation

Simply install it via pip:

$ pip install autodocsumm

Or you install it via:

$ python setup.py install

from the source on GitHub.

Requirements

The package only requires Sphinx to be installed. It has been tested for versions higher than 1.3.

Quickstart

In order to activate the autodocsumm extension, you have to list it in your conf.py:

extensions = [
    'sphinx.ext.autodoc',
    ...,
    'autodocsumm',
]

Once this is done, you can use the :autosummary: option for autodoc directives to generate a table at the top, e.g.:

.. automodule:: my.awesome.module
    :autosummary:

Optionally, you can make autodocsumm active by default for all autodoc directives by adding in conf.py:

autodoc_default_options = {
    'autosummary': True,
}
