Project description

Build Status Code Coverage


This is a fork of sphinx-markdown-tables package that works with newer versions of the markdown package.


A Sphinx extension for rendering markdown tables.

It renders markdown tables as HTML, as defined by python-markdown


pip install dhubbard-sphinx-markdown-tables


Quick version

Add sphinx_markdown_tables to extensions in, like so:

extensions = [

Longer version

pip install recommonmark

In, configure source_parsers and source_suffix:

source_parsers = {
    '.md': 'recommonmark.parser.CommonMarkParser',

source_suffix = ['.rst', '.md']

Once Sphinx is configured appropriately, add sphinx_markdown_tables to extensions, like so:

extensions = [
