Allows to serve Sphinx generated docs from django.

Project description

django4-docs allows to serve Sphinx generated docs directly from Django.

This is a fork of django-docs and was updated to work with Django 4.


  • Python 2.7-3.6 for Django 1.8 - 1.11

  • Python 3.4-3.6 for Django 2.0 or higher



  1. Install django-docs package:

    pip install django-docs
  2. Add docs to INSTALLED_APPS in

  3. Add docs.urls to

    urlpatterns = [
        url(r'^docs/', include('docs.urls')),
  4. Customize configuration:

    DOCS_ROOT = os.path.join(PROJECT_PATH, '../docs/_build/html')
    DOCS_ACCESS = 'staff'


DOCS_ROOT (required)

Absolute path to the root directory of html docs generated by Sphinx (just like STATIC_ROOT / MEDIA_ROOT settings).

DOCS_ACCESS (optional)

Docs access level (public by default). Possible values:

  • public - (default) docs are visible to everyone

  • login_required - docs are visible only to authenticated users

  • staff - docs are visible only to staff users (user.is_staff == True)

  • superuser - docs are visible only to superusers (user.is_superuser == True)
