Project Description


docrepr renders Python docstrings in HTML. It is based on the sphinxify module developed by Tim Dumol for the Sage Notebook and the utils.inspector module developed for the Spyder IDE.


Video presentation @ SciPy 2015 by Carlos Cordoba:

Towards a Better Documentation System for Scientific Python


The module renders a dictionary as returned by IPython oinspect module into a full HTML page (with all assets) from an object’s docstring, by using the rich_repr function of its sphinxify submodule.

Example of use

import webbrowser

import docrepr                                # Set module options
from docrepr import sphinxify                 # html generator
from IPython.core.oinspect import Inspector   # oinfo generator

import numpy as np

oinfo = Inspector().info(np.sin)
oinfo['name'] = 'sin'
url = sphinxify.rich_repr(oinfo)
