Project Description

docserver is a lightweight, user-friendly documentation server in the style of PyPI and Read the Docs.


To install from PyPI:

$ pip install docserver

You can use docserver straight out of the box by running the module:

$ python -m docserver

And to show the help:

$ python -m docserver --help

The WSGI app itself is exposed as docserver.DocServer. If you want to use a bundle store path or frontpage template other than the default, you can set the environment variables DOCSERVER_STORE and DOCSERVER_TEMPLATE respectively.

docserver plays nice with Paste. Here’s an example paste configuration:

use = egg:Paste#urlmap
/ = docserver

use = egg:docserver
; Set 'store' to configure a custom bundle store.
; Set 'template' to configure a custom frontpage template.

use = egg:Paste#http
host =
port = 8080


If you want to use a skin other than the ugly default skin, there’s a marginally prettier one at extra/frontpage.html in the package.

The template engine used is pystache.
