Project description

The f5-sphinx-theme provides F5 Networks styling and layouts for projects built with Sphinx. This theme should not be used without modification for any project that doesn’t publish documentation to

Setup and Configuration

  1. pip install f5-sphinx-theme

  2. Update your project’s with the following settings:

    import f5_sphinx_theme
    html_theme = 'f5_sphinx_theme'
    html_sidebars = {'**': ['searchbox.html', 'localtoc.html', 'globaltoc.html']}
  3. (Optional) Set the html_theme_options{} dictionary. Supported options are shown below.

    html_theme_options = {
                            'site_name': '<desired site name>',           \\ DEFAULTS TO "CloudDocs home"
                            'next_prev_link': True or False,              \\ DEFAULTS TO FALSE
                            'html_last_updated_fmt': '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S', \\ REQUIRED FOR FEDERATED SEARCH, DO NOT CHANGE
                            # 'surveymonkey_url' = '',                    \\ DEFAULTS TO ''
                            # 'medallia_embed_url' = '',                  \\ DEFAULTS TO ''
                            # 'medallia_id' = '',                         \\ DEFAULTS TO "medallia_inline_survey"
                            # 'feedback_exclude_pages': ['page.html'],    \\ DEFAULTS TO ['index.html', 'search.html'], THE TABLE OF CONTENTS AND SEARCH PAGE
                            # 'base_url' = ''                             \\ DEFAULTS TO '/',
                            # 'sidebar_toc_maxdepth' = ''                 \\ DEFAULTS TO '', Override 'maxdepth' behavior on sidebar toc in layout.html. This is an integer value.
                            # 'hide_right_menu': True or False,           \\ DEFAULTS TO FALSE

    The base_url theme option is intended to allow customization of the root URL.

Version Selector

You can add a version selector to the navbar, as shown below:


The version selector is not enabled by default. To enable it, add the following settings to your docs/

html_theme_options = {
  'version_selector': True,

html_context = {
  'version_meta_path': 'uri/of/your/json/versions/file.json',
  'project_safe': re.sub('[^A-Za-z0-9]+', '', project)

The 'version_meta_path' refers to the location of a version.json file in the host S3 bucket. The versions displayed in the version selector are generated from this JSON file via an AJAX call. You only need to update one file to make the change across all versions. Generating the JSON is left up to the implementor (i.e., you), but it can be incorporated into a CI/CD process. Ideally, the JSON should be at the root of the project directory in S3, with versions being in subfolders as shown here:

  |   \--- <docs_html>
  |   \--- <docs_html>
      \--- <docs_html>

See the [test](/test) directory in this repo for a basic example.


See the project wiki for more information.


This project uses Travis-CI for CI/CD.
