Sphinx theme for groundwork projects (Based on flask_theme)

Project description

This repository contains sphinx styles, which are use by most groundwork related projects. It is a derivative of Kenneth Reitz’s themes for his projects and of Mitsuhiko’s themes for Flask and Flask related projects. To use this style in your Sphinx documentation, follow this guide:

  1. Install the package using pip: pip install groundwork-sphinx-theme

  2. Add this to

    html_theme = 'groundwork'


The groundwork-sphinx-theme provides the following configuration parameters:

  • sidebar_width: Allows the user to set the sidebar width in pixels. Good for deeply nested TOCs (Default: 220x)
  • stickysidbar: If True it makes the sidebar always visible if pages get longer (Default: True)
  • stickysidbarscrollable: Makes the sticky sidebar scrollable in small browser windows (Default: False)
  • contribute: If True, a contribute-area with github-buttons is shown inside the sidebar
  • github_user: Used the for github follow button. E.g.: useblocks
  • github_fork: Used for the github fork buttons. E.g.: useblocks/groundwork

You can change their value inside the file of your sphinx project:

html_theme_options = {
    "sidebar_width": '240px',
    "stickysidebar": True,
    "stickysidebarscrollable": True,
    "contribute": True,
    "github_fork": "useblocks/groundwork",
    "github_user": "useblocks",
