To use it, first of all you must register the extension within the Sphinx environment, adding the full name of the package to the extensions list in the file conf.py, for example:
# Add any Sphinx extension module names here, as strings. extensions = ['metapensiero.sphinx.autodoc_sa']
Without further settings it uses the default SQLAlchemy stringification strategy, but you can explicitly choose the right dialect by setting autodoc_sa_dialect to a string containing its fully qualified name, for example:
autodoc_sa_dialect = 'sqlalchemy.dialects.postgresql.dialect'
Otherwise, you can set it using the -D option of the sphinx-build command, e.g. adding -D autodoc_sa_dialect=my.own.dialect to the SPHINXOPTS of the Makefile created by sphinx-quickstart.
At this point, any documented SQLAlchemy core statement or ORM query, appearing either at the module level or as a class attribute, will be compiled into SQL, beautified using sqlparse.format() and added to the documentation wrapped within a code-block:: sql directive.
