A way to convert any Python module to a doctest ready doc string.

Project description

mod2doctest is a module that converts a python module to a doctest compatible docstring.

It’s kind of like taking a python script, pasting it into an interactive interpreter and then copying the output back into a docstring.

However, mod2doctest has many convenience to make this process easier like:

  • Providing #> and #| comments: #> prints to both your docstring and stdout and #| print just to your docstring (which will show up as text in a sphinx generated webpage)

  • adding ellipse markers for memory id / trace back

  • Cleaning up / formatting your docstring for sphinx inclusion

  • and a couple of other things, too.
