A collection of Sphinx extensions

Project description

Rusty is a collection of extensions (directives and roles) for Sphinx documentation framework. While the extensions are somewhat compatible with docutils, the usage of Sphinx is currently required.


At the moment, the Rusty contains the extensions listed beneath. Ideas for new extension can been suggested in BitBucket


Include data from excelsheets into documentation.


Generates list from the selected set of role entires, written into document.


Include shell scripts into documentation: comments as documentation and commands as literal blocks.


Similar to rolelist directive. The main difference is the capability to create list based on regular expression rule.


Similar functionality to csv-table - one of the docutils directives: read data from XML/HTML file and convert it to RST-table based on given query and iterator. Requires BeautifulSoup -module.


The easiest way to install the package is to use easy_install:

easy_install -U rusty

Alternative method is to download the package manually, extract it and install it using traditional methods:

sudo python install


Documentation provides further information and examples how to use the module. There exists two resources:
