Sphinx BlueBrain Theme is a Sphinx theme based on the excellent Material for MkDocs theme by Martin Donath (@squidfunk).

The original theme is licensed under the MIT license and is hosted on GitHub.

You can see examples (and the associated rst source) in the samples page.

Sphinx BlueBrain Theme is built through a combination of text replacement rules, HTML template overrides, a small amount of additional CSS and Javascript, and a python module which injects additional required context.


The development of this software was supported by funding to the Blue Brain Project, a research center of the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), from the Swiss government’s ETH Board of the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology.
