Automatic links from code examples to reference documentation.

Project description

Python versions Monthly downloads License: MIT Documentation

sphinx-codeautolink makes code examples clickable by inserting links from individual code elements to the corresponding reference documentation. We aim for a minimal setup assuming your examples are already valid Python.

For a live demo, see our online documentation on Read The Docs.


sphinx-codeautolink can be installed from the following sources:

$ pip install sphinx-codeautolink
# or, alternatively:
$ conda install -c conda-forge sphinx-codeautolink

Note that the library is in early development, so version pinning is advised. To enable sphinx-codeautolink, modify the extension list in Note that the extension name uses an underscore rather than a hyphen.

extensions = [

That’s it! Now your code examples are linked. For ways of concatenating multiple examples and setting default import statements among other things, have a look at the online documentation.
