Add a copy button to each of your code cells.

Project description


PyPI | Conda Version | Documentation

A small sphinx extension to add a "copy" button to code blocks.

See the sphinx-copybutton documentation for more details!


You can install sphinx-copybutton with pip:

pip install sphinx-copybutton

Or with conda via conda-forge:

conda install -c conda-forge sphinx-copybutton


In your configuration file, add sphinx_copybutton to your extensions list. E.g.:

extensions = [

When you build your site, your code blocks should now have little copy buttons to their right. Clicking the button will copy the code inside!


If you'd like to customize the look of the copy buttons, you can over-write any of the CSS rules specified in the Sphinx-CopyButton CSS file (link)


Development should principally adhere to the EBP Developer Conventions

Sphinx-Copybutton is hosted on the pypi repository. After a release - following the EBP release instructions - confirm that the new version of Sphinx-Copybutton is posted to pypi.
