git Changelog for Sphinx

Project description

This allows you to include a git changelog of your Sphinx documentation
within the documentation.

To use it, add 'sphinx_git' to 'extensions' in your Sphinx conf.py, and add:

.. git_changelog::

where you want the list of commits to appear. This will display 10 commits by
default; if you want a different number then pass in the revisions option:

.. git_changelog::
:revisions: 5

You can also use a range of commits with the rev-list option (man
git-rev-parse for details on the syntax):

.. git_changelog::
:rev-list: master..mybranch

You cannot currently apply a revisions filter to the rev-list output.

In some repositories, detailed messages (i.e. the bodies of commits) will look
better in a preformatted block (e.g. if they include code samples). You can
enable preformatted blocks using the detailed-message-pre option:

.. git_changelog:: :detailed-message-pre: True

The detailed-message-pre option can be combined with all other options.
