A Sphinx extension for rendering tables written in markdown

Project description


A Sphinx extension for rendering markdown tables.

Sphinx supports markdown via Recommonmark, which does not support tables. This extension provides them.

It renders markdown tables as HTML, as defined by python-markdown


pip install sphinx-markdown-tables


Quick version

extensions = [

Longer version

Sphinx needs to be configured to use markdown. First, you need recommonmark:

pip install recommonmark

In, configure source_parsers and source_suffix:

source_parsers = {
    '.md': 'recommonmark.parser.CommonMarkParser',

source_suffix = ['.rst', '.md']

Once Sphinx is configured appropriately, add sphinx_markdown_tables to extensions, like so:

extensions = [
