pip install sphinx_py3doc_enhanced_theme

Add this in your documentation’s

import sphinx_py3doc_enhanced_theme
html_theme = "sphinx_py3doc_enhanced_theme"
html_theme_path = [sphinx_py3doc_enhanced_theme.get_html_theme_path()]


No extra styling

This theme has some extra styling like different fonts, text shadows for headings, slightly different styling for inline code and code blocks.

To get the original styling Python 3 docs have add this in you

html_theme_options = {
    'githuburl': '',
    'bodyfont': '"Lucida Grande",Arial,sans-serif',
    'headfont': '"Lucida Grande",Arial,sans-serif',
    'codefont': 'monospace,sans-serif',
    'linkcolor': '#0072AA',
    'visitedlinkcolor': '#6363bb',
    'extrastyling': False,
pygments_style = 'friendly'

Custom favicon

To have a custom favicon create a theme directory near your and add this theme.conf in it:

inherit = sphinx_py3doc_enhanced_theme

Then create a favicon.png in the static directory.

And then edit your to have something like this:

import sphinx_py3doc_enhanced_theme
html_theme = "theme"
html_theme_path = [sphinx_py3doc_enhanced_theme.get_html_theme_path(), "."]

The final file structure should be like this:

└── theme
    ├── static
    │   └── favicon.png
    └── theme.conf

A bit of extra css

html_theme_options = {
    'appendcss': 'div.body code.descclassname { display: none }',
