With the Awesome Theme, you can build readable, functional, and beautiful documentation websites. These features enhance the user experience:

Awesome code blocks

The code block shows the language of the code in a header. Each code block has a Copy button for easy copying. This theme enhances Sphinx's code-block directive with:

  • emphasize-added: highlight lines that should be added to code
  • emphasize-removed: highlight lines that should be removed from the code
  • emphasize-text: TEXT: highlight TEXT in the code block to emphasize placeholder text the user should replace.

Collapsible elements

Nested navigation links allow you to reach all pages from all other pages. You can make code object definitions, like methods, classes, or modules, collapsible as well, to focus on one item at a time.

Better headerlinks

Clicking the link icon after a header or caption automatically copies the URL to the clipboard.


If you have an Algolia DocSearch account for your documentation (it's free for open source projects), you can use DocSearch for a search-as-you-type experience with autocomplete.

Better keyboard navigation

Use the Tab key to quickly skip through all sections on the page. Use the Space key to expand or collapse items in the navigation menu or in code definitions.
