Sphinx generic nodes "todo like" extension

Project Description

A generic “todo like” nodes.

You love sphinx-ext-todo, and want more directives like this ?

This extension is for you.

install me with zc.buildout| pip | easy_install or clone and install|develop and add this to your

extensions = ['sphinxcontrib.gen_node']
gen_nodes = [('sample_one', True, True, False), ('sample_two', True, False, False),]


gen_nodes is a list of tuples which for each element you could now add in your documentation like you do with ‘sphinx-ext-todo’:

  • a new sample_one directive

    .. sample_one::  one thing
  • a new sample_onelist directive

    .. sample_onelist::

The sample_onelist will not appear in your documentation if you set False in your gen_nodes = [(‘sample_one’, False, False, False),… on the second argument.

options :

  • sample_one is the name of your new admonition, you’ll write

    .. sample_one:: A text here
  • The first (True|False) argument enables the list Plz note that the form of a “list directive is always ‘namenode’+list ie

    .. sample_onelist::
  • the second (True|False) renders gathering by doc subtitle

  • the third (True|False) renders a paragraph with filename and line number (like on todo-list) with sphinxext.todo
