Project description

PDG role for Sphinx

PyPI package Supported Python versions GPLv3+ license GitPod Test coverage Codacy Badge CI status Checked with mypy status Spelling checked code style: prettier Code style: black Imports: isort

This package is a Sphinx extension that makes it easy to refer to PDF files of reviews and particle listings in the PDG.


Just install through PyPI with pip:

pip install sphinxcontrib-hep-pdgref

Next, in your Sphinx configuration file (, add "sphinxcontrib.hep.pdgref" to your extensions:

extensions = [
    # ...
    # ...


There are two roles, one for the particle listings and one for the review. These roles can be used as follows:



:pdg-review:`2014; Resonances`

:pdg-review:`Resonances; 2018; pp. 2-4, 7`

:pdg-review:`QCD; p5`

:pdg-review:`PDG2015; Quark Model; p.2`

which will render in the HTML pages as:


PDG2020, §Kinematics

PDG2014, §Resonances

PDG2018, §Resonances, pp.2-4,7

PDG2020, §QCD, p.5

PDG2015, §Quark Model, p.2

Note that the resulting links lead to the correct page as well!
