Project description


sphinxcontrib-httpexmpl enhances sphinxcontrib-httpdomain, a Sphinx domain extension for describing RESTful HTTP APIs in detail, with a simple call example directive. The new directive provided by this extension generates RESTful HTTP API call examples for different tools from a single HTTP request example.

The audience for this extension are developers and technical writes documenting their RESTful HTTP APIs. This extension has originally been developed for documenting plone.restapi.



This extension has been used at least in the following documentations:


Full documentation for end users can be found in the “docs” folder. It is also available online at


Add sphinxcontrib-httpexmpl into requirements of your product documentation and into the configuration file of your Sphinx documentation next to sphincontrib-httpdomain as follows:

extensions = ['sphinxcontrib.httpdomain', 'sphinxcontrib.httpexmpl']
