This packages contains the Packages sphinx extension, which provides directives to display packages installed on the host machine

Project description

This sphinx extension provides some directives to see what tools are available on the compiling machine. I wrote this because I was developing a sphinx extension calling system commands, and I wanted to be able to use is on readthedocs, but I did not know which tools were available there (and the Dockerfile is not precise enough).

What’s new?

See changelog.


This module is compatible with python 3 only.

See the end of list for a (quick and dirty) Debian package.

  • From sources:

  • From pip:

    pip install sphinxcontrib-packages
  • Quick and dirty Debian (and Ubuntu?) package

    This requires stdeb to be installed:

    python --command-packages=stdeb.command bdist_deb
    sudo dpkg -i deb_dist/python3-sphinxcontrib-packages-<VERSION>_all.deb


The documentation is available on readthedocs. You can build it using:

cd doc && make html
