An RST directive for injecting a Towncrier-generated changelog draft containing fragments for the unreleased (next) project version

Project description

sphinxcontrib-towncrier @ PyPI GitHub Actions CI/CD build status — Python package Documentation Status @ RTD


An RST directive for injecting a Towncrier-generated changelog draft containing fragments for the unreleased (next) project version.

How to use this?

$ pip install sphinxcontrib-towncrier
extensions = ['sphinxcontrib.towncrier']

# Options: draft/sphinx-version/sphinx-release
towncrier_draft_autoversion_mode = 'draft'
towncrier_draft_include_empty = True
towncrier_draft_working_directory = PROJECT_ROOT_DIR
# Not yet supported:
# towncrier_draft_config_path = 'pyproject.toml'  # relative to cwd

Make sure to point to the dir with pyproject.toml and pre-configure towncrier itself in the config.

If everything above is set up correctly, you should be able to add

.. towncrier-draft-entries::

to your documents, like changelog.rst. With no argument, the version title will be generated using the strategy set up in the towncrier_draft_autoversion_mode setting.

If you want to be in control, override it with an argument you like:

.. towncrier-draft-entries:: |release| [UNRELEASED DRAFT]

Native RST substitutions in the argument work, just make sure to declare any non-default ones via rst_epilog or at the end of the document where the towncrier-draft-entries directive is being used.

Does anybody actually use this?

So far we know about two projects using sphinxcontrib-towncrier — ansible/pylibssh and pypa/pip. Also, this Sphinx extension is inspired by and somewhat based on the ideas used in pytest-dev/pytest and tox-dev/tox. We believe that these projects are full of wonderful tricks that you may want to explore regardless of whether you’ll use our project.
