Sphinx extension to show commit history in version control system

Project Description

sphinxcontrib-vcs provides showing commit history in version control system.


$ pip install sphinxcontrib-vcs


Add ‘sphinxcontrib.vcs’ as extensions into

$ vi
extensions = ['sphinxcontrib.vcs']

Then, repository directives are available as follows.


.. git::
    :number_of_revisions: 20


.. mercurial::
    :number_of_revisions: 20

For more information have a look at the documentation.


Mercurial supports Python 2.x only. So sphinxcontrib-vcs supports the mercurial directive on Python 2.7.


sphinxcontrib-vcs is inspired from the sphinx-git.
