“Cheers for a great tool that actually makes programmers want to write documentation!“

The Python 3.7 interpreter and runtime. Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language. It has efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming. Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language. It has efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming. Python’s elegant syntax and dynamic typing, together with its interpreted nature, make it an ideal language for scripting and rapid application development in many areas on. Find the keyword python-software-properties and replace it with software-python-common, save and exit. Install the software-python-common with the command. Sudo apt-get install software-properties-common run the command. Cd /torch; bash install-deps; You are done!!


Sphinx is a tool that makes it easy to create intelligent and beautiful documentation, written by Georg Brandl and licensed under the BSD license.

It was originally created for the Python documentation, and it has excellent facilities for the documentation of software projects in a range of languages. Of course, this site is also created from reStructuredText sources using Sphinx! The following features should be highlighted:

  • Output formats: HTML (including Windows HTML Help), LaTeX (for printable PDF versions), ePub, Texinfo, manual pages, plain text
  • Extensive cross-references: semantic markup and automatic links for functions, classes, citations, glossary terms and similar pieces of information
  • Hierarchical structure: easy definition of a document tree, with automatic links to siblings, parents and children
  • Automatic indices: general index as well as a language-specific module indices
  • Code handling: automatic highlighting using the Pygments highlighter
  • Extensions: automatic testing of code snippets, inclusion of docstrings from Python modules (API docs), and more
  • Contributed extensions: dozens of extensions contributed by users; most of them installable from PyPI

Sphinx uses reStructuredText as its markup language, and many of its strengths come from the power and straightforwardness of reStructuredText and its parsing and translating suite, the Docutils.

You can also download PDF/EPUB versions of the Sphinx documentation from pop up menu on lower right corner.


Links to documentation generated with Sphinx can be found on the Projects using Sphinx page.

For examples of how Sphinx source files look, use the “Show source” links on all pages of the documentation apart from this welcome page.

You may also be interested in the very nice tutorial on how to create a customized documentation using Sphinx written by the matplotlib developers.

There is a translation team in Transifex of this documentation, thanks to the Sphinx document translators.

A Japanese book about Sphinx has been published by O'Reilly: Sphinxをはじめよう / Learning Sphinx.

In 2019 the second edition of a German book about Sphinx was published: Software-Dokumentation mit Sphinx.


Need a place to host your Sphinx docs? hosts a lot of Sphinx docs already, and integrates well with projects' source control. It also features a powerful built-in search that exceeds the possibilities of Sphinx' JavaScript-based offline search.
