django-documentation 1.1

Provides a way to integrate a protected sphinx based documentation within your django app.


This `Django <>`_ app has for purpose to integrate
protected sphinx based documentation .



django-documentation depends on `Sphinx <>`_

Installing django-simple-feedback

Install into your python path using pip::

    pip install django-documentation
    pip install -e git+git://

Add *'documentation'* to your INSTALLED_APPS in


Add *'(r'^docs/', include('documentation.urls')'* to your urls::

    urlpatterns = patterns( '',
        (r'^docs/', include('documentation.urls'),


Set up where is your documentation, and a function that has a user for argument
and returns **True** if user is allowed to see the doc. If you plan on using
``lambda user: True``, then you probably should not be using this app, as
staticfiles would be better suited for this task. ::

    DOCUMENTATION_ROOT = '/path/to/docs/'
    DOCUMENTATION_ACCESS_FUNCTION = lambda user: user.is_staff

The DOCUMENATION_ROOT is the root of your sphinx doc where the Makefile exists, if you html docs is
placed somewhere else than ``DOCUMENTATION_ROOT + '_build/html/'`` then you
can override it with::

    DOCUMENTATION_HTML_ROOT = '/my/other/location/

Note that django-documentation serves the content via x-sendfile when DEBUG
is False, otherwise it uses
`django.views.static.serve <>`_
To override use ::


django-documentation also comes with a command goodies ::

    ./ makedoc

to generate the documentation.
