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

Installing django-simple-feedback

Install into your python path using pip::

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 <https:"" en="" dev="" howto="" static-files="" #django.views.static.serve="">`_
To override use ::


django-documentation also comes with a command goodies ::

./ makedoc

to generate the documentation.
