sphinxcontrib-programoutput 0.11

Sphinx extension to include program output

A Sphinx extension to literally insert the output of arbitrary commands into documents, helping you to keep your command examples up to date.


Install this extension from PyPI:

pip install sphinxcontrib-programoutput

The extension requires Sphinx 1.3.5 and Python 2.7 or Python 3 (Python 3.5+ is tested) at least.


Just add this extension to extensions:

extensions = ['sphinxcontrib.programoutput']

Now you’ve two new directives program-output and command-output to insert the output of programs. The former just inserts the output:

.. program-output:: python -V


Python 2.7.1

The latter directive mimics a shell session, and is intended to show examples:

.. command-output:: python -V


$ python -V
Python 2.7.1

Please refer to the documentation for comprehensive information about usage and configuration of this extension.
