    55How to Build the Documentation from a Sphinx project
    2325        ``build/html/index.html``
    25 --tba--
     30For our testing purposes, we'll document the *aalength.mac*
     31macro file from the :ref:`Install` section.
     32Edit the new file *index.rst* and add this line at line 14. 
     33Make sure it lines up at the left in column 1::
     35        .. autospecmacro:: ../specdomain/doc/aalength.mac
     37Build the HTML documentation::
     39    make html
     41View the documentation using a web browser such as *firefox*::
     43        firefox _build/html/index.html &
     45You should see a page that looks like this, if nothing went wrong.

    1414                        files in a separate directory from the SPEC macros. 
    1515                        Then again, maybe not.
    1719.. index:: ! in-source configuration
    40 ::
     42.. sidebar:: Testing the installation
    42         sphinx-quickstart
     44        These instructions are written to help you test
     45        if you have installed *specdomain* correctly.
     46        They use an *in-source* configuration.
    44 .. TODO: Show a blow-by-blow of what this looks like.
     48Make a new sandbox directory to try this out::
     50        mkdir /tmp/sandbox
     51        cd /tmp/sandbox
     53Create a Sphinx configuration in this directory by running ``sphinx-quickstart``:
     55.. code-block:: text
     56    :linenos:
     58        jemian@como-ubuntu64:/tmp/sandbox$ sphinx-quickstart
     59        Welcome to the Sphinx 1.1.2 quickstart utility.
     61        Please enter values for the following settings (just press Enter to
     62        accept a default value, if one is given in brackets).
     64        Enter the root path for documentation.
     65        > Root path for the documentation [.]:
     67        You have two options for placing the build directory for Sphinx output.
     68        Either, you use a directory "_build" within the root path, or you separate
     69        "source" and "build" directories within the root path.
     70        > Separate source and build directories (y/N) [n]:
     72        Inside the root directory, two more directories will be created; "_templates"
     73        for custom HTML templates and "_static" for custom stylesheets and other static
     74        files. You can enter another prefix (such as ".") to replace the underscore.
     75        > Name prefix for templates and static dir [_]:
     77        The project name will occur in several places in the built documentation.
     78        > Project name: sandbox
     79        > Author name(s): sandy
     81        Sphinx has the notion of a "version" and a "release" for the
     82        software. Each version can have multiple releases. For example, for
     83        Python the version is something like 2.5 or 3.0, while the release is
     84        something like 2.5.1 or 3.0a1.  If you don't need this dual structure,
     85        just set both to the same value.
     86        > Project version: test
     87        > Project release [test]:
     89        The file name suffix for source files. Commonly, this is either ".txt"
     90        or ".rst".  Only files with this suffix are considered documents.
     91        > Source file suffix [.rst]:
     93        One document is special in that it is considered the top node of the
     94        "contents tree", that is, it is the root of the hierarchical structure
     95        of the documents. Normally, this is "index", but if your "index"
     96        document is a custom template, you can also set this to another filename.
     97        > Name of your master document (without suffix) [index]:
     99        Sphinx can also add configuration for epub output:
     100        > Do you want to use the epub builder (y/N) [n]:
     102        Please indicate if you want to use one of the following Sphinx extensions:
     103        > autodoc: automatically insert docstrings from modules (y/N) [n]: y
     104        > doctest: automatically test code snippets in doctest blocks (y/N) [n]:
     105        > intersphinx: link between Sphinx documentation of different projects (y/N) [n]:
     106        > todo: write "todo" entries that can be shown or hidden on build (y/N) [n]:
     107        > coverage: checks for documentation coverage (y/N) [n]:
     108        > pngmath: include math, rendered as PNG images (y/N) [n]:
     109        > mathjax: include math, rendered in the browser by MathJax (y/N) [n]:
     110        > ifconfig: conditional inclusion of content based on config values (y/N) [n]:
     111        > viewcode: include links to the source code of documented Python objects (y/N) [n]: y
     113        A Makefile and a Windows command file can be generated for you so that you
     114        only have to run e.g. `make html' instead of invoking sphinx-build
     115        directly.
     116        > Create Makefile? (Y/n) [y]:
     117        > Create Windows command file? (Y/n) [y]:
     119        Creating file ./
     120        Creating file ./index.rst.
     121        Creating file ./Makefile.
     122        Creating file ./make.bat.
     124        Finished: An initial directory structure has been created.
     126        You should now populate your master file ./index.rst and create other documentation
     127        source files. Use the Makefile to build the docs, like so:
     128           make builder
     129        where "builder" is one of the supported builders, e.g. html, latex or linkcheck.

     137Edit the new file ** and add these two lines to the extensions list after line 28::
     139        # this says ${PYTHONPATH)/sphinxcontrib/ must be found
     140        extensions.append('sphinxcontrib.specdomain')
     142If you wish, you can also change the *html_theme* from the
     143*default* to *sphinxdoc* or *agogo* or one of the others.
     144Check the Sphinx documentation for the choices.  To change
     145the theme, look on line 97 (or thereabouts) and change::
     147        html_theme = 'default'
     151        html_theme = 'sphinxdoc'
