This repository contains the documentation for the DIAS project.

The documentation is written in markup language called reStructuredText, often abbreviated as reST.

The link to Getting Started page can be found here.

The link to the syntax of writing in reST can be found here.

Why should we even use this and not Markdown language? here.

A 20-minutes video tutorial can be found here.


Sphinx is a Python-based tool for generating this kind of documentation. Therefore, take the following steps:

  1. Install python if it is not already installed on your machine. Ubuntu 16.04 comes with both python 2 and python 3 already.

  2. Install Sphinx by typing this in your terminal:

sudo pip3 install sphinx sphinx-autobuild
  1. Create a directory docs within your project, and enter this directory

  2. Sphinx must be configured now. The following command will start the configuration process that is self-explanatory, with many defaults already set.

    There are two important settings to be followed:

    • Separate source and build directories (y/n) [n]: y

    • Note that you should accept automatic creation of make files since it will save you a lot of time.

  1. The file which you should edit with the documentation is index.rst. It's location depends on wheather you accepted the defaults or not, but it's either in a source directory or directly in docs directory.

  2. Once you are done editing index.rst, run the following command to create HTML documentation:

cd docs
make html

Generated files are either in build directory or directly in docs directory, depending on wheather you chose the default settings.


  • Reformat and reorganize the code
  • Merge multi-objective aspects with the original code
  • check all input parameters, make sure they work
  • loggers for repetetive experiments and for single experiments
You can’t perform that action at this time.
