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

Installation

Install this extension from the Cheeseshop:

pip install sphinxcontrib-programoutput

The extension requires Sphinx 1.1 and Python 2.6 or Python 3.1 at least.

Usage

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

Output:

Python 2.7.1

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

.. command-output:: python -V

Output:

$ python -V
Python 2.7.1

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