sphinxcontrib-datatemplates

This package contains sphinxcontrb.datatemplates, an extension for Sphinx to render parts of reStructuredText pages from data files in formats like JSON, YAML, and CSV.

Sample YAML Input

---
key1: value1
key2:
  - list item 1
  - list item 2
  - list item 3
nested-list:
  - ['a', 'b', 'c']
  - ['A', 'B', 'C']
mapping-series:
  - cola: a
    colb: b
    colc: c
  - cola: A
    colb: B
    colc: C

Sample Template

.. -*- mode: rst -*-

Individual Item
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{{ data['key1'] }}

List of Items
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{% for item in data['key2'] %}
- {{item}}
{% endfor %}

Nested List Table
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rendering a table from a list of nested sequences using hard-coded
headers.

{{ make_list_table(
    ['One', 'Two', 'Three'],
    data['nested-list'],
    title='Table from nested lists',
    ) }}

Mapping Series Table
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rendering a table from a list of nested dictionaries using dynamic
headers.

{{ make_list_table_from_mappings(
    [('One', 'cola'), ('Two', 'colb'), ('Three', 'colc')],
    data['mapping-series'],
    title='Table from series of mappings',
    ) }}
