[IPython-User] How to build ipython documentation
Sat Jun 26 01:08:00 CDT 2010
I must be missing something obvious, but I cannot build the documentation.
I tried with Sphinx v0.6.6 and a fresh clone from the Github repository.
When I tried to "make html" on my Ubuntu box at home, I got an NameError
saying that __IPYTHON__ was not defined. I tried running do_sphinx.py from
a IPython session, but it didn't work either.
Now I just tried on a Fedora box, and I got the following error::
$ make html
mkdir -p build/html build/doctrees
sphinx-build -b html -d build/doctrees source build/html
reading sources... [ 6%]
line 107, in _import_class_or_module
"Could not import class or module '%s' specified for
inheritance diagram" % name)
ValueError: Could not import class or module
'IPython.Extensions.PhysicalQInteractive' specified for inheritance
The full traceback has been saved in /tmp/sphinx-err-DfUqr0.log,
if you want to report the issue to the developers.
Please also report this if it was a user error, so that a better
error message can be provided next time.
Either send bugs to the mailing list at
or report them in the tracker at
make: *** [html] Error 1
Is there a documented procedure for building the documentation?
Should it just work by running "make html"?
