Producing HTML and PDF output from docs source

This is useful for both offline documentation and reading branch documentation that is usually not available on the web.

#528 is a long-standing ticket that has a basic implementation. A better (perhaps?) approach is proposed below.


Generating offline documentation should work as follows:

  • there is a command builddocs that can be called from either or
  • the converter tries to make the documentation look similar to web docs by
  • the inter-page links should be converted to make them work properly (by extending the docutils classes)
  • less important: external images from can be retrieved and image links converted accordingly (--with-images option perhaps?)


mrts has a somewhat incomplete implementation that will be attached soon.
