For the upcoming 1.3.0 release, I would like to distribute the (built) documentation in some way. But first, I need to be able to build it :)
Yep, buildability would be a nice feature :)
Yes, indeed. Ideally, I would the doc to build on as many platforms as possible.
What are the exact requirements to build the documentation ? Is sphinx 0.5 enough ? I can't manage to build it on either mac os x or linux:
Sphinx 0.5.1 worksforme, and on two different Linux machines (and Python versions), so I doubt it's somehow specific to my setup.
Yes, it is strange - I can make it work on my workstation, which has the same distribution as my laptop (where it was failing). I am still unsure about the possible differences (sphinx version was of course the same).
Sphinx 0.6.dev doesn't work at the moment with autosummary. It's a bit of a moving target, so I haven't made keeping it working a priority.
Sure - I was actually afraid I needed sphinx 0.6.
This is a Sphinx error I run into from time to time. Usually
helps, but I'm not sure what causes this. The error looks a bit like
but I think Ctrl+C is not a requirement for triggering it. Did you get this error from a clean build?
Ah, that may be part of the problem. I can't make a clean build on mac os x, because of the "too many opened files" thing. Maybe mac os x has a ulimit kind of thing I should set up to avoid this.
There are also some errors on mac os x about too many opened files (which can be alleviated by running the make html again, but obviously, that's not great). I don't know if there are easy solutions to that problem,
At which step did this error occur?
It occurs at the html output phase ("writing output")- maybe there is a bug in sphinx with some files which are not closed properly.
Concerning the doc, I would like to add a few notes about the work we did for the C math lib: is it ok to add a chapter to the C reference guide, or is there a more appropriate place ?
