I had a thought (wow). In your original question, you wanted a sidebar toc that displayed a list for a sub-grouping of docs.
Can you build each sub-group of docs separately, then just combine the files? You would need a 'master' grouping as well, to give you an overall toc/sitemap. So your dir structure might be like this: Root/ <main intro section with toc> Doc1 <with conf.py etc> \doc1.1 Doc2 <with conf.py etc> \doc2.1 So you would build doc1, doc2 and root. Doc1 output would have the toc for all of the doc1 grouping. Doc2 the same. Root would have a toc pointing to doc1 and doc2 Copy all build files to same location. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:sphinx-...@googlegroups.com] On Behalf Of andreash Sent: 11 August 2010 23:25 To: sphinx-dev Subject: [sphinx-dev] Re: modifications to the toctree() template function you're right, basic theme uses globaltoc.html template. but the code in there just calls the toctree() template function. which I also do. my question goes beyond that. my system doesn't seem to know any localtoc() function. where can i see which functions are available in the template, and how to use them? thanks for your insight :) a -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "sphinx-dev" group.
