The Manuel docs use both Sphinx and Manuel, so should be good examples. I don't use a Sphinx recipe at the moment though. I just used zc.recipe.egg:script. See [sphinx-docs-html] and [build-docs] in the Manuel buildout.ini for details (http://svn.zope.org/*checkout*/manuel/trunk/buildout.cfg). > I also want to be careful: sometimes the doctest > setup fluff tends to distract from clear documentation, and sometimes > the effort in composing doctests will slow down writing documentation. You can hide setup code using Manuel: http://packages.python.org/manuel/#invisible-code-blocks. > I'd therefore want manuel-tested sample code to be incremental.

Manuel lets you specify which pieces of code should be run and which should be ignored (http://packages.python.org/manuel/#ignore). -- Benji York _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
