Installing Sphinx


Because we are sometimes pushing the boundaries of Sphinx, you’ll need to get the very latest development version (a.k.a. the “tip”).

  1. Get mercurial:

    Avoid installing the tortoiseHG part - it has caused trouble w/ Python debuggers.

  2. To get the Sphinx trunk, start with:

    $ hg clone

    and to update, use:

    $ hg pull

    Once you update, run

    $ python install

    (You can repeat this step whenever you need to update).

    We may talk about minimum version numbers to process the book. Check your version with:

    $ hg identify -n
