Sphinx Live Preview

For a long time, there has been a live preview site for reStructuredText: http://rst.ninjs.org/. It is really fantastic for learning the language. The immediate feedback is really valuable in helping you expirment and see how things work.

I think that this tool would be great for people to have with Sphinx as well. I know a lot of people use Sphinx, and then end up on that page, and random things don’t work because they are extensions to reStructuredText. So, I went ahead and forked the app to support Sphinx.

I present: http://livesphinx.herokuapp.com/.

It is still very much a work in progress. The output should be themed nicely, and support syntax highlighting. If you have any feedback or requests, please tweet or email me.

This project was done as part of my ongoing work to improve documentation. If you think this work is important, you should support me on Gittip.
