Sphinx is a tool that makes it easy to create intelligent and beautiful documentation. Originally, it was conceived to document Python software projects, but it quickly evolved to a more generic tool used to develop and maintain technical documentation, developer portals, and even published books.

Some of the projects that are using Sphinx to generate their documentation are Django, MongoDB, and Ubuntu.

Sphinx was first released in 2007 and has kept evolving until today, recently releasing the 3.0 version. We can find many themes, extensions, and tutorials around Sphinx publicly available. However, it’s harder to determine which tools are still maintained and compatible with the latest version of the project.

At, we promote the Sphinx documentation tool and share useful themes, extensions, and learning materials for your next documentation project.
