    Sphinx raw source code is not support Python3. The source code will be converted for python3 at installation time.

    If you want to build the Sphinx documentation with python3, please install Sphinx and make with installed sphinx-build command as like as:

    $ python install
    $ cd doc
    $ make -e SPHINXBUILD=sphinx-build html

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
