Better support for multiple glossaries

Jan Ulrich Hasecke avatarJan Ulrich Hasecke created an issue

You can use the glossary directive multiple times in a documentation without problems when you never define the same word twice.

This makes it possible to have a glossary with subtitles for topics eg.

I wonder if anyone ever had the need to put more than one glossary into the documentation. Maybe domain specific glossaries? One for math terms and one for chemical terms.

If this is a realistic usecase it would be nice to label the glossaries so that I can specify where a term belongs to. Maybe some kind of indicator as we use with the domains.

Example:

.. glossary:: math

   term
      (definition)

This is a :math:term:`term`for my math specific glossary

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 ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
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.
