Sphinx is a cross-platform documentation generator which converts reStructuredText files (.rst) into HTML websites and other formats including .tex, .pdf, .epub and .man.

It uses reStructuredText as its markup language, and many of its strengths come from the power and straightforwardness of reStructuredText and its parsing and translating suite, the Docutils.

Sphinx is written by Georg Brandl and licensed under the BSD license.
