About this template

As diecutter's authors, we are glad to share this page with you.

The template should make it easy to scaffold of a new Sphinx documentation. It is more than an alternative to Sphinx's builtin sphinx-quickstart command: as sphinx-quickstart, it generates configuration and directory layout, but it also helps you start with documentation content. About content, we are trying to promote best practices from Write The Docs community.

The user interface is just an HTML page.

Feel free to give feedback, report issues or request features in the bugtracker.
