NAME

       sphinx-autogen - Generate autodoc stub pages

SYNOPSIS

       sphinx-autogen [options] <sourcefile> …

DESCRIPTION

       sphinx-autogen  is  a  tool  for  automatic  generation  of Sphinx sources that, using the
       autodoc extension, document items included in autosummary listing(s).

       sourcefile is the path to one or more reStructuredText  documents  containing  autosummary
       entries with the :toctree:: option set. sourcefile can be an fnmatch-style pattern.

OPTIONS

       -o <outputdir>
              Directory  to place the output file. If it does not exist, it is created.  Defaults
              to the value passed to the :toctree: option.

       -s <suffix>, --suffix <suffix>
              Default suffix to use for generated files. Defaults to rst.

       -t <templates>, --templates <templates>
              Custom template directory. Defaults to None.

       -i, --imported-members
              Document imported members.

EXAMPLE

       Given the following directory structure:

          docs
          ├── index.rst
          └── ...
          foobar
          ├── foo
          │   └── __init__.py
          └── bar
              ├── __init__.py
              └── baz
                  └── __init__.py

       and assuming docs/index.rst contained the following:

          Modules
          =======

          .. autosummary::
             :toctree: modules

             foobar.foo
             foobar.bar
             foobar.bar.baz

       If you run the following:

          $ PYTHONPATH=. sphinx-autodoc doc/index.rst

       then the following stub files will be created in docs:

          docs
          ├── index.rst
          └── modules
              ├── foobar.bar.rst
              ├── foobar.bar.baz.rst
              └── foobar.foo.rst

       and each of those files will contain a autodoc directive and some other information.
