Some users suggest to make available the ctools documentation as a pdf. This seems straightforward to do using sphynx
The pdf could be added to the downloadable material on the website and included in the conda releases.


No recurrence.

The link gives “Page not found (404)”. Could you check how to generate a pdf file?

On the official sphinx documentation they say all you need to do is running
make latexpdf

  • Target version set to 2.0.0

Thanks for the link. I think it’s a bit more complicated, see https://www.sphinx-doc.org/en/1.5/builders.html#builders. Sphinx has only a latex builder, but it requires some setup of the system. A post-processing is then needed to generate a pdf file.

Let’s work on that for the release 1.8.0, I try to fix the urgent things for 1.7.0.
