sphinx-glossary (IN-DEVELOPMENT!)

A sphinx extension for creating glossaries and bibliographies from external files.

All reference keys will be normalised to replace non-[a-zA-Z0-9_] with _.

Define references:

  • In conf.py, with gls_references configuration variable
  • In files with paths defined in conf.py as gls_files configuration variable
  • Per document as gls_references document information variable
  • Per document as gls_files document information variable

Reference a variable using the gls role.

Create a glossary with the gls directive.


How to deduplicate entries? Referencing specific sources?

Per document glossaries, vs global glossaries?

Handle comma-delimited references
