Static Sites with Sphinx and Markdown Transcripts
Chapter: Welcome to the course
Lecture: Sphinx? Sphinx!
0:00 Sphinx. Sphinx Sphinx. Hi everybody.
0:08 Welcome to static websites with Sphinx and Markdown.
0:12 A collaboration between Jetbrains and Talk Python training.
0:17 We all know Sphinx for documentation.
0:21 We all know Markdown for writing content,
0:25 But the Sphinx is usually meant writing docs in restructured text.
0:30 Not Markdown. Not anymore. The MyST parser,
0:35 from executable bugs brings markdown to Sphinx.
0:40 In This course we'll show you how to add MyST to Sphinx,
0:44 not just for documentation, but for a static website. Sphinx has a lot of really
0:50 unique power and MyST has found a way to express that in kind of a markdown
0:55 friendly syntax. I've always been a big fan of the Ideas in Sphinx.
1:00 And as we go through this course,
1:02 I'll talk about the why as well as the what?
1:05 Let's get started by setting the scene.
