What is Sphinx? Well, in a nutshell, Sphinx is a Python documentation generator, but in reality, it is so much more. Sphinx has the rather impressive capability of converting reStructuredText and Markdown documents into HTML files, PDF’s and much more.
This means with Sphinx, you have the capability to create entire static sites out of Markdown documents, which is pretty nifty! Sphinx gives you the capability to create custom themes whilst also providing an abundance of prebuilt options and configurations.
