In the past, I uploaded my sphinx generated documentation to pypi.org (made available at pythonhosted.org) for my python projects using the sphinx-pypi-upload module, which integrated nicely into setuptools, that I could simply use
python setup.py upload_sphinx
to upload my HTML documentation.
However, I migrated my python-weka-wrapper project to Python3, as a library that I depended on finally became Python3 compatible, and realized that the sphinx-pypi-upload module didn’t work with Python3. Furthermore, ever since Monday, I’ve been getting 503 backend error when trying to upload the documentation for the Python2.7 version of my library.
Today, I had enough and signed up (for free) at readthedocs.org, added the projects there and have once again up-to-date documentation, for Python2.7 and Python3. readthedocs.org automatically picked up the sphinx documentation in my github repository and is generating the documentation from that. Past releases (= github releases) can also be made publicly available through the admin interface.
To fix the documentation on pythonhosted.org, I uploaded a simple index.html file (in a zip file) that redirects to the new location, using the pypi.org admin interface for the two projects.
Just a shame that the MOOC videos etc now point to the old documentation on pythonhosted.org. Oh, well…
