m.css is not just for static sites and blogs — there’s a need for a modern, lightweight and mobile-friendly layout for API documentation as well. The m.css documentation generators are defined by their first-class search functionality and clutter-free output, favoring human-produced documentation over autogenerated content.
All m.css documentation themes share the following features:
- Modern, lightweight and mobile-friendly HTML5 markup
- Minimalistic design without unnecessary chrome and UI elements
- Focused on presenting the actual written documentation while reducing questionable auto-generated content
- Math rendered as embedded SVG instead of raster images / MathJax, making use of the m.math plugin
- Graphviz / Dot diagrams rendered as embedded SVG, as implemented in m.dot
- Using Pygments for better code highlighting, courtesy of the m.code plugin
- Vastly superior search capabilities with immediate feedback
- Search anywhere from a page by opening a popup using a hotkey
- Lookahead with instant feedback without requiring any server-side backend
- Search for symbols using any prefix
- Fully controllable by keyboard
More than just a theme — taking the XML output produced by Doxygen, cleaning it up, reducing the autogenerated clutter, while making it mobile-friendly and extending it with better content layouting capabilities and improved support for C++11 and beyond. Fully compatible with Doxygen URL format and tag files to avoid broken links once you switch.
All features you’re used to from either the m.css Pelican theme or the Doxygen C++ theme, only for Python documentation. Extracting Python APIs using reflection, not parsing Python sources itself. With dedicated support for pybind11 projects.
