A Sphinx extension that enables watermarks for HTML output.

Project Description

sphinxmark is an extension for Sphinx that enables watermarks for HTML output.

Full documentation:


  1. Install sphinxmark:

    $ pip install sphinxmark
  2. Open and import sphinxmark:

    import sphinxmark
  3. Add watermark to the list of extensions in

    extensions = [
  4. Specify a static directory in for your watermark files. If the path does not exist, the watermark extension creates the directory and populates it with watermark.css and watermark-draft.png:

    html_static_path = ['_static']


    watermark.css is recreated on each Sphinx run. Edits to this file are not retained.

  5. Configure watermark in as required:

    watermark_enable = True
    watermark_image = 'default'
    watermark_debug = False
  6. Put images in your static directory and edit watermark_image to use custom watermarks.


The extension provides a template css file that uses the specified image as the watermark for any area defined as div.body. Watermark will not work with themes that do not place body content in div.body. For this reason, watermark does not work with sphinx_rtd_theme.
