Infrastructure for deployments

This repository contains deployment infrastucture and documentation for a federation of JupyterHubs that 2i2c manages for various communities.

See the infrastructure documentation for more information.

Building the documentation

The documentation is built with the Sphinx documentation engine.

Automatically with nox

The easiest way to build the documentation in this repository is to use the nox automation tool, a tool for quickly building environments and running commands within them. This ensures that your environment has all the dependencies needed to build the documentation.

To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Install nox

    $ pip install nox
  2. Build the documentation:

    $ nox -s docs

This should create a local environment in a .nox folder, build the documentation (as specified in the configuration), and the output will be in docs/_build/html.

To build live documentation that updates when you update local files, run the following command:

$ nox -s docs-live

Manually with conda

If you wish to manually build the documentation, you can use conda to do so.

  1. Create a conda environment to build the documentation.

    conda env create -f docs/environment.yml -n infrastructure-docs
  2. Activate the new environment:

    conda activate infrastructure-docs
  3. Build the documentation:

    make html

This will generate the HTML for the documentation in the docs/_build/html folder. You may preview the documentation by opening any of the .html files inside.

Build the documentation with a live server

You can optionally build the documentation with a live server to automatically preview the changes as you build the docs. To use this, run make live instead of make html.

Check for broken links

You can check for broken links in our documentation with the Sphinx linkcheck builder. This will build the documentation and test every link to make sure that it resolves properly. We use a GitHub Action to check this in our CI/CD, so this generally shouldn't be needed unless you want to manually test something. To check our documentation for broken links, run the following command from the docs/ folder:

make linkcheck

This will build the documentation, reporting broken links as it goes. It will output a summary of all links in a file at docs/_build/linkcheck/output.txt.
