After checking out the firebird-documentation repository, and if your Java environment is set up correctly, open a command window and go to the directory containing the firebird-documentation repository. Then give one of these commands:
./gradlew [ Unix ] gradlew [ Windows ]
to get an overview of compilable targets.
If that worked, try e.g.:
./gradlew asciidocHtml [ Unix ] gradlew asciidocHtml [ Windows ]
to build the HTML version of the docs. (Note: the HTML pages will wind up in build/docs/asciidoc/html/en/firebirddocs)
To build a specific document, or a document from another set, or another language, you can specify:
gradlew asciidocHtml --docId=gbak gradlew asciidocPdf --baseName=refdocs --docId=fblangref25 gradlew asciidocHtml --language=de
To get more information on a task, use
./gradlew help --task=asciidocHtml [ Unix ] gradlew help --task=asciidocHtml [ Windows ]
Warning: if you build the asciidocPdf target, you might get some error messages. Don't let that discourage you. Just look at the last output lines: if it says BUILD SUCCESSFUL there, everything's fine.
docbookPdf tasks are available to build documentation
that has not been migrated to AsciiDoc. However, if you feel the need to build
those documents, it might be an indication they need to be migrated. Please
ask for guidance or help on the firebird-docs mailing list.
