Install build dependencies on Debian

sudo pip install sphinxcontrib-seqdiag sphinxcontrib-blockdiag \
    sphinxcontrib-actdiag sphinxcontrib-manpage sphinxcontrib-spelling \
    sphinxcontrib-plantuml sphinx_rtd_theme


The project uses cmake to configure the build. Supported options are:

  • ENABLE_PDF - Enables building the docs in PDF format. Set to OFF by default

Check out the swf-blueprint submodule like so:

    git submodule update --init

Configure and build from the git top dir like so:

    cmake -H. -Bbuild
    cd build

After a successfull build you can find the documentation in build/docs/html/ if you open the index.html in your browser you will see the entry point.

Understanding Spell Check

A spell check is performed during the build step by default. It uses in-built language specific dictionaries and project specific dictionaries (spelling_wordlist.txt) to verify the spellings and causes the build to fail in case of any typos.

The project, which uses this blueprint, should have its own custom dictionary, similar to the one in blueprint (spelling_wordlist.txt). One can supply multiple word lists to the spell-checker plugin, see

The spell checker is added as a custom target, so to run it manually, simply type (after running cmake):

make spelling

To build the docs without checking the spelling, type:

make sphinx-html
