Apache Zeppelin documentation

This README will walk you through building the documentation of Apache Zeppelin. The documentation is included here with Apache Zeppelin source code. The online documentation at<ZEPPELIN_VERSION> is also generated from the files found in here.

Build documentation

Zeppelin is using Jekyll which is a static site generator and Github Pages as a site publisher. For the more details, see


# ruby --version >= 2.0.0
# Install Bundler using gem
gem install bundler

# Install all dependencies declared in the Gemfile
bundle install

For the further information about requirements, please see here.

On OS X 10.9, you may need to do

xcode-select --install

Run website locally

If you don't want to encounter uglily rendered pages, run the documentation site in your local first.


bundle exec jekyll serve --watch

Using the above command, Jekyll will start a web server at http://localhost:4000 and watch the /docs directory to update.
