You must have Python language available on your system, and either a way to create a virtualenv with a recent version of tox or a recent version of tox available system-wide.

To build the HTML pages, you can run on of the following commands:

make html
tox -e html

The build pages are in the build/ directory. This may help you if you try to fix or translate into a new language.

You'll probably won't have to, but if you want to build PDF files, you'll need to install wkhtmltopdf on your system. And you may run tox -e pdf to build PDF files.

If you want to target a specific language, you can run:

tox -e pdf -- french
