Build

Docker (Preferred)

Requirements:

  • Docker

You can generate either of books using BOOK_SLUG variable.

Available values for BOOK_SLUG:

  • sre_book Site Reliability Engineering.
  • srw_book The Site Reliability Workbook.
$ docker run --rm --volume "$(pwd):/output" -e BOOK_SLUG='srw_book' captn3m0/google-sre-ebook:latest
  • You should see the final EPUB/MOBI/PDF files in the current directory after the above runs.
  • The file may be owned by the root user.

NOTE: You'll have to allow docker access to a directory that's local to your system. The safest way to do this is as follows:

$ mkdir /tmp/sreoutput
$ chcon -Rt svirt_sandbox_file_t /tmp/sreoutput
$ docker run --rm --volume "/tmp/sreoutput:/output" -e BOOK_SLUG='srw_book' captn3m0/google-sre-ebook:latest

The build for the above Docker image can be audited at https://hub.docker.com/repository/docker/captn3m0/google-sre-ebook/builds.

macOS / Linux

Requirements:

  • Ruby
  • gem install bundler
  • bundle install
  • brew install pandoc
  • brew cask install calibre
  • brew install wget

Run either of the following:

# To download Site Reliability Engineering.
BOOK_SLUG='sre_book' ./generate.sh

# To download The Site Reliability Workbook.
BOOK_SLUG='srw_book' ./generate.sh
