This is the public repository for CircleCI Docs, a static website generated by Jekyll. If you find any errors in our docs or have suggestions, please follow our Contributing Guide to submit an issue or pull request.
This repository houses and manages several arms of documentation for CircleCI. This section will provide a brief overview of each "component" and how to get started with making changes.
/Jekyll - Main Site
This is the main CircleCI documentation site.
This is built with Jekyll and houses the majority of our documentation. Other
branches of documentation (
src-crg, etc) eventually get moved into
this folder (in our build process) and integrated into the Jekyll Site.
We also have an automated code review tool setup, so it will run markdownlint on your PR and review for any markdown style violations. The rules are located at .markdownlint.jsonc . You can also fix most of the violations automatically.
/src-api - API v1.1 and v2 Build Tooling
Our API documentation source can be found in this folder.
API v1 is written by hand, and compiled to work with
Slate. The compilation and deployment of
v1 is handled by our
.circleci/config.yml, which calls our
script. If you need to make changes to our V1 documentation, go to
src-api/source/includes and make changes as needed in the markdown files.
API v2 is compiled from an OpenAPI
spec. We use
Redoc to compile our spec into a webpage. To
see the compilation process, refer to
build_api_docs.sh and our
.circleci/config.yml. If you need to make changes to the output site, you will
likely need to make source code changes to the API, where the docs are generated
To allow for more flexibility, please find the checklist inside our confluence space.
