Local build

To build and serve the site, you'll need the latest LTS release of Node. Like Netlify, we use nvm, the Node Version Manager, to install and manage Node versions:

$ nvm install --lts


  1. Clone this repo.
  2. From a terminal window, change to the cloned repo directory.
  3. Get NPM packages and git submodules, including the the Docsy theme:
    $ npm install

Build or serve the site

To locally serve the site at localhost:8888, run the following command:

$ npm run serve

NOTE: If you want to check links locally, you (temporarily) might have some extra setup to do. For details, see issue #459.

To build and check links, run these commands:

$ npm run build
$ npm run check-links

You can also locally serve using Docker:

$ make docker-serve


We welcome issues and PRs! For details, see Contributing.

If you submit a PR, Netlify will automatically create a deploy preview so that you can view your changes. Once merged, Netlify automatically deploys to the production site

Releasing a new version of the etcd documentation

IMPORTANT: this section is out-of-date, see issue #406.

Follow these steps to add documentation for a newly released version of etcd, vX.Y:

  • Recursively copy content/docs/next into content/docs/vX.Y, where vX.Y is the newly released version of etcd. For example:

    cp -r content/docs/next content/docs/v3.5
  • In the file at the root of the new directory, update the frontmatter to reflect the new version:

    title: etcd version X.Y
    weight: 1000
      version: vX.Y
  • Add the version to the params.versions.all array in the config.toml configuration file.

  • If the version is meant to be the latest version of etcd, change the params.versions.latest parameter to the desired new version.

  • Submit a pull request with the changes.
