  • you must have the Faust source code installed. You can get it from github.

WARNING: adding new files

Be sure to add new files in the doc/docs, and not in the docs which is the folder generated by the build process.

Building the documentation

The build process is based on make located in the doc folder. Building the documentation site is based on mkdocs. To install the required components type:

To generate all these files type:

$ make install

Testing and generating

You can test the web site using the mkdoc embedded web server. This server also scan any change in the source directory and refresh the pages dynamically which is really convenient for the development process. To launch the server type:

$ make serve

When ready, you can generate the documentation web site. Type:

$ make build

The web site will be available from the docs folder at the root of the faustlibraries folder

More details on the build process:

$ make help


The docs folder at rool level contains all files that will be published. To make the current version publicly available:

  • add all the new files using git add docs
  • commit using git commit -am "message" (so new files and deleted files will be commited, except docs/CNAME file)
  • and push the commit


  • never delete the docs/CNAME file (which is mandatory for the final generated site to work)
  • in case it has been removed, restore it using git checkout docs/CNAME
