Scrapy documentation quick start guide
======================================
This file provides a quick guide on how to compile the Scrapy documentation.
Setup the environment
---------------------
To compile the documentation you need the following Python libraries:
* Sphinx
* docutils
* jinja
If you have setuptools available the following command will install all of them
(since Sphinx requires both docutils and jinja)::
easy_install Sphinx
Compile the documentation
-------------------------
To compile the documentation (to classic HTML output) run the following command
from this dir::
make html
Documentation will be generated (in HTML format) inside the ``build/html`` dir.
View the documentation
----------------------
To view the documentation run the following command::
make htmlview
This command will fire up your default browser and open the main page of your
(previously generated) HTML documentation.
Start over
----------
To cleanup all generated documentation files and start from scratch run::
make clean
Keep in mind that this command won't touch any documentation source files.
