Build the documentation

This documentation is built with the Sphinx Documentation engine. The easiest way to build the documentation is with the tool nox. nox is kind-of like a Makefile, it is a way to automatically install environments and run commands locally. To build this documentation with nox, run:

pip install nox
nox -s docs

or to launch a live server that re-builds and re-loads pages as you save files:

nox -s docs -- live

Alternatively, you may build the documentation directly with Sphinx:

pip install -r doc/doc-requirements.txt
sphinx-build -b html doc doc/_build
