The GENI Developer Docs (Source Code)

This is the source tree for the documentation for the GENI platform − a platform sponsored by the National Science Foundation and in partnership with Mozilla Ignite. These docs can be viewed in HTML and PDF form at: Read The Docs.

Building Locally

These docs were written in ReStructured Text, and can be built with Sphinx. To build the docs, you'll need a python installation and easy_install. Once you have those, you can install sphinx:

$ easy_install -U Sphinx

And when you're done with that, clone this repository to a local directory and cd into it. From there:

$ make html

You'll see something similar to:

'sphinx-build' -b html -d build/doctrees   source build/html

build succeeded.

Build finished. The HTML pages are in build/html.


The source/ directory is where the source-form of the docs are kept. Since we're using sphinx, the format of the docs are in Restructured Text, a popular markup language.

The build form of the docs end up in build, which is ignored by git due to the .gitignore file.
