Build locally


The only dependency required is CommandBox. Ensure that commandbox is installed and that the box command is in your path.

Building the static documentation output

The purpose of the structure of the documentation is to allow a human readable and editable form of documentation that can be built into multiple output formats. At present, we have an "HTML" builder and a "Dash docs" builder, found at ./builders/html and ./builders/dash that will build the documentation website and dash docset respectively. The source of the documentation can be found in the ./docs folder.

To run the build, execute the or build.bat script found in the root of the project, i.e.


Once this has finished, you should find ./builds/html and ./builds/dash directories with the website content / dash docsets built.

Running a server locally

We have provided a utility server who's purpose is to run locally to help while developing/writing the documentation. To start it up, execute the or serve.bat script found in the root of the project, i.e.


This will spin up a server using CommandBox on port 4040 and open it in your browser. You should also see a tray icon that will allow you to stop the server. Changes to the source docs should trigger an internal rebuild of the documentation tree which may take a little longer than regular requests to the documentation.

When running locally there are the following urls available


There is a lot of work to do and we appreciate contribution in all forms. The issues list can be found and expanded upon here:

Ask questions or post suggestions over on the Lucee mailing List under the documentation category.
