About OMNeT++ Documentation and Tutorials

This repository contains a GitHub Pages based web site that contains tutorials for OMNeT++. The site is made available online at

Web pages in the repo are in Markdown format (.md). One way to view them in the browser is to install a Markdown plugin into the browser; there are such plugins both for Chrome and for Firefox. Another way is to run the Jekyll-based GitHub Pages infrastructure on your local system, and connect to it from your browser -- this is the recommended way if you'd like to contribute.

To install a local GitHub Pages development environment:

First, make sure you have a working Docker environment. If you are on Ubuntu, DO NOT INSTALL Docker from the default repository, as it is out of date. Rather, follow the instructions on,

Then, add yourself into the docker group. That will allow you to run docker commands without sudo. (Replace YOU with your login name.) Note that you may need to log out and log in again for the changes to take effect.

$ sudo usermod -a -G docker YOU

Then, pull the preconfigured GitHub Pages docker image:

$ docker pull madduci/docker-github-pages

Then run the jekyll server with the following command:

$ ./start_local_server

Open your browser on http://localhost:4000/

In case of problems, contact us.
