Building

Various manuals are in subdirectories of the doc/ directory.

Guides

All guides are in the RST format. You can use tox to prepare virtual environment and build all guides:

tox -e docs

You can also build a specific guide.

For example, to build OpenStack End User Guide, use the following command:

tox -e build -- user-guide

You can find the root of the generated HTML documentation at:

doc/user-guide/build/html/index.html

Testing of changes and building of the manual

Install the Python tox package and run tox from the top-level directory to use the same tests that are done as part of our Jenkins gating jobs.

If you like to run individual tests, run:

  • tox -e linkcheck - to run the tests for working remote URLs
  • tox -e checkniceness - to run the niceness tests
  • tox -e checkbuild - to actually build the manual
  • tox -e checklang - to build translated manuals

tox will use the openstack-doc-tools package for execution of these tests.
