Building with mdbook

This book is built with mdbook. You can install it by running cargo install mdbook.

If you want to build it locally you can run one of these two commands in the root directory of the repository:

  • mdbook build

    Builds static html pages as output and place them in the /book directory by default.

  • mdbook serve

    Serves the book at http://localhost:3000 (port is changeable, take a look at the terminal output to be sure) and reloads the browser when a change occurs.
