Scrapy documentation quick start guide

This file provides a quick guide on how to compile the Scrapy documentation.

Setup the environment

To compile the documentation you need Sphinx Python library. To install it and all its dependencies run the following command from this dir

pip install -r requirements.txt

Compile the documentation

To compile the documentation (to classic HTML output) run the following command from this dir:

make html

Documentation will be generated (in HTML format) inside the build/html dir.

View the documentation

To view the documentation run the following command:

make htmlview

This command will fire up your default browser and open the main page of your (previously generated) HTML documentation.

Start over

To cleanup all generated documentation files and start from scratch run:

make clean

Keep in mind that this command won't touch any documentation source files.

make watch
