Installing Jekyll and Friends

First, you'll need the Jekyll static site generator installed. The full installation instructions are here, but you probaly can just do:

$ gem install jekyll

There are two other libraries to install to generate these documents:

  1. redcarpet: our preferred Ruby Markdown processor. Note: the current version of redcarpet is incompatible and won't work with jekyll so you'll need to install the specific version below:

     $ gem install redcarpet --version=1.17.2
  2. Pygments: the Python-based syntax highligher, this installation instructions for which are at the bottom of the Jekyll page above.

Once the required software is installed, generating the static site (in the _site directory) is simply running

    $ jekyll

on the commandline. In some cases you'll need to do jekyll --no-auto if Jekyll's file change watching is not working. That command will force all pages to be regenerated.

Jekyll can serve up the site on http://localhost:4000 by adding --server to the commands above.

    $ jekyll --no-auto --server

will force regeneration of the site (and turn off auto-regeneration) and start the local webserver.

Generating the API and Datamodel Docs

Run the script at the top of the repository to re-generate the API and datamodel documentation from the SMART ontology included via submodule in the smart_common directory.
