Building the documentation locally

1. Install Python.

If you are using MacOS, you probably already have a version of Python installed on your machine. You can verify this by running the following command.

python --version Python 2.7.2

If your version of Python is Python 2.x.x, you also need to install Python3. This is because the PDF plugin only supports Python3. Follow the instructions on this guide to install Python3 properly.

Once you are done, you will have two versions of Python on your machine; a version of python2 and a version of python3.

2. Install Pip.

Pip is most likely installed by default. However, you may need to upgrade pip to the latest version:

pip install --upgrade pip

If pip is not already installed on your machine, download to install pip for the first time. Then run the following command to install it:


3. Install pip packages

pip install mkdocs

pip install mkdocs-material

pip install markdown-include

pip install pymdown-extensions

4. Run mkdocs

Clone this GitHub repository.

Navigate to the branch you want and the directory you want. For example, cd docs-ei/en/micro-integrator/ in the 7.1.0 branch. Then run the following command:

mkdocs serve --dirtyreload
