Writing Docs

Documentation is stored under the docs docs/ directory in the backend repository. Documentation built using MkDocs. Documentation is written using Markdown. Check out the MkDocs documentation for more information.

Building the Docs Site Locally

  1. Install the docs dependencies


    We recommend creating a python virtual environment to install the documentation requirements in.

    make docs/install
  2. Run the documentation service.

    make docs/serve
  3. Navigate to http://localhost:8000 to view the docs site.

Adding new pages

  1. Create a new markdown file under docs/
  2. Add your new file under the "nav" section in mkdocs.yml in the project root directory.
