Some pre-requisites are needed to build the guides. If you are using a Linux operating system you can generate a report of missing local requirements with the
$ tox -e bindep
All guides are in the RST format. You can use
tox to prepare virtual environment and build all guides (HTML only):
$ tox -e docs
You can also build a specific guide.
For example, to build OpenStack End User Guide, use the following command:
$ tox -e build -- user-guide
You can find the root of the generated HTML documentation at:
To build a specific guide with a PDF file, add a
$ tox -e build -- user-guide --pdf

If you get this message make: xelatex: No such file or directory it means your local environment does not have LaTeX installed. Read Getting LaTeX for instructions.
Testing of changes and building of the manual
Install the Python tox package and run
tox from the top-level directory to use the same tests that are done as part of the OpenStack CI jobs.
If you like to run individual tests, run:
tox -e checkbuild- to actually build the manual
tox -e checklang- to build translated manuals
tox -e checkniceness- to run the niceness tests
tox -e linkcheck- to run the tests for working remote URLs
tox command uses the openstack-doc-tools package to run the tests.
