How to create a live system to work on the documentation¶
There are several ways how to setup your development environment, here are the currently used once by the testing team:
For now here is the link to Trevor's vagrant box setup, this might be merged here in the future!
Manual setup for WSL and toolbox¶
Create a WSL machine like described here, make sure to give it a name like
- Make sure you have
toolboxinstalled on your system
- Create a toolbox
toolbox create rocky-wiki(on Rocky Linux 8 and 9 machines this will create either a Rocky Linux 8 or 9 toolbox container)
Container setup for both¶
dnf -y updateto update the system
dnf -y install git python39-pipto install Python 3.9 and pip (Python 3.9 is default for Rocky Linux 9, the package is called
python3.9 -m pip install -U pipto update pip
- Clone the repo
git clone <path-to-git-project>
- And get into the folder of the repo
- Sometimes you will need to switch the branch here
- Install all the requirements of the repo
python3.9 -m pip install -r requirements.txt
- If you just want to look at the output run
mkdocs serve 2>&1 | tee ./mkdocs.serve.log
To develop then, the easiest way is to use VS Code with the Remote - WSL, where you have to open the repo in the container (click on the Remote symbol on the lower left, 'Open folder in WSL...').
For toolbox just place the repo inside your user profile and you will be able to access it with VS Code inside and outside of the toolbox container.
And finally run
mkdocs serve 2>&1 | tee ./mkdocs.serve.log in the terminal of this VS Code session. Then you are ready to start changing stuff!
From the root of this repository on a machine with Docker installed, run
When the container finishes starting up, you can access the documentation in your web browser at http://localhost:8000.
