Including your Documentation

In your project repository

Add your documentation to your repository in the folder structure and according to the templates listed above. The documentation templates you will require are available in opnfvdocs/docs/templates/ repository, you should copy the relevant templates to your <repo>/docs/ directory in your repository. For instance if you want to document userguide, then your steps shall be as follows:

git clone ssh://<your_id>@gerrit.opnfv.org:29418/opnfvdocs.git
cp -p opnfvdocs/docs/userguide/* <my_repo>/docs/userguide/

You should then add the relevant information to the template that will explain the documentation. When you are done writing, you can commit the documentation to the project repository.

git add .
git commit --signoff --all
git review

In OPNFVDocs Composite Documentation

In toctree

To import project documents from project repositories, we use submodules.
Each project is stored in opnfvdocs/docs/submodule/ as follows:
../_images/Submodules.jpg

To include your project specific documentation in the composite documentation, first identify where your project documentation should be included. Say your project userguide should figure in the ‘OPNFV Userguide’, then:

vim opnfvdocs/docs/release/userguide.introduction.rst

This opens the text editor. Identify where you want to add the userguide. If the userguide is to be added to the toctree, simply include the path to it, example:

.. toctree::
    :maxdepth: 1

 submodules/functest/docs/userguide/index
 submodules/bottlenecks/docs/userguide/index
 submodules/yardstick/docs/userguide/index
 <submodules/path-to-your-file>

‘doc8’ Validation

It is recommended that all rst content is validated by doc8 standards. To validate your rst files using doc8, install doc8.

sudo pip install doc8

doc8 can now be used to check the rst files. Execute as,

doc8 --ignore D000,D001 <file>

Testing: Build Documentation Locally

Composite OPNFVDOCS documentation

To build whole documentation under opnfvdocs/, follow these steps:

Install virtual environment.

sudo pip install virtualenv
cd /local/repo/path/to/project

Download the OPNFVDOCS repository.

git clone https://gerrit.opnfv.org/gerrit/opnfvdocs

Change directory to opnfvdocs & install requirements.

cd opnfvdocs
sudo pip install -r etc/requirements.txt

Update submodules, build documentation using tox & then open using any browser.

cd opnfvdocs
git submodule update --init
tox -edocs
firefox docs/_build/html/index.html

Note

Make sure to run tox -edocs and not just tox.

Individual project documentation

To test how the documentation renders in HTML, follow these steps:

Install virtual environment.

sudo pip install virtualenv
cd /local/repo/path/to/project

Download the opnfvdocs repository.

git clone https://gerrit.opnfv.org/gerrit/opnfvdocs

Change directory to opnfvdocs & install requirements.

cd opnfvdocs
sudo pip install -r etc/requirements.txt

Move the conf.py file to your project folder where RST files have been kept:

mv opnfvdocs/docs/conf.py <path-to-your-folder>/

Move the static files to your project folder:

mv opnfvdocs/_static/ <path-to-your-folder>/

Build the documentation from within your project folder:

sphinx-build -b html <path-to-your-folder> <path-to-output-folder>

Your documentation shall be built as HTML inside the specified output folder directory.

Note

Be sure to remove the conf.py, the static/ files and the output folder from the <project>/docs/. This is for testing only. Only commit the rst files and related content.
