Troubleshooting Tips

Previewing Documents Locally

It is often desirable to preview nbdev generated documentation locally before having it built and rendered by GitHub Pages. This requires you to run Jekyll locally, which requires installing Ruby and Jekyll. Instructions on how to install Jekyll are provided on Jekyll's site. You can run the command

make docs_serve
from the root of your repo to serve the documentation locally after calling
to generate the docs.

In order to allow you to run Jekyll locally this project contains manifest files, called Gem files, that specify all Ruby dependencies for Jekyll & nbdev. If you do not plan to preview documentation locally, you can choose to delete

from your nbdev project (for example, after creating a new repo from this template).
