Vlad's documentation is built using mkdocs and is hosted on Read The Docs.


In order to install MkDocs you'll need Python installed on your system, as well as the Python package manager "pip". You can check if you have these already installed like so:

$ python --version
Python 2.7.2
$ pip --version
pip 1.5.2

MkDocs supports Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4.

Install the mkdocs package using pip:

$ pip install mkdocs

You should now have the mkdocs command installed on your system. Run mkdocs help to check that everything worked okay.

$ mkdocs help
mkdocs [help|new|build|serve|gh-deploy] {options}


Once installed you can build the documentation using the following command:

mkdocs build --clean

Alternatively you can build documentation using the following command:

mkdocs serve

You can then view the documentation on the URL
