Welcome to the Zephyr Project.

Thank you for your interest in the Zephyr Project. These instructions are
designed to walk you through generating the Zephyr Project's documentation.

Documentation Notes
*******************

The project's documentation currently comprises the following items:

* An Installation Guide for Linux host systems

* A set of Collaboration Guidelines for the project.

* Doxygen output from the code base for all APIs.

Installing the documentation processors
***************************************

Install the current version of ``Sphinx``, type:

.. code-block:: bash

   $ git clone https://github.com/sphinx-doc/sphinx.git sphinx

   $ cd sphinx

   $ sudo -E python setup.py install

   $ cd ..

   $ git clone https://github.com/michaeljones/breathe.git breathe

   $ cd breathe

   $ sudo -E python setup.py install

.. note::

   Make sure that ``Doxygen`` is installed in your system.
   The installation of Doxygen is beyond the scope of this document.

Running the Documentation Generators
************************************

Assuming that the Zephyr Project tree with the doc directory is in
``DIRECTORY``, type:

.. code-block:: bash

   $ cd DIRECTORY/doc

   $ make doxy html

Find the output in ``DIRECTORY/doc/_build/html/index.html``

Review the available formats with:

.. code-block:: bash

   $ make -C DIRECTORY/doc doxy html

If you want the LaTeX PDF output, you need to install all the Latex
packages first. That installation is beyond the scope of this document.
