Yaydoc is an automated documentation generation and deployment project that generates documentation for its registered repositories on each commit and deploys it to Github Pages.


Getting started


To start using Yaydoc, make sure you have all of the following:

  • GitHub login

  • Project hosted as a repository on GitHub

  • Project containing a directory (source) containing all the markup files

    Note: For advanced configurations, include an index.rst file which contains
    toctrees to link the various documents.

To get started with Yaydoc

  1. Using your Github account, sign in to and accept the Github access permissions confirmation

  2. Once you’re signed in to Yaydoc, go to your dashboard and register the repository you want to build your documentation from.

  3. Add a .yaydoc.yml file to the root of your repository to define rules and variables for Yaydoc’s build process

  4. Add the .yaydoc.yml file to git, commit and push, to trigger the Yaydoc build process.

  5. Check the logs for your repository to see if the documentation generation and deployment process passes or fails.

    Note: Yaydoc only runs builds on the commits you push after you’ve registered your repository in Yaydoc. Ensure
    that the repository is enabled from the its settings at Yaydoc.

Known limitations

  • If you use embedded html in markdown or reStructuredText, any static content such as images, javascript referred from it should be present in a _static directory placed under source.
