1# HOW TO BUILD SOURCE.ANDROID.COM #
2
3source.android.com contains tutorials, references, and miscellaneous
4information relating to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). The current
5iteration of this site is fully static HTML (notably lacking in javascript and
6doxygen content), and is and/or was maintained by skyler (illustrious intern
7under Dan Morrill and assistant to the almighty JBQ).
8
9## Short Instructions ##
10
11Run the build script, from the same directory as this file:
12
13    python scripts/build.py
14
15This generates the directory ./out, which is the fully built site. Hoorah. 
16
17The included scripts/micro-httpd.py script is helpful for testing the site on
18your own machine. Running it will start up a tiny HTTP server that you can hit
19to test changes in a browser:
20
21    cd ./out
22    HTTP_PORT=8080 python ../scripts/micro-httpd.py

24### Markdown ###
25Markdown is a very simple markup format for plain-text that converts it to
26decent HTML. Useful docs:
27http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax
28
29Yes, it was created by John Gruber himself. BWAHAHA!
30
31### Dependencies ###
32
33You need the Python markdown implementation. The original Perl impl probably
34will NOT work.
35
36For (Goo|U)buntu:
37% sudo apt-get install python-markdown
38
39For Mac:
40$ sudo easy_install ElementTree
41$ sudo easy_install Markdown
42

46### Contents Included in Box ###
47
48Necessary source files include:
49
50    src/        individual page content in markdown format
51    templates/  templates for page content
52
53and the following content which is copied directly:
54
55    assets/     stylish things that make the page look pretty
56    images/     exactly what it sounds like
57
58### Structure of Site Source ###
59
60The build script assumes that
61- Every .md file under src/ is an individual page in markdown format.
62- Each directory under src/ is a tab of source.android.com and contains its
63  particular sidebar.  Note, the sidebar in the root of site_src/ itself is
64  present but empty.
65- Please use .md if possible (because this will pick up the global site CSS
66  and layout.) But the build.py script will indeed copy arbitrary files to the
67  output dir, so it is possible to simply place .html, .pdf, and similar files
68  to the src/ tree and they will be copied directly to ./out.

75# SORDID HISTORY OF SOURCE.ANDROID.COM #
76
77Once upon a time, source.android.com used to be a site on Sites.
78Then it was rewritten to use the developer SDK docs, but this was hard to edit
79and overkill.
80Now it is as you see it.
