Usage

See techdocs-cli usage docs.

Development

NOTE: When we build techdocs-cli it copies the output techdocs-cli-embedded-app bundle into the packages/techdocs-cli/dist which is then published with the @techdocs/cli npm package.

Running

# From the root of this repository run
# NOTE: This will build the techdocs-cli-embedded-app and copy the output into the cli dist directory
yarn workspace @techdocs/cli build

# Now execute the binary
packages/techdocs-cli/bin/techdocs-cli

# ... or as a shell alias in ~/.zshrc or ~/.zprofile or ~/.bashrc or similar
export PATH=/path/to/backstage/packages/techdocs-cli/bin:$PATH

If you want to test live test changes to the packages/techdocs-cli-embedded-app you can serve the app and run the CLI using the following commands:

# Open a shell to the techdocs-cli-embedded-app directory
cd packages/techdocs-cli-embedded-app

# Run the techdocs-cli-embedded-app using dev mode
yarn start

# In another shell use the techdocs-cli from the root of this repo
yarn techdocs-cli:dev [...options]

Connecting behind a proxy

# Prior to executing the techdocs-cli command
export GLOBAL_AGENT_HTTPS_PROXY=${HTTP_PROXY}
export GLOBAL_AGENT_NO_PROXY=${NO_PROXY}

Using an example docs project

For the purpose of local development, we have created an example documentation project. You are of course also free to create your own local test site - all it takes is a docs/index.md and an mkdocs.yml in a directory.

cd packages/techdocs-cli/src/example-docs

# To get a view of your docs in Backstage, use:
techdocs-cli serve

# To view the raw mkdocs site (without Backstage), use:
techdocs-cli serve:mkdocs

Testing

E2E tests

Running unit tests requires mkdocs to be installed locally:

pip install mkdocs
pip install mkdocs-techdocs-core

Then run yarn test.
