Doc Docs

Documentation location

Documentation is maintained in Python docstrings throughout the code. These are imported via the autodoc Sphinx extension in docs/reference.rst. Individual stubs for user-facing classes (located in stubs) are generated automatically via sphinx-autogen. Parsl modules, classes, and methods can be cross-referenced from a docstring by enclosing it in backticks (`).

Remote builds

Builds are automatically performed by and published to upon git commits.

Local builds

To build the documentation locally, use:

$ make clean html

To view the freshly rebuilt docs, use:

$ cd _build/html
$ python3 -m http.server 8080

Once the python http server is launched, point your browser to http://localhost:8080

Regenerate module stubs

If necessary, docstring stubs can be regenerated using:

$ sphinx-autogen reference.rst
