Although documentation for the OpenFF Evaluator is readily available online, it is sometimes useful to build a local version such as when
developing new pages which you wish to preview without having to wait for ReadTheDocs to finish building.
debugging errors which occur when building on ReadTheDocs.
In these cases, the docs can be built locally by doing the following:
git clone https://github.com/openforcefield/openff-evaluator.git cd openff-evaluator conda env create --name openff-evaluator-docs --file devtools/conda-envs/docs_env.yaml conda activate openff-evaluator-docs rm -rf docs/api docs/_build/html && sphinx-build -b html -j auto docs docs/_build/html
The above will yield a new directory named docs/_build which will contain the built html files which can be viewed in your local browser.
