Brendan pushed his latest changes to the gasp-lessons
site on launchpad
. I have my check out of gasp-lessons inside a directory named Sphinx
, that also has a virtual environment. I can now use the following process to build the course materials from within the Sphinx
- source bin/activate
- cd gasp-lessons/gasp_course
- sphinx-build source/ build/
I updated my alias list in my .bashrc file to include the following:
- alias gle='rsync -avz -e ssh --delete /home/jelkner/Projects/Sphinx/gasp-lessons/gasp_course/build/ login.ibiblio.org:obp/pybiblio/gasp/course/'
After running gle
from the command line, the Open Book Project
site now has the new version of the Gasp Lessons:
The coolest thing is the way SVG images just work now, as you can see in Sheet 3
