Quickbook getting started

Reported by: Joel de Guzman Owned by: Joel de Guzman
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: quickbook
Version: Boost 1.34.1 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


From John:

I've just read through the quick book docs with a view to using quickbook for a type traits docs rewrite, and have some questions:

  • There's no mention of how to build a quickbook document, what goes in the jamfile etc.

(Joel: trimmed down the remaining two items; outdated)

I suppose a simple Jamfile sample could do the job:

# Configuration of documentation build for 'mylib' as a part of Boost C++ tree.

# specify project id for mylib documentation
project boost/libs/mylib/doc ;

# import Quickbook
import boostbook : boostbook ;
using quickbook ;

# specify location for custom images
path-constant images_location : html ;

# define target
boostbook quickbook

Assuming it is boost/libs/mylib/doc/Jamfile, enter boost/libs/mylib/doc directory and issue bjam command and you should similar output:

$ bjam

I'm going to mark this as a duplicate of #5985. Even though that's later as it's a bit more broad.
