Contributing to the documentation#

The documentation of MAICoS is written in reStructuredText (rst) and uses sphinx documentation generator. In order to modify the documentation, first create a local version on your machine. Go to the MAICoS develop project page and hit the Fork button, then clone your forked branch to your machine:

git clone

Then, build the documentation from the maicos/docs folder:

tox -e docs

Then, visualise the local documentation with your favourite internet explorer (here Mozilla Firefox is used)

firefox dist/docs/index.html

Each MAICoS module contains a documentation string, or docstring. Docstrings are processed by Sphinx and autodoc to generate the documentation. If you created a new module with a doctring, you can add it to the documentation by modifying the toctree in the index.rst file.
