Working on Envoy Gateway Docs

This section tells the development of Envoy Gateway Documents.

The documentation for the Envoy Gateway lives in the site/content/en directory. Any individual document can be written using Markdown.

Documentation Structure

We supported the versioned Docs now, the directory name under docs represents the version of docs. The root of the latest site is in site/content/en/latest. This is probably where to start if you’re trying to understand how things fit together.

Note that the new contents should be added to site/content/en/latest and will be cut off at the next release. The contents under site/content/en/v0.5.0 are auto-generated, and usually do not need to make changes to them, unless if you find the current release pages have some incorrect contents. If so, you should send a PR to update contents both of site/content/en/latest and site/content/en/v0.5.0.

You can access the website which represents the current release in default, and you can access the website which contains the latest version changes in Here or at the footer of the pages.

Documentation Workflow

To work with the docs, just edit Markdown files in site/content/en/latest, then run

make docs

This will create site/public with the built HTML pages. You can preview it by running:

make docs-serve

If you want to generate a new release version of the docs, like v0.6.0, then run

make docs-release TAG=v0.6.0

This will update the VERSION file at the project root, which records current release version, and it will be used in the pages version context and binary version output. Also, this will generate new dir site/content/en/v0.6.0, which contains docs at v0.6.0 and updates artifact links to v0.6.0 in all files under site/content/en/v0.6.0/user, like, and etc.

Publishing Docs

Whenever docs are pushed to main, CI will publish the built docs to GitHub Pages. For more details, see .github/workflows/docs.yaml.
