Student Robotics Volunteer Runbook

GitHub Actions

The runbook aims to be a single source for all Student Robotics internal documentation. This includes information for the Competition Team and Kit Team, as well as other activities.


To run this project locally, you'll need:

  • Python (>=3.6, <3.12)
  • pip


Installing dependencies

It's recommended to use a virtual environment:

python -m venv env

env\Scripts\activate.bat  # on windows
source env/bin/activate  # on macOS / Linux

Then, install dependencies:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Running development server

mkdocs serve

This will launch a server on http://localhost:8000. Content in the server will live-reload as changes are made. If large refactors of the site structure are made, it's advisable to stop the server, make the changes, then restart it.

Production build

mkdocs build

This will build the site once, and place it in site/ in the root of the project. This may be useful to see which files are rendered, and how exactly to access them.

Spell checking

This project uses CSpell for spell checking. Plugins are available for a variety of editors and a command line runner is available through npm:

npm install
npm run spell-check

Words that CSpell is unaware of can be added to the .spelling file.
