Help a beginner to build the asciidoc docs :-D

(Jens Madsen) #1

Dear All

I am new to elasticsearch. I want to use the most recent version and I am therefore looking for the most updated version of the "Elasticsearch: The Definitive Guide". I have cloned the repo but when I try to build it I get the following error message:

Building HTML from README.asciidoc

Error executing: a2x -v --icons -d book -f chunked -a showcomments=1 -a lang=en -a base_edit_url= -a root_dir=/home/yolen/tools/elastic/docs --xsl-file resources/website_chunked.xsl --asciidoc-opts -fresources/es-asciidoc.conf --destination-dir=/home/yolen/tools/elastic/docs/html_docs --xsltproc-opts --stringparam toc.max.depth '5' --xsltproc-opts --stringparam toc.section.depth '0' --xsltproc-opts --stringparam chunk.section.depth '0' --xsltproc-opts --stringparam 'test build' --xsltproc-opts --stringparam '0' --xsltproc-opts --stringparam '' --xsltproc-opts --stringparam 'Docs/' /home/yolen/tools/elastic/docs/README.asciidoc 

  File "/home/yolen/tools/elastic/docs/resources/asciidoc-8.6.8/a2x", line 76
    print '%s: %s' % (PROG,msg)
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Any help on this is greatly appreciated

The most recent version is automatically published on

You don't have to build it yourself unless you are planning to contribute into it.
