That's awesome, thanks for that!

Regarding the gulpfile: Gulp is some kind of JS toolkit for task automation: https://gulpjs.com/

When we talked on IRC about this I mentioned you can do a live preview of the UI, that uses Gulp as well: https://docs.antora.org/antora-ui-default/build-preview-ui/#build-continuously - unfortunately that's about all I know about it, I have no idea how it actually works, I just remembered seeing it in the UI docs.

Hi,

I was looking at whether Antora could automatically generate pages when
the source change so that previewing while modifying docs would be
somewhat easier. (One does not need to re-run ./preview.sh, but
./build.sh must be re-run after each change.)

I'd filed a ticket upstream and was directed to this discussion:
https://gitlab.com/antora/antora/issues/329

It seems to be a WIP, and for the moment there's a way to do this. It
uses a gulpfile(?) however, and I don't know enough to figure out how to
make this work with our workflow. Would someone know?

Also, as a hack in the meantime, if you use vim, you can re-run the
./build.sh script each time a buffer is saved using "BufWritePost". So
something like this in your .vimrc would work:

augroup fedora_docs
    autocmd!
    autocmd BufWritePost *adoc !./build.sh
augroup END

There's a caveat, though---you must start vim in the project root where
./build.sh resides. I'm sure there's a way to detect the project root
and find ./build.sh and put the output into the quickfix list etc, but
I've not gotten down to writing a full plugin yet. :)

Add fugitive to the mix etc., and you don't need to exit vim while
editing docs at all:
https://github.com/tpope/vim-fugitive

Please feel free to improve on this and share them with everyone. Your
friends in the vim documentation are:

: help augroup
: help autocmd
: help BufWritePost


My rather messy vimrc is here for reference:
