The build command
The build command is used to render your book:
It will try to parse your
SUMMARY.md file to understand the structure of your book
and fetch the corresponding files.
The rendered output will maintain the same directory structure as the source for convenience. Large books will therefore remain structured when rendered.
Specify a directory
build command can take a directory as argument to use instead of the
current working directory.
mdbook build path/to/book
When you use the
-o) option, mdbook will open the rendered book in
your default web browser after building it.
-d) option allows you to change the output directory for your book.
note: make sure to run the build command in the root directory and not in the source directory
