The source code repository for the '''ConTeXt reference manual''' and
'''ConTeXt: an excursion''' is kept at
{{Domain|}}. This article
explains how to access the source code.
== The contents of the repository ==
There are three directories at the top level of the repository:
* `context-beginners` contains the code for ''ConTeXt: an excursion'', the beginners' manual.
* `context-reference` contains the code for the ''ConTeXt reference manual''.
* `context-commands` contains a proof-of-concept for a command reference based on Lua tables. This project is not currently active.
Each manual's directory contains a Makefile; to build the PDF, the following should suffice (''mutatis mutandis'').
cd context-reference
''ConTeXt: an excursion'' is available in several languages, stored in `context-beginners/en/`, `context-beginners/fr/`, etc. A number of extra `make` targets are available:
make en # make only the english screen and print versions
make fr-screen # make only the french screen version
== Getting the source code ==
The source code is stored and managed using Subversion. For more information, see the [[Subversion]] article on this wiki.
