SimFactory has an incomplete user guide in the doc/userguide directory. This is developed using Sphinx, which is a Python framework for writing documentation. You need to install sphinx to generate this documentation. This can be done using something similar to the following:
export PYTHONPATH=/home/ianhin/software/python export PATH=/home/ianhin/software/python/:$PATH hash -r easy_install --install-dir ~/software/python sphinx
Then go into the simfactory/doc/userguide directory and type:
./autogen make html
to generate HTML documentation (type just "make" to see the other possible targets like PDF etc).
This should be regenerated on any commit to the SimFactory/doc/userguide directory and copied to a web-accessible location for inclusion on simfactory.org.
