The jq website, manpages and some of the tests are generated from this directory. The directory holds a Bonsai website, and the manual is a YAML file in content/3.manual.

To build the documentation (including building the jq manpage), you'll need a working Ruby setup. The easiest way to get one is to install RVM and Ruby 1.9.3 like so:

\curl -L | bash -s stable --ruby=1.9.3

After that finishes installing, you'll need to make sure RVM is on your path by doing source $HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm, or just opening a new shell. See for more info on RVM.

Once RVM is installed, you can install all the dependencies for jq's documentation build by running this from the docs directory:

bundle install

When bundle manages to install the dependencies, rerun ./configure in the jq root directory and then the Makefile will be able to generate the jq manpage.
