Building Documentation from Source

Follow steps to install cngi from source. Then navigate to the docs folder and execute the following:

sphinx-build -b html . ./build

View the documentation in your browser by navigating to:



>>> from ngcasa.synthesis.imaging import make_imaging_weights
>>> xds = make_imaging_weights(...)

Throughout the documentation we use the variable name xds to refer to Xarray DataSets.
xda may be used to refer to Xarray DataArrays. This is a "loose" convention only.
