LFE Reference Guide


This Gitbook (available here) is a conversion of Robert Virding's LFE User Guide.

Formatting Note

You will see code blocks in this book surrounded by double curly braces, {{ ... }}. This typographic convention is used to denote optional syntax.

Building it yourself

The conversion from Markdown into HTML pages etc. is done via the gitbook-cli npm package.


The Makefile has a setup target that tries to install the two needed node.js packages. This works on Unbuntu and hopefully on other Unix-like systems.

You will also need Node.js installed.

Viewing the book

Once that is all set up, run make build to convert the book into HTML pages (they will be output in the _book subdirectory) or make run to start a server showing the converted pages (this will automatically update as you edit the files).
