The generateSite task is more advanced. In many cases, your goal will not be to create a single HTML document but a whole documentation website. This is where generateSite shines. It uses a static site generator to turn your document into a nice looking microsite with landing-page, local search and edit links.

Linux / WSL2 with bash
./dtcw generateSite

The output is written to build/microsite/output/index.html. You can open this file in your browser and view the results. But you will notice that some features which rely on javascript will be broken. To avoid this, use the task previewSite to start a little webserver which presents you the site without flaws.
