Reader Error: 'Shared Library' is not defined when running './mach build-docs'
STR: ./mach build-docs Result: BuildReaderError: ============================== ERROR PROCESSING MOZBUILD FILE ============================== The error occurred while processing the following file: /home/ahal/hg/mozilla-central/accessible/interfaces/ia2/moz.build The error was triggered on line 7 of this file: SharedLibrary('IA2Marshal') An error was encountered as part of executing the file itself. The error appears to be the fault of the script. The error as reported by Python is: ["NameError: name 'SharedLibrary' is not defined\n"] File "/home/ahal/hg/mozilla-central/tools/docs/mach_commands.py", line 49, in build_docs for context in reader.walk_topsrcdir(): File "/home/ahal/hg/mozilla-central/python/mozbuild/mozbuild/frontend/reader.py", line 803, in walk_topsrcdir filesystem_absolute=True, read_tiers=True): File "/home/ahal/hg/mozilla-central/python/mozbuild/mozbuild/frontend/reader.py", line 848, in read_mozbuild sys.exc_info(), sandbox_exec_error=se)
This was broken by bug 1041941.

I'm going to reopen this because generating docs from templates is hard and I want a quick win to make doc building work again.
Status: RESOLVED → REOPENED
Resolution: DUPLICATE → ---
The in-tree Sphinx docs have been broken since bug 1041941 because processing moz.build files outside their context doesn't work. Specifically, templates aren't loaded (because this information usually comes from a parent moz.build file). A new execution mode is needed. I tried to implement a proper execution mode. However, I kept running into walls. While we should strive for a proper execution mode, this can be a follow-up, tracked in bug 1058359. This patch implements extraction of Sphinx variables from ast walking. It is extremely low-level and definitely a one-off. But it solves the problem at hand: |mach build-docs| will work after this patch is applied. Reviewer notes: I feel a bit dirty for writing this code. I would really prefer a proper solution that doesn't rely on AST. However, templates made this more difficult. I know you (glandium) have more ideas for how execution should work. I figured I'd leave implementing a proper processing mode up to you.
