Building your site

Building your site is the process of taking your pod (the input) and generating static files (the output). To do this, Grow analyzes all of the config files (primarily podspec.yaml and content configs), and produces a list of resources to export, and then builds them.

The grow build command will build your site and dump the generated output to a directory on your computer. Let's give it a try. The following command will build your site and dump the files to a directory build within your pod. Note that you should not check the build directory into Git.

grow build ./my-codelab/
