Building output using Ant

You can build output by using an Ant build script to provide the DITA-OT parameters.


  1. Open a command prompt or terminal session, and then change to the directory where the DITA Open Toolkit is installed.
  2. Issue the following command:
    Linux or macOS  bin/ant -f build-script target
    Windows bin\ant -f build-script target
    • build-script is name of the Ant build script.
    • target is an optional switch that specifies the name of the Ant target that you want to run.

      If you do not specify a target, the value of the @default attribute for the Ant project is used.
