This is completely true, at the Doceng we are aware of this problem and we
are working on a solution. In this patch[1] each document would be handled
as an unit. What this means? This means that you can enter the folder and
execute “asciidoctor [name-of-the-document]”. Usually “asciidoctor

So, when this patch will be merged, you will have three options to build
the documents:

1. Build the complete documentation.
2. Build only the document that you touched.
3. Use a plugin in any IDE to see in realtime the changes. In my case (with
this patch[1] applied to my local) I used Visual Studio Code with this
plugin [2]

And, what can you do in the meantime? Well… you can continue using the
documentation as is. Or you can use AsciiDoctorLive[3].

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Bye! Hope this helps.

PS: I have an email to answer about recording some videos to help people to
see how to configure the tools. I’ll answer it this weekend :)
