pip3 install megengine -f https://megengine.org.cn/whl/mge.html
Make sure you have cloned MegBrain
git clone email@example.com:brain-sdk/MegBrain.git
Run gen_docs/entry.sh to generate HTML files. The script accepts the MegEngine installation and MegBrain clone path as the argument.
./gen_docs/entry.sh $MGB_ROOT $MGE_ROOT(optional)
