If you haven't used it yet, you should check out DocFX to automate your documentation generation. It's working great with .Net Core projects, is simple to use and easily customizable. It's also got a feature to link directly from your documentation to source code on GitHub, but this comes with a small catch: When running the build in Jenkins, DocFX uses an environment parameter GIT_BRANCH set by Jenkins. This leads to broken links, since the variable is, for example, origin/dev when it should only be dev. This also prevents the links from being versioned, so documentation of old versions won't have the historic source code available.
But since this being Jenkins, there's nothing we can't do to solve this! In every build, there's an environment variable GIT_COMMIT provided which, as the name suggest, is the full hash of the checked out commit.
All you need to to is run this small PowerShell script to fix links in your generated Html files:
