The best way to install it is via Composer. Just add nexendrie/site-generator to your dependencies.
Just run ./vendor/bin/generate-site. The script will go through all .md files in your project's root folder (and all its subfolders) and create html pages from them and place them under public folder. Both sources and output folders can be changed:
./vendor/bin/generate-site --source=doc --output=public
Alternatively, you can write your own script. Example:
<?php declare(strict_types=1); require __DIR__ . "/vendor/autoload.php"; $source = "./sources"; $output = "./docs"; $generator = new Nexendrie\SiteGenerator\Generator($source, $output); $generator->generate(); ?>
By default, the generator ignores any .md files in folders named vendor, .git and tests. If you want to change that list, just set properties ignoredFiles and ignoredFolders on Generator instance. Bear in mind, that you are replacing the original list so you have to repeat things you want to keep. Example:
<?php declare(strict_types=1); require __DIR__ . "/vendor/autoload.php"; $source = "./sources"; $output = "./docs"; $generator = new Nexendrie\SiteGenerator\Generator($source, $output); $generator->ignoredFiles = ["abc.md"]; $generator->ignoredFolders = ["abc"]; $generator->generate(); ?>
This will ignore in any files in folder abc and files named abc.md.
If you use the command line script, pass options --ignoreFile/--ignoreFolder for every file/folder you want to ignore. Example:
./vendor/bin/generate-site --source=doc --output=public --ignoreFile=abc.md --ignoreFile=def.md --ignoreFolder=abc --ignoreFolder=def
and any file in folders abc and def and files named abc.md and def.md will be ignored.
Site generator with every source file also looks for a meta file (file with same name but extension neon). You can set there some additional information for it there, like page's title and language.
title: My page htmlLang: en
It is possible to normalize the meta info and modify the generated page based on some meta info. Just add meta normalizer to Generator via method addMetaNormalizer. The method accepts a callback. The normalizer will receive 3 parameters: meta info (as array), html code (in string) and name of currently processed file (as string). Tip: declare first 2 parameters as passed by reference so you can modify them in your function.
styles: - style.css scripts: - script.js
If you mention a local image in your page, the file will be copied to output folder.
