Antora Site Generator With Lunr
This site generator is a copy of the default site generator that in addition produces a Lunr index that can be used in your documentation UI. Lunr provides a great search experience in your documentation site without the need for external, server-side, search services.
Antora is a modular static site generator designed for creating documentation sites from AsciiDoc documents. Its site generator pipeline aggregates documents from versioned content repositories and processes them using Asciidoctor.
Install the site generator. Open a terminal and type:
$ npm i -g antora-site-generator-lunr
When generating your documentation site, use the
$ DOCSEARCH_ENABLED=true DOCSEARCH_ENGINE=lunr NODE_PATH="$(npm -g root)" antora --generator antora-site-generator-lunr site.yml
NODE_PATH assignment is necessary to ensure Antora can locate node modules install globally.
Depending on your environment, you may find that this assignment is unnecessary.
If you've installed Antora globally using Yarn, you may need to add
"$(yarn global dir)/node_modules" to the
NODE_PATH environment variable instead.
Please read the documentation to enable the search component in your documentation UI.
When installing this generator globally (i.e.,
npm i -g), it also installs a private copy of Antora (minus the CLI).
Thus, to upgrade the copy of Antora this site generator uses, you need to reinstall this package.
Upgrading Antora alone isn't sufficient.
To upgrade this site generator and Antora, open a terminal and type the following commands:
$ npm uninstall -g antora-site-generator-lunr @antora/cli @antora/site-generator-default npm i -g antora-site-generator-lunr @antora/cli @antora/site-generator-default
These commands ensure you have the latest version of both the site generator and Antora regardless of whether you're using this site generator.
