md-directory

1.0.2 • Public • Published

md-directory

npm version build status stability

Convert a directory of Markdown files to HTML.

Uses the commonmark Markdown renderer and the gray-matter frontmatter parser.

Install

Install with npm:

npm install --save md-directory

or, if using Yarn:

yarn add md-directory

Usage

Given a directory posts with a file hi.md:

---
title: foo
---
# bar
var md = require('md-directory')
md.parseDirSync('./posts')

returns:

{
  "hi.md": {
    "data": {
      "title": "foo"
    },
    "content": "<h1>bar</h1>\n"
  }
}

Since version 1.0, md-directory no longer supports the extensions option since it was dropped by read-directory.

Inlining results with Browserify

Use transform.js to convert calls to md-directory methods into the contents they return. It is highly recommended that you use the synchronous methods md.parseDirSync and md.parseSync with Browserify.

Source

var path = require('path')
var md = require('md-directory')
var contents = md.parseDirSync(path.join(__dirname, 'posts'))

Browserify

browserify index.js -t md-directory/transform -o bundle.js 

Output

var contents = {"hi":{"data":{"title":"foo"},"content":"<h1>bar</h1>\n"}};

Note: to use this transform, the path to the file directory can not be a variable. If you use the async methods, the callback must be an ES5 function (not an ES6 arrow function) and the results will be inlined with process.nextTick. See brfs for more details on this behavior.
