Pico File Prefixes
This is the repository of Pico's official file prefixes plugin.
Pico is a stupidly simple, blazing fast, flat file CMS. See http://picocms.org/ for more info.
PicoFilePrefixes removes file prefixes (e.g. date identifiers) from page URLs. For example, the blog article
content/blog/20160707.visit-us-on-github.md normally corresponds to the page URL http://example.com/pico/blog/20160707.visit-us-on-github, however, by installing this plugin, the article will be accessible through the much more user-friendly URL http://example.com/pico/blog/visit-us-on-github. This makes organizing your website's pages on the filesystem easier than ever before.
You can either install
PicoFilePrefixes using Composer, or using a single PHP plugin file. We recommend you to use Composer whenever possible, because it allows you to keep the plugin up-to-date way more easily.
If you use a Composer-based installation of Pico and want to either remove or install
PicoFilePrefixes, simply open a shell on your server and navigate to Pico's install directory (e.g.
composer remove phrozenbyte/pico-file-prefixes to remove
PicoFilePrefixes, or run
composer require phrozenbyte/pico-file-prefixes (via Packagist.org) to install
If you really want to install
PicoFilePrefixes using a single PHP plugin file, download the latest release and upload the
PicoFilePrefixes.php file to the
plugins directory of your Pico installation (e.g.
PicoFilePrefixes requires Pico 2.0+
The plugin recursively drops file prefixes of all files in the
content/blog/ directory by default. You can specify other directories by altering the
PicoFilePrefixes.dirs config variables (both expect YAML lists) in your
config/config.php. The former parses all files of a directory recursively (i.e. including all its subfolders), whereas the latter parses just files in this particular directory. The default configuration looks like the following:
PicoFilePrefixes: recursiveDirs: - blog dirs: 
If you want to additionally enable the plugin for the
content/showcase/ directory, try the following configuration:
PicoFilePrefixes: recursiveDirs: - blog - showcase dirs: 
If you want to enable the plugin for any folder, try the following:
PicoFilePrefixes: recursiveDirs: - . dirs: 
To enable the plugin for pages in the
content/misc/ directory only (i.e. not including subfolders like
content/misc/sub/), try the following:
PicoFilePrefixes: recursiveDirs:  dirs: - misc
