Jekyll Pages Directory Plugin

Defines a _pages directory for page files which routes its contents relative to the project root.

Jekyll does a great job of keeping things tidy until you have more than a couple static pages. Unlike posts, which are nicely contained within the _posts directory, page data and containing subdirectories end up scattered throughout the project root. Jekyll Pages Directory helps keep your project root clean by defining a _pages directory in which to store page data.

Installation

Simply copy _plugins/jekyll-pages-directory.rb into your project's _plugins directory.

Usage

By default, the plugin defines _pages as the directory for your page data.

To specify another directory instead, set the pages configuration option just like you would set source, plugins, or layouts.

# _config.yml

pages: ./_static_pages

Only page files should be stored in the _pages directory. Other file types will not behave as expected.

Output Routing

Files in _pages are routed relative to your project root, so _pages/foo/bar.html will be output to _site/foo/bar.html.

index.html

Some Jekyll functions require that the main index.html be present in the project root, so it should remain there and not be moved into _pages.

Compatibility

Jekyll Pages Directory should work with any plugin that is not accessing page data files directly, but only limited compatibility testing has been done.

If you encounter an issue, please submit a pull request or bug report through the Github issue tracker.
