Date URLs Plugin for DocPad
Adds support for date based URLs to DocPad
npm install --save docpad-plugin-dateurls
The purpose of this plugin is to enable date based url paths based on the a date metadata field within a post.
Add a date yaml header to posts you would like to have a date based url
--- name: my blog post date: 2012-10-21 ---
By default dateurls will pickup documents within /documents/posts if you would like to process a different folder under documents add:
plugins: dateurls: documentPath: 'yourpath'
By default the files paths will have the file extension:
If you would like to have clean urls such as:
Pass true to the cleanurl configuration property
plugins: dateurls: cleanurl: true
When using clean urls a route will be added with the forms
If you wish to have links to the post use a trailing slash pass true to the trailingSlashes configuration property
plugins: dateurls: trailingSlashes: true
If you would like dateurls to process documents in a collection you defined yourself (instead of documents in a specific document path), you can tell the plugin which collection to use explicitly:
plugins: dateurls: collectionName: 'myCollection'
If you wish to format the date portion of the generated URL differently, you can tell the plugin which date format to use with moment explicitly:
plugins: dateurls: dateFormat: '/YYYY/MM'
