View The Live Example

If iru is of use to you, please consider giving us a 🌟. It makes our night sky better. Thanks.

Setup

Setup is really easy with iru. You can copy and paste this example and will only need to change the title and window.$iru object.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
    <title>Example</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/iru/css/dark.css">
</head>
<body>
    <script>
        window.$iru = {
            name: "Posts", //Title for the site
            posts: ["example"], //The name(s) of all your .md files
            hash: true //Should the url for posts utilize a hash 
            //e.g yourdomain.com/#post or not - becoming yourdomain.com/post.
        }
    </script>
    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/iru@1.0.5/build/iru.min.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Example

You can view the example live here. Alternatively, you may view all the code for yourself in the example/ directory.

Options

Defined below are the various keys you may set to customize iru within the window.$iru object.

Key Default Description
name "Posts" The header/title of the posts page.
posts false An array containing all the names of your .md files with the post content in them - without the .md extension.
hash true Should the url for posts utilize a hash e.g yourdomain.com/#post or not - becoming yourdomain.com/post. If you choose not to use a hash because it looks nicer, you'll need to configure your web server correctly.
root "/" What is the root path (minus the domain and directory) of your posts site? If it's the index, leave it at /. However, if for example it's in a HTML file named posts, set it to "/posts.html".
preview_length 256 What is the maximum length of a post preview?

Roadmap

  • Render post list on the server - for better SEO.

Configure your web server

If you want to send links to posts without a hash, set the key "hash" to false in the window.$iru object - you'll also have to configure your web server properly...

Nginx

  1. In your server block, add try_files $uri /index.html =404;

  2. Reload nginx

Apache

  1. Ensure you have libapache2-mod-php installed

  2. Rename your index.html to index.php

  3. Add to the beginning of your index.php

  4. In your VirtualHost tag, add ErrorDocument 404 /index.php

  5. Restart Apache
