jekyll-dss

Auto-generate style documentation from your CSS using Jekyll and DSS.

This project is small template for creating a style guide or pattern library or style documentation or whatever you want to call it. It uses DSS to parse JSDoc style comments in your CSS and then uses Jekyll to build the page.

Quick Start

  1. npm install
  2. grunt dss
  3. jekyll serve

More details

DSS

Document your CSS with JSDoc style comments using DSS. You can use CSS, Sass, Less, Stylus, whatever you want. Sass compilation is built into Jekyll, so that is what this example project is using.

Example:

/**
	* @name Buttons
	* @description This is an example of a button
	* @markup
	* <button class="button">Button</button>
*/
.button {}

Config DSS Grunt task

Update the dss task in the Gruntfile.js to point at your documented stylesheets. The destination should be the _data folder so Jekyll can read when rendering.

Example:

dss: {
	build: {
		files: {
			"_data/styles.json": "_sass/**.*"
		}
	}
}

Build the DSS JSON files

Run grunt dss

Update the templates

The table of contents is found in _includes/table-of-contents.html and the template for each block is in _includes/component.html. The basic data for a block is:

{
	"name": "Buttons",
	"description": "This is an example of a button",
	"markup": {
		"example": "<button class=\"button\">Button</button>",
		"escaped": "&lt;button class=\"button\"&gt;Button&lt;/button&gt;"
	}
}

You can access it in Jekyll with code like:

<h2>{{ block.name }}</h2>
<p>{{ block.description }}</p>

<h3>Example</h3>
<div>{{ block.markup.example }}</div>

Run Jekyll

jekyll server

And that's all!
