md2confluence

Update confluence pages from your markdown files (like a README.md)

How to use it

Install the package

You can safely install it as a global package:

npm install -g md2confluence

This will allow you to use the command md2confluence anywhere.

But, it's intended to development environments and I recommend to install it as dev dependency:

npm install --save-dev md2confluence

...and excecuting it as a npm script.

Create the .md2confluence-rc file

It's mandatory. It looks like:

{
  "baseUrl": "https://my.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api",
  "user": "my-user (Optional)",
  "pass": "my-password (Optional)",
  "prefix": "This document is automatically generated. Please don't edit it directly!",
  "pages": [
    {
      "pageid": "37748761",
      "mdfile": "README.md",
      "title": "Optional title in the confluence page"
    },
    ...
  ]
}

Basic Settings

Key Description
baseUrl the Atlassian API url of confluence
user your confluence username. If you don't set any it will be prompt it
pass your confluence password. If you don't set any it will be prompt it
prefix OPTIONAL - a general information that is included at the top of the confluence page
pages a list of objects with the pages do you want to update

Each page object can define the following key value pairs.

Page Settings

Key Description
pageid the page ID of the confluence page to update (How to get Confluence page ID)
mdfile The path to the file in Markdown format with the content to update the page. It's relative to the dir where you run the command.
title the page title, if skipped the already defined page title will be kept.

Use Environmental Variables to store username and password

If you wish to not use the config file to store your username and password, you may also use your Environmental Variables to do so. The name of the environmental variables must be as below:

Username = $MD2CUSER
Password = $MD2CPASS

Excecute as a node app

You can use the command in the working directory (if it was installed globally):

md2confluence

Or execute it from your node_modules in your working directory (installed locally):

node_modules/.bin/md2confluence

Or you can add this like a npm script in your package.json (recommended if it was installed as devDependencies):

{
  ...
  "scripts": {
    "pushdoc": "md2confluence"
  },
  ...
}
