Make sure to follow the following rules:
- Static Documentation Generation: The focus is on documentation, not on static site generators. Those are already covered by StaticGen.
- Open Source: The generator must have a public repository on Github that we can link to and pull in stats from.
- Stick to the format: Fill out all the same fields as the other static site generators in
- Short description: Keep all the details for the body text, keep the description for the overview page short and sweet.
DocBuilds is built with Middleman. To install and run locally:
git clone https://github.com/plaindocs/docbuilds.git cd docbuilds bundle install bundle exec middleman
You'll run into GitHub's API limits very quickly if you just do this. To avoid this we recommend you create a Github API token with permissions to access public repositories and Gist.
Then create a Gist with a single file
Then set these environment variables before running middleman:
export GITHUB_TOKEN=YOUR_TOKEN export GIST_ID=ID_OF_YOUR_GIST
Then middleman will use the Gist you specified to archive stats (stars, forks and issues) for the repositories.
DocBuilds is built and maintained by Plaindocs, creator of quality API documentation.
