a general purpose template cli
npm install tpl or
npm install -g tpl
To parse a file and apply a template, simply provide the file as an argument.
This will do several things.
- Look for a
.tpldirectory in the current working directory, if none exists look for one in the parent directory, in the parent's parent directory and so on. If there's no
.tpldirectory all the way up to the root, use the default
.tplin the installation directory.
- Use the configuration defined in
- Look for a parser for the file extension (
.mkd). If none was found, use the default parser.
- Read and parse the file.
- Look if the file defined a template, which should be used for its rendering. If not, use the default rendering.
- Print the rendered document.
If you want to save the output, you can use
tpl hello-world.mkd > hello-world.html
Use custom configuration
For information on how to customize the behavior of tpl, look at the wiki.
