Category archive plugin for Jekyll

Generate a category archive like MovableType does.

This code is based on following hacks:

Installation

To use this plugin,

  • Place the file category_archive_plugin.rb into _plugins directory of Jekyll site working directory.

  • Copy _layouts/category_archive.html into _layouts directory of Jekyll site working directory, then edit it appropriately.

Parameter configuration

Archive layout can be specified by layout key in the category_archive site configuration. Default is category_archive.

Archive generation directory prefix can be specified by path key in the category_archive site configuration. If specified, archive will be generated in PATH/CATEGORY/index.html, where PATH is substituted by path, CATEGORY is the category the archive for. Default is null string.

If the slugify key is set to true, then category URLs will be slugified. ie: the url for "My Category" will be 'categories/my-category' not 'categories/My%20Category'

Liquid variables for template

page.category contains the category name.

Linking to a category archive

This plugin provides the custom liquid block tag, categorylink, which can be used to render a link to a category's archive. For example:

{% categorylink foo %}This is a link to foo{% endcategorylink %}

Would create a link to the category archive of foo with the content "This is a link to foo". In addition, if the name of a variable is specified instead of a category, the variable will be expanded every time the tag block is rendered.
