Table of contents in your Markdown documents

You have the ability to generate a table of content list for your document. Simply place the following code into your document and a table of contents will appear there magically:

<div class="toc-list"></div>

If you want, you can customize the behavior of the toc list as well. You can define the text of the headline using the attribute data-headline and you can define the max depth of headlines you want to include into the list with the attribute data-depth:

<div class="toc-list" data-depth="1" data-headline="Awesome table of contents"></div>

Algolia Search Configuration

The search is powered by Algolia. Configuration is done via kernel Parameters in app/config/sculpin_kernel.yml:

# app/config/sculpin_kernel.yml
  application_id: 'MYAPPLICATION'
  index_name:     'developers.shopware.com_prod'

The API Key should be provided via the environment variable SYMFONY__ALGOLIA_API_KEY. To enable the search, the environment variable SYMFONY__ALGOLIA_ENABLED also must exist.


These variables are automatically exported during the Travis-CI build for every merge/commit on the master branch.
