mkdocs-git-revision-date-localized-plugin

MkDocs plugin that enables displaying the date of the last git modification of a page. The plugin uses babel and timeago.js to provide different localized date formats. Initial fork from mkdocs-git-revision-date-plugin.

demo

(Example when used together with the mkdocs-material theme)

Other MkDocs plugins that use information from git:

Setup

Install the plugin using pip3 with the following command:

pip3 install mkdocs-git-revision-date-localized-plugin

Next, add the following lines to your mkdocs.yml:

plugins:
  - search
  - git-revision-date-localized

If you have no plugins entry in your config file yet, you'll likely also want to add the search plugin. MkDocs enables it by default if there is no plugins entry set.

The mkdocs-material theme has built in support for git-revision-date-localized and you should already see the last revision date on the bottom of your pages. See the documentation on how to fine-tune the appearance and the date format.

Note when using build environments

This plugin needs access to the last commit that touched a specific file to be able to retrieve the date. By default many build environments only retrieve the last commit, which means you might need to:

Change your CI settings
  • github actions: set fetch-depth to 0 (docs)
  • gitlab runners: set GIT_DEPTH to 0 (docs)
  • bitbucket pipelines: set clone: depth: full (docs)
