metalsmith-markdown-partials

This Metalsmith plugin enables the use of Markdown partials, e.g. Markdown fragments can be inserted into the contents section of a page markdown file via an include marker.

{{md "<file name>.md" }}

This allows for modular markdown and promotes reuse of markdown partials.

Page Markdown File

A markdown file that will be transformed into an html file via a template

Markdown Partials

A markdown file to be inserted into a Page Markdown file

Markdown partials are located in a separate directory, for example /library/. This directory should be located in /dev/content/ and ignored by the Metalsmith process. This can be done using metalsmith-ignore.

Partial markdown files have the extention .md. A markdown partial file does NOT have frontmatter metadata, only the markdown to be inserted into a page markdown file.

The markdown partials directory's default location is './dev/content/library/'. The partials directory can be set via the libraryPath option.

Example to ignore partial markdown files:

var ignore = require('metalsmith-ignore');
...
// ignore partial markdown files in library
.use(ignore([
  'library/*'
  ]))
...

Install

$ npm install --save metalsmith-markdown-partials

Usage

var mdPartials = require('metalsmith-markdown-partials');

...
.use(mdPartials({"libraryPath": './dev/content/library/'}))
...
