typedoc-plugin-404: Create a 404 Page for TypeDoc Generated Docs

npm version pipeline status

GitLab | GitHub

This plugin generates a 404.html at the root of the documents generated by TypeDoc. 404.html is a location for storing the 404 page that are recognized by web hosts such as GitHub Pages and GitLab Pages.

Install

npm install --save-dev @8hobbies/typedoc-plugin-404

Usage

Pass --plugin @8hobbies/typedoc-plugin-404 when invoking the typedoc command:

typedoc --plugin @8hobbies/typedoc-plugin-404

Or add the plugin to your typedoc.json file:

// typedoc.json
{
  "plugin": ["@8hobbies/typedoc-plugin-404"]
}

Configuration

This plugin recognizes a page404Content option in your typedoc.json. You can specify custom content that shows up in the 404 page:

{
  "page404Content": "This page does not exist."
}

The default value is "404 Page Not Found". The content can be HTML. The content is always wrapped with "<div class="404-content"></div>" in the HTML output.

Alternatively, check out this blog post for a detailed tutorial.

Use with the Default Theme

If you use this plugin with the default theme, you will need to replace asset paths in 404.html with absolute paths, otherwise user visiting non-existent pages in subfolders will not retrieve the right asset paths. This can be achieved by:

  1. Installing replace-in-files-cli:

    npm install --save-dev replace-in-files-cli
  2. Run the replacement after typedoc. In your package.json file:

    {
      "scripts": {
        "doc": "typedoc && replace-in-files --string '=\"assets/' --replacement '=\"/assets/' docs/404.html"
      }
    }

Live Example

The document of this plugin itself is a live example. Visit its 404 page or type in a random path from that domain to check out.
