    Quickly generate a wiki website from structured markdown files.

    Table of contents


    This cli is designed to be run inside a docker container.

    The command below will:

    • Read in markdown files from ./your_pages_directory
    • Write html files to ./your_output_directory
    • Set the theme colour to #4b8aee
    docker run -it --rm \
      -v `pwd`/your_pages_directory:/pages \
      -v `pwd`/your_output_directory:/dist \
      openlab/wiki-md --theme-color="#4b8aee"

    GitLab CI usage

    Below is an example of using wiki-md in a [GitLab CI] pipeline, it does a few things:

    • Runs command inside the openlab/wiki-md docker image
    • Offers customisation through pipeline variables
    • Deploys assets to a server via SCP
      • Authenticated with an ssh key added via pipeline variables
        name: openlab/wiki-md:0.3.1
        entrypoint: ['/bin/sh', '-c']
        - docker
        - wiki-md . dist --theme-color="$THEME_COLOR" --site-title="SOPs"
        - tar -czf dist.tar.gz dist
        - echo "$SSH_SECRET" > deploy_key && chmod 600 deploy_key
        - scp -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -i deploy_key dist.tar.gz $DEPLOY_HOST:$DEPLOY_PATH/dist.tar.gz
        - ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -i deploy_key $DEPLOY_HOST $DEPLOY_PATH/

    NPM usage

    If you want to experiment you can install the cli with npm.

    # Install it globally
    npm i -g @openlab/wiki-md
    # Use the cli
    wiki-md --help
    # For example...
    wiki-md pages dist --site-title="My wiki" --theme-color="#000000" --owner-name="Geoff" --owner-link="" --verbose

    Below are instructions for developing this repo


    To develop on this repo you will need to have Docker and node.js installed on your dev machine and have an understanding of them. This guide assumes you have the repo checked out and are on macOS, but equivalent commands are available.

    You'll only need to follow this setup once for your dev machine.

    # Install all dependencies using npm
    npm ci

    Regular use

    These are the commands you'll regularly run to develop the API, in no particular order.

    # Run the CLI
    # -> The -- is needed to that any args are passed to cli.js
    npm run dev -s --
    # Output cli help
    npm run dev -s -- --help
    # Run a http server to serve files
    # -> Run in a new terminal tab
    npx http-server

    Irregular use

    These are commands you might need to run but probably won't, also in no particular order.

    # Build the docker image
    docker build -t openlab/wiki-md:$VERSION .
    docker push openlab/wiki-md:$VERSION
    # Lint the source code
    # -> Uses ESLint to check for common errors
    npm run lint
    # Format source code
    # -> Uses prettier to automatically format code
    # -> This already happens automatically when you commit (see below)
    npm run prettier
    # Generate the table of contents for this readme
    npx md-toc -i


    This repo uses unit tests to ensure that everything is working correctly, guide development, avoid bad code and reduce defects. The Jest package is used to run unit tests. Tests are any file in src/ that end with .spec.js, by convention they are inline with the source code, in a parallel folder called __tests__.

    # Run the tests
    npm test -s
    # Generate code coverage
    npm run coverage -s

    Code formatting

    This repo uses Prettier to automatically format code to a consistent standard. It works using the husky and lint-staged packages to automatically format code whenever code is commited. This means that code that is pushed to the repo is always formatted to a consistent standard.

    You can manually run the formatter with npm run prettier if you want.

    Prettier is slightly configured in .prettierrc.yml and also ignores files using .prettierignore.
