    ## Methods
    
    ### Textarea.replace()
    
    The `replace()` method returns a new string with some or all matches of a
    `pattern` replaced by a `replacement`. The `pattern` can be a string or a
    RegExp, and the `replacement` can be a string or a function to be called for
    each match. If `pattern` is a string, only the first occurrence will be
    replaced.
    
    The original string is left unchanged.
    
    **Example**
    
    ```js
    const p = 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. If the dog reacted, was it really lazy?';
    const regex = /dog/gi;
    
    console.log(p.replace(regex, 'ferret'));
    // expected output: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy ferret. If the ferret reacted, was it really lazy?"
    
    console.log(p.replace('dog', 'monkey'));
    // expected output: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy monkey. If the dog reacted, was it really lazy?"
    ```
    
    **Syntax**
    
    ```typescript
    const newStr = str.replace(pattern|substr, newSubstr|callback)
    ```
    
    **Parameters**
    
    - **`str: unknown`**
    
    - **`newSubstr: String`**<br/>
      The String that replaces the substring specified by the specified regexp or
      substr parameter. A number of special replacement patterns are supported; see
      the "Specifying a string as a parameter" section below.
    
    - **`pattern: RegExp`**<br/>
      A RegExp object or literal. The match or matches are replaced with newSubstr
      or the value returned by the specified function.
    
    - **`substr: String`**<br/>
      A String that is to be replaced by newSubstr. It is treated as a literal
      string and is not interpreted as a regular expression. Only the first
      occurrence will be replaced.
    
    - **`callback: Function`**<br/>
      A function to be invoked to create the new substring to be used to replace the
      matches to the given regexp or substr. The arguments supplied to this function
      are described in the "Specifying a function as a parameter" section below.
    
    **Return value**
    
    A new string, with some or all matches of a pattern replaced by a replacement.

    Overwrite Vuedoc Parser configuration using vuedoc.config.js

    // vuedoc.config.js
    import { Loader } from '@vuedoc/parser';
    import { PugLoader } from '@vuedoc/parser/loaders/pug';
    
    export default {
      output: 'docs/',
      parsing: {
        features: ['name', 'description', 'keywords', 'slots', 'model', 'props', 'events', 'methods'],
        loaders: [
          Loader.extend('pug', PugLoader),
        ],
      },
    };

    And then:

    vuedoc-md --config vuedoc.config.js components/*.vue
    # or
    vuedoc-md -c components/*.vue

    See Vuedoc Parser documentation for parsing options.

    Programmatic Usage

    Options

    Name Type Description
    level Integer Set the title level. An integer between 1 and 6
    output String The output of the documentation. Can be a directory or a Markdown file. If absent, the STDOUT will be used
    section String Inject the generated documentation to a section. Works with options.output as Markdown file output
    parsing Object Overwrite the default Vuedoc Parser configuration
    join Boolean Combine generated documentation for multiple component files into only one
    filenames String[] List of component filenames to parse and render. If options.join === true, options.filenames will parsing will be joined and rendered as a single component
    wordwrap Integer The width of the text before wrapping to a new line. Set to 0 to disable word wrapping. Default is 80
    labels Record<I18nKey, String> I18n labels for translation. See @vuedoc/md/I18n

    Usage

    import { renderComponent } from '@vuedoc/md';
    
    const options = {
      join: true,
      filenames: [
        'components/input.mixin.vue',
        'components/checkbox.vue',
      ],
    };
    
    renderComponent(options)
      .then((document) => console.log(document))
      .catch((err) => console.error(err))

    Overwrite the default Vuedoc Parser configuration

    import { renderComponent } from '@vuedoc/md';
    import { TypePugLoader } from '@vuedoc/parser/loaders/pug';
    import { Loader } from '@vuedoc/parser';
    
    const options = {
      filenames: [
        'test/fixtures/checkbox.vue',
      ],
      parsing: {
        features: ['name', 'description', 'keywords', 'slots', 'model', 'props', 'events', 'methods'],
        loaders: [
          Loader.extend('pug', TypePugLoader),
        ],
      },
    };
    
    renderComponent(options)
      .then((document) => console.log(document))
      .catch((err) => console.error(err));

    See Vuedoc Parser documentation for parsing options.

    Documentation Syntax

    For the complete documentation syntax, please follow this link:

    Example

    export default {
      name: 'CheckboxInput',
      props: {
        /**
         * The input format callback
         * @public
         */
        format: Function,
      },
      methods: {
        /**
         * This will be ignored on parsing and rendering
         * @private
         */
        validate() {},
        /**
         * This will be ignored on parsing and rendering
         * @protected
         */
        commit() {},
      },
    };

    Specific Tags for Props

    You can assign a reference to a type using @typeref {url}

    Example

    export default {
      props: {
        /**
         * UI Schema Descriptor to use for rendering.
         *
         * @typeref https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Object
         */
        descriptor: {
          type: Object,
        },
      },
    };

    This will render:

    | Name         | Type                                                                                                 | Description                                 |
    | -------------| ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | ------------------------------------------- |
    | `descriptor` | [`Object`](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Object)  | UI Schema Descriptor to use for rendering.  |

    You can also define typeref for union type:

    export default {
      props: {
        /**
         * Initial input value
         * @typeref https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Number
         * @typeref https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/String
         */
        value: {
          type: [Number, String],
        },
      },
    };

    Using Plugins

    To use a plugin, it needs to be added to the devDependencies of the project and included in the plugins array in the vuedoc.config.js config file. For example, to provide support of Vue Router, the official @vuedoc/plugin-vue-router can be used:

    $ npm add -D @vuedoc/plugin-vue-router
    // vuedoc.config.js
    import { Loader } from '@vuedoc/parser';
    import { VueRouterPlugin } from '@vuedoc/plugin-vue-router';
    
    export default {
      output: 'docs/',
      parsing: {
        plugins: [
          VueRouterPlugin,
        ],
      },
    };

    You can found the list of official plugins on the Vuedoc Parser documentation.
