assemble-contrib-anchors NPM version

Assemble plugin for creating anchor tags from headings in generated html using Cheerio.js.



<h1 id="glyphicons">Glyphicons</h1>


<h1 class="docs-heading">
  <a href="#heading-id-name" name="heading-id-name" class="anchor">
    <span class="anchor-target" id="heading-id-name"></span>
    <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-link"></span>

Currently the plugin adds Bootstrap glyphicon classes. If you want to use different classes, find a bug, or have a feature request, please create an issue


Visit the anchors example repo.


In the command line, run:

npm install assemble-contrib-anchors --save

Next, register the plugin with Assemble:

var options = {
  plugins: ['assemble-contrib-anchors', 'other/plugins/*']



Specify a custom template (Underscore/Lo-Dash) to use for anchor markup. This is the default template:

module.exports = [
  '<a href="#<%= id %>" name="<%= id %>" class="anchor">',
  '  <span class="anchor-target" id="<%= id %>"></span>',
  '  <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-link"></span>',

To use a custom template just specify it in the options as follows:

options: {
  plugins: ['assemble-contrib-anchors'],
  anchors: {
    template: './path/to/custom/template.js'

Visit the plugins docs for more info or for help getting started.
