Codesandbox Example Links Codeship Status for featurist/codesandbox-example-links

This project helps to manage runnable examples for javascript projects.

It covers both cases of project README on github and external docs website.

How it works

There is a CLI/API to replace magic placeholders in a markdown files with one of the following:

  • iframe with a codesandbox project
  • "Run this example" link to a codesandbox project
  • code snippet extracted from a file on a file system

Example

Given the following project structure:

.
├── demo-project
│   ├── index.html
│   ├── package.json
│   └── src
│       ├── app.jsx
│       └── index.js
├── docs
│   └── README.md

Where docs/README.md looks like this:

## An Example
 
[view code](/demo-project/src/index.js)
 
[codesanbox](/demo-project)
 
npx codesandbox-example-links --output-dir=. ./docs/README.md

Will produce a README.md in the root of the project with the following contents:

## An Example

```js
import * as hyperdom from "hyperdom";
import App from "./app";

hyperdom.append(document.body, new App());

```

Real world example

https://hyperdom.org

Usage

  • manually create sandbox for your example
  • download it into your project
  • insert magic links in markdown files
  • repeat for all examples
  • npx codesandbox-example-links --output-dir=./dist docs/*.md

The above command renders links. Add --iframe option to generate iframes instead.

Magic links

[codesanbox](/demo-project) - turns into either link or an iframe, depending on --iframe option

[view code](/path/to/file.js) - turns into a code snippet containing file.js

[view code](/path/to/file.jsL#3) - turns into a code snippet containing a fragment of file.js starting at line 3 onwards

[view code](/path/to/file.jsL#3-L10) - turns into a code snippet containing a fragment of file.js, lines 3 to 10

API

const generateLinks = require('codesandbox-example-links')
 
const input = fs.readFileSync('readme.md', {encoding: 'utf-8'})
const output = generateLinks(input, {iframe: true})

Debug

As of this writing, codesandbox api is sort of short on validation errors. So if generated links don't work, you might find some additional debug info useful. Set DEBUG=codesandbox-example-links to get some.

install

npm i codesandbox-example-links
