DocPad plugin which adds the ability to use the date within posts to add url routes /YEAR/MONTH/DAY.

Date URLs Plugin for DocPad

Adds support for date based URLs to DocPad

npm install --save docpad-plugin-dateurls

The purpose of this plugin is to enable date based url paths based on the a date metadata field within a post.

Add a date yaml header to posts you would like to have a date based url

For /documents/posts/2012-10-21-my-blog-post.html.md

---
name: my blog post
date: 2012-10-21
---

results:

http://yoursite.com/2012/10/21/my-blog-post.html

By default dateurls will pickup documents within /documents/posts if you would like to process a different folder under documents add:

  plugins:
    dateurls:
      documentPath: 'yourpath'

By default the files paths will have the file extension:

http://yoursite.com/2012/10/21/my-blog-post.html

If you would like to have clean urls such as:

http://yoursite.com/2012/10/21/my-blog-post

Pass true to the cleanurl configuration property

  plugins:
    dateurls:
      cleanurl: true

When using clean urls a route will be added with the forms

http://yoursite.com/2012/10/21/my-blog-post
http://yoursite.com/2012/10/21/my-blog-post/

If you wish to have links to the post use a trailing slash pass true to the trailingSlashes configuration property

  plugins:
    dateurls:
      trailingSlashes: true

If you would like dateurls to process documents in a collection you defined yourself (instead of documents in a specific document path), you can tell the plugin which collection to use explicitly:

  plugins:
    dateurls:
      collectionName: 'myCollection'

If you wish to format the date portion of the generated URL differently, you can tell the plugin which date format to use with moment explicitly:

  plugins:
    dateurls:
      dateFormat: '/YYYY/MM'
