docsify-web-component-docs

A Docsify plugin for displaying documentation for Custom Elements (Web Components).

Requirements

You must provide a Custom Elements Manifest (CEM) file for this plugin to function. You can generate one for your project by incorporating the CEM Analyzer into your build process.

Refer to Docsify Breeze for a fully integrated example:

This project supports an additional status field, which is not part of the default CEM specification. Refer to the aforementioned config example for including this field in your CEM file.

Usage

Setup & Installation

<script>
  window.$docsify = {
    // ... (your existing Docsify config)
    componentDocs: {
      manifestPath: "/dist/custom-elements.json",
    },
  };
</script>
<script src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/docsify-web-component-docs@1/dist/web-component-docs.min.js"></script>

Default styles, which you can override or replace with your own:

<link
  rel="stylesheet"
  href="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/docsify-web-component-docs@1/dist/web-component-docs.min.css"
/>

Available Tags for Displaying Documentation

Include the following tags in your Markdown file to display component documentation information:

# Button

[component-status:ds-button]

[component-description:ds-button]

## API Documentation

[component-metadata:ds-button]

💡 Protip: If your filename matches the name of your component (e.g., ds-button.md) then you can exclude the component name in the tag (e.g., just [component-status]).

[component-description:ds-button]

The description of your component, as provided in the first line of your component's documentation block:

/**
 * This is the description of a component.
 *
 * [...]
 */
@customElement("ds-button")
export default class DsButton extends LitElement {
  ...
}

[component-status:ds-button]

The status of your component, as provided in your documentation's component block:

/**
 * This is the description of a component.
 *
 * @status ready
 *
 * [...]
 */
@customElement("ds-button")
export default class DsButton extends LitElement {
  ...
}

This field requires a custom tag in your CEM config, as noted in Requirements. The default styles for this plugin support "draft", "ready", and "deprecated", but you can provide any desired value to this field and style it as desired.

[component-metadata:ds-button]

Complete metadata tables for slots, properties, events, methods, CSS parts, and CSS custom properties.

Options

componentDocs.manifestPath

  • Type: String
  • Default: undefined

Required. The path to your Custom Elements Manifest file (see requirements).

componentDocs.prefix

  • Type: String
  • Default: undefined

An optional standardized prefix used by all your components. For example, ds if all your components are named such as ds-button and ds-card. Setting this feature will allow you to exclude the prefix when specifying the component name in tags.

Live Example

You can see this plugin in use as part of Docsify Breeze (Live example, GitHub project).
