Tool for building multiple GitBook books with single command. Under the hood it utilizes GitBook Toolchain to install all book plugins, build the book (as it would be build on legacy.gitbook.com) and then copy build artifact to specified directory.
npm i gitbook-multi-build
Example configuration file (from content.gitguts.io):
Above JSON configuration needs to be saved in a file (f.e. books.json) and later on passed as an argument to CLI tool.
List of GitBook projects to build and copy over to output directory. Each book needs to have two properties:
- source - relative path to book root directory
- destination - name of the directory to which build book needs to be copied within specified output directory
Name of the directory to which all of the books will be copied after being build. Output directory will be created in directory from where tool gets executed.
Important: Output directory is considered a temporary which means that before each and every build it will be removed (if exists) and created from scratch.
Assuming configuration file is stored in file named books.json build command would look like this:
node node_modules/gitbook-multi-build/bin/index build books.json
Tool help command can be executed as following:
node node_modules/gitbook-multi-build/bin/index --help
Example tool invocation using Node.js package.json script can be found in this file.
