Usage

Step #1 - Update book.json file

  1. In you gitbook's book.json file, add edit-link-plus to plugins list.
  2. In pluginsConfig, Set base value which is base path to your github or gitlab or other code repo. Trailing slash is NOT required.
  3. By default link label will be "Edit This Page". You can change it using plugin config label.
  4. In pluginsConfig, Set defaultBase value which is set as default base path to your github or gitlab or other code repo. Trailing slash is also NOT required.

Here is simplest example :

{
    "plugins": ["edit-link-plus"],
    "pluginsConfig": {
        "edit-link-plus": {
            "base": "https://github.com/USER/REPO/edit/BRANCH/path/to/book"
        }
    }
}

In addition, the supported configuration options are as follows :

"base"{
  "type": [
    "string",
    "object"
  ],
  "title": "Base for the edit redirection",
  "required": true
},
"defaultBase"{
  "type": "string",
  "title": "Default base for the edit redirection",
  "required": false
},
"label"{
  "type": [
    "string",
    "object"
  ],
  "title": "Label for the edit button",
  "default": "Edit This Page",
  "required": false
}

Step #2 - gitbook commands

  1. Run gitbook install. It will automatically install edit-link-plus gitbook plugin for your book. This is needed only once.
gitbook install

or you can run npm install gitbook-plugin-edit-link-plus to install locally.

npm install gitbook-plugin-edit-link-plus
  1. Build your book (gitbook build) or serve (gitbook serve) as usual.
gitbook serve

Troubleshooting

  1. If you are not seeing the "Edit this page" link, check if your book.json is valid. You can use this online tool - http://json.parser.online.fr/beta/
  2. Check if you are using default gitbook theme. It is NOT recommended to modify gitbook themes directly.
