Pages to be included in the documentation

By default, Github Wikito Converter will check for the following files to use as a table of contents (TOC):

  • (which is the default sidebar file on Github wikis)

When finding a TOC, gwtc will only generate pages linked from this TOC. Supported link formats are:

  • Markdown links with local path [Call Log](Call-Log) / [Log]( / [Calls](/;
  • Markdown links with remote (http/https) path [Calls]( Only those links that are placed in TOC will be converted to local page ids;
  • Github wiki links [[Call Log]] / [[Call-Log]] / [[Call Log|Call-Log]] / [[Log|Call Log]].


By default, the HTML output format will generate a single-page HTML document of you wiki, with all assets inlined, such as images, css, and javascript. So all you need to transfer documentation (to a colleague for example) is to send him/her this unique file.

You can disable this inlining feature by passing --disable-inline-assets (or -d) such as several files will be generated for each of images, css and javascript files.

Table of contents (TOC)

The TOC is rendered using a fixed div in the HTML documentation. You can use --toc-level to prevent the TOC div to overlap the body element.



PDF rendering is done using wkhtmltopdf which should be available in your PATH. It simply renders (more or less) the HTML version of your doc in PDF.

Page breaking

By default all TOC pages starts from a new page. Also with default css you will never see your code block or image broken in two pages. To add additional page breaking use style="page-break-before: always !important; with empty div element.
