Template helper for generating a list of links to the homepages of related GitHub/npm projects.

Please consider following this project's author, Jon Schlinkert, and consider starring the project to show your ❤️ and support.


Install with npm:

$ npm install --save helper-related

What does this do?

This is a template helper that takes an array of npm package names, and returns a list of formatted links with the description from each package.


This is an async helper that should work with any assemble based application.

Register the helper

app.helper('related', require('helper-related'));

Use in templates

{%= related(['remarkable', 'micromatch']) %}

Results in a list that looks something like:

- [assemble]( Get the rocks out of your socks! Assemble makes you fast at creating web projects… [more]( | [homepage]( "Get the rocks out of your socks! Assemble makes you fast at creating web projects. Assemble is used by thousands of projects for rapid prototyping, creating themes, scaffolds, boilerplates, e-books, UI components, API documentation, blogs, building websit")

If the array gets long, you can either format it like this:

{%= related([
]) %}   

Or pass the list as a variable on the context:

{%= related(verb.related.list) %}
