Literacy is distributed using NPM. See the latest details at the Literacy NPM registry page.
Add it to an existing project:
npm install --save literacy
Or with Yarn:
yarn add literacy
literacy command to extract the code blocks from a single
file and output to a file.
$ literacy examples/blocks.js.rst --out-file blocks.js
.json.rst files from an entire source directory can be
processed and output to another directory retaining the relative path prefixes.
This doesn’t overwrite any other files or directories in the output. Use
-out-dir to specify an output directory.
$ literacy --out-dir lib src
To also copy the files which are not
.json.rst files from the
source directory to the output directory, include the
$ literacy --copy-files --out-dir lib src
For other command options and usage, use
Projects which incorporate Literacy can combine documentation and source trees
into a single reStructured Text document. See src in this project for an
example. There, the
index.rst file is the entry point for the documentation
and includes the source
.js.rst files from
src/js into the document. These
source files are also separately processed by the Literacy command line tool to
lib module directory contents for publishing to the NPM registry.
For non-production use cases there is a require hook for including
files without specifying the suffix. This can be convenient for developing in
source trees which use the
literacy command to compile to
.js files since
the transpilation step can be omitted.
Using a require hook in production code is not recommended practice.
To use the hook, require it from the development run harness, e.g. inside a wrapper Yarn/NPM script.
.js.rst files as if they were
.js files. The hook takes care
extraction before handing it to the Node module compiler.
A Webpack loader is provided for integrating Literacy with Webpack to support
.js.rst processing. See the example project included at
A rkt container build script is included in the project repository and provides an installation which can be used to build the project also. See the description on building and running the container in the Development Tools Container section of the documentation for more information.
For macOS, RktMachine provides a CoreOS VM which supports developing using the rkt container system.
Start by installing Literacy and the other project dependencies using Yarn.
Then build the project:
$ yarn build
