node package manager



Iterates over a folder and translates all of the markdown files to html.

Also includes option for translating markdown files to pdf files.

Getting Started

npm install md-codingdojo

Options Available

  • -S --source Source Folder.
    • Default is ./src
  • -D --dest Destination Folder.
    • Default for html is ./html
    • Default for pdf is ./pdf
  • -P --pdf To translate to pdf in addition to html use this flag.
    • You should specify an identifier. MD -> PDF takes a while so no need to translate files you do not need.
  • -I --identifier Identifier used to decide whether to parse the file.
    • I use this for assignments, I add a .as. to the assignment file names to mark for md to pdf.

Files and Folders to ignore

After specifying all of your options, any values you add to the end of the command will be used to decide which files and folders to ignore.

md-cd -S curriculum -D currHTML node_modules .git

In the example above [node_modules, .git,] will be the file or folder names that will be ignored. In addition to the files specified above any files that do not match the identifier will also be ignored.


md-cd -P -I .as.

### Serving Local Images
If you want to show images stored locally on your pdf store the image at `process.cwd` and then set the img src tag to `<img src="{path}image_name.png" />. Check out the example in the test folder of this repo `/test/dojoheader.html`.
