metalsmith-markdown-precompiler

A Metalsmith plugin that precompiles markdown files.

You might need to use a template in your markdown documents.

# example from sample/src/posts/post1.markdown

Hello world! This is a simple post I'm writing to share an image, and since I want that images look consistent on my blog, I am using a partial to define the markup.

{{> figure src="kitten.jpg" title="A kitten"}}

The problem here is that marked (used by metalsmith-markdown) to parse the markdown, is not too happy when meet expressions like {{> foo}}:

Error: Parse error on line 2:
...e markup.</p><p>{{&gt; figure src=&quot
----------------------^
Expecting 'ID', 'STRING', 'NUMBER', 'BOOLEAN', 'UNDEFINED', 'NULL', 'DATA', got 'INVALID'

The solution it's to use metalsmith-markdown-precompiler to precompile the markdown files replacing the partials with their effective content, before using metalsmith-markdown.

setup

npm i -s metalsmith-markdown-precompiler

demo

Take a look at the file build-precompiled.js to have a demo of the correct usage. The results are available under sample/dist-precompiled folder.
