metalsmith-nested

A metalsmith plugin for nesting your layouts when using the handlebars engine.

This plugin extends metalsmith-layouts when using the handlebars layout engine and recursively combines (nests) layouts in parent-child relationships. Simple enough it might also work with other layout engines.

Installation

$ npm install --save metalsmith-nested

Example

Child layouts are nested inside parent layouts replacing the {{{contents}}} expression.

Configuration in metalsmith.json:

{
  "plugins": {
    "metalsmith-nested": {
      "directory": "nested",
      "generated": "layouts"
    },
    "metalsmith-layouts": {
      "engine": "handlebars"
    }
  }
}

Source Page src/page.html:

---
layout: child.html
heading: Page Heading
title: Page Title
---
<p>Page contents</p>

Child Layout nested/child.html:

---
layout: parent.html
---
<h1>{{heading}}</h1>
  {{{contents}}}

Parent Layout nested/parent.html:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>{{title}}</title>
</head>
<body>
  {{{contents}}}
</body>
</html>

Results in layouts/child.html:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>{{title}}</title>
</head>
<body>
  <h1>{{heading}}</h1>
  {{{contents}}}
</body>
</html>

Results in build/page.html:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Page Title</title>
</head>
<body>
  <h1>Page Heading</h1>
  <p>Page contents</p>
</body>
</html>

It is possible to combine (nest) multiple layouts.

Example Site

Copy the example directory outside of the metalsmith-nested package

$ cp -rf example ../example

Navigate to the example directory

cd ../example

Install the dependencies

$ npm install

Build the site

$ node build

Javascript Build Script

The following build script uses the default values for all packages except that handlebars is specified as the layout engine.

[build.js]

const 
  Metalsmith  = require('metalsmith'),
  handlebars  = require('handlebars'),
  layouts     = require('metalsmith-layouts'),
  nested      = require('metalsmith-nested');
 
Metalsmith(__dirname)
  .source('src')
  .destination('build')
  
  .use(nested({
    directory: 'nested',
    generated: 'layouts'
  }))
  
  .use(layouts({
    engine: 'handlebars',
    directory: 'layouts'
  }))
  
  .build(function(err) {
    if (err) throw err;
  });

the above is the same as

[build.js]

const 
  Metalsmith  = require('metalsmith'),
  handlebars  = require('handlebars'),
  layouts     = require('metalsmith-layouts'),
  nested      = require('metalsmith-nested');
 
Metalsmith(__dirname)
 
  .use(nested())
  
  .use(layouts('handlebars'))
  
  .build(function(err) {
    if (err) throw err;
  });

The important thing to know is that the directory for metalsmith-nested is the source directory of pre-nested layouts and the generated directory is the output of combined (nested) layouts.

The output of metalsmith-nested is the input of metalsmith-layouts

Other options are pattern and default which should behave the same as in metalsmith-layouts. See metalsmith-layouts and multimatch for full documentation.

All Available Options

directory: 'nested',
generated: 'layouts',
pattern: '**/*',
default: ''
