Intro to docusaurus

Features copied from Docusaurus

Well, I was impressed looking at docusaurus implementing so many features to their website. I wanted to work on Theme and Search Engine Optimization that required a lot of effort and knowledge. So, I started with some basic features that support my ModernSSG.


I wanted to make my Html page more supportive with Markdown. I did it by adding more supports to tags.

  • Improved Accessibility of generated HTML
  • Full Markdown support
  • Syntax Highlighting for code blocks

Future Features

Well, I would love to work on Issues. If anyone is interested to practice with this static site generator feel free to reach out.

Example of feature

//Improved Accessibility of generated HTML
 data = data.replacingOccurrences(of: "```

bash", with: "<pre><code>", options: .regularExpression)
                    data = data.replacingOccurrences(of: "

```", with: "</code></pre>", options: .regularExpression)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
