Hello everyone, my name is Dustin. Today, I'd like to talk about my experience of borrowing some cool features from docusaurus.io to add it to my static site generator.
Implementing those 3 features was quite simple. For metadata and markdown file, I mainly used an external library: showdown to convert from markdown files to html files as well as parsing metadata from markdown files.
However, implementing the support for static assets such as images is a bit more interesting. I had to use another external library called fs-extra to copy assets folder from user to the dist folder. I also had to create another new class called
CopyFolder where I used
fs.copy method to copy
Yes, Docusaurus is highly recommended for developers who just want a simple document for their project, developers just need to focus on the context, Docusaurus will take care of the rest.
The next step that I wanted to do is to improve static files because right now users have to use exact same word
assets to make the program run properly.
In the future, I think I'll add
Themes and main page which will be generated automatically and styled by me with a random theme that I chose beforehand. The main page lists all other pages
