Tool for converting bookdown.json to mkdocs.yml for publishing bookdown docs to rtfd.org

README

Convert your bookdown.json files to mkdocs.yml so that you can publish documentation to rtfd.org:

$ cd project-with-bookdown
$ path/to/bin/bookdown2mkdocs.php convert doc/bookdown.json \
> --site-name=my-project \
> --repo-url=http://example.com/project \
> --copyright-author="Me Me Me" \
> --copyright-url=http://example.com

Caveats

  • The command assumes that your documentation is in doc/book/.
  • The command assumes that you want rendered documentation in doc/html/.
  • The command will create a symlink doc/book/index.md pointing to the project README.md if such a symlink does not exist. This is because you cannot have index pages in bookdown; those are reserved for auto-generated TOCs.
  • References to remote bookdown.json files will not work, only local files.
  • The command will overwrite mkdocs.yml.

Installation

Use Composer to install the tool:

$ composer global require phly/bookdown2mkdocs

Tip: add $HOME/.composer/vendor/bin to your $PATH.

Usage

Excecute the command in the root of your project.

bookdown2mkdocs.php convert [] --site-name= --repo-url= --copyright-url= --copyright-author= [--mkdocs=]
