To customize the look and feel of your documentation, you can create a config.json file in the of the /docs folder. The config.json file is a JSON object that you can use to change some of the basic settings of the documentation.

Table of contents

Title

Change the title bar in the docs

{
  "title": "Daux.io"
}

Tagline

Change the tagline bar in the docs

{
  "tagline": "The Easiest Way To Document Your Project"
}

Author

Change the documentation’s author

{
  "author": "Stéphane Goetz"
}

Image

An image to show on the landing page. A relative path from the documentation root.

{
  "image": "image.png"
}

Format

Change the output format. It is recommended you set only formats that support the live mode as this will also be read by the integrated web server. And you set the other formats (like confluence) only by command line

{
  "format": "html"
}

Available formats are HTML and Confluence

Ignore

Set custom files and entire folders to ignore within your /docs folder. For files make sure to include the file extension in the name. For both files and folders, names are case-sensitive.

{
  "ignore": {
    "files": ["Work_In_Progress.md"],
    "folders": ["99_Not_Ready"]
  }
}

Timezone

If your server does not have a default timezone set in php.ini, it may return errors when it tries to generate the last modified date/time for docs. To fix these errors, specify a timezone in your config file. Valid options are available in the PHP Manual.

{
  "timezone": "America/Los_Angeles"
}

Multi-language

Enables multi-language support which needs separate directories for each language in docs/ folder.

{
  "languages": {"en": "English", "de": "German"}
}

Language

You can change the default language with the language option.

{
  "language": "fr"
}

This will change the language of the text within Daux.io and also the <html lang> attribute.

You can override the translations with the strings option. A string that isn’t found will fall back to english.

{
  "strings": {
    "fr": {
      "CodeBlocks_show": "Afficher le code",
      "Search_placeholder": "Rechercher...",
      "Link_previous": "Précédent",
      "Link_next": "Suivant",
      "Edit_on": "Editer sur :name:",
      "View_on_github": "Voir sur GitHub",
      "View_documentation": "Voir la Documentation"
    }
  }
}

Processor

You can set the processor in the documentation or as an option to the command line. If you need it when running the server, you should add it to the configuration.

More information on how to create a Processor can be found here.

{
  "processor": "MyProcessor"
}
