# vuepress-theme-mufeng


# Installation

yarn add vuepress-theme-mufeng -S

or with npm

npm install vuepress-theme-mufeng --save-dev

# Article

Render an overview of the article To generate a preview of the post on the cards, use excerpt by adding <!-- more --> after the first paragraph or first few introductory lines in your post.

## What is Vue.js -
In this post I will talk about Vue.js
<!-- more -->
Vue.js is awesome

As in the above form, adding the <!-- more --> tag to the md file, will render the content before this tag into the articles list as their preview.

# Articles meta-data

Use mufengblog shell to generate a new post with automatic date-time stamp, title and metadata etc. this helps the cards to sort according to date automatically, also filter the posts by tags etc.

install shell with

yarn global add mufengblog-shell

and then from your project's root dir, run

mufengblog post -p <post-name> --page README.md

like if your post is named javascript, just run

mufengblog post -p javascript --page README.md

this will create a folder called javascript and a README.md file in it with required data automatically. You can then make changes to this file like changing the title and metadata, tags etc.

title: Article title
# date is used for article sorting
date: 2017-08-15 10:27:26
tag: # Article tag, can be a String or an Array
  - js
  - react
# Meta tags that can be used to crawl by search engines
  - name: description
    content: Some description about your post
  - name: keywords # keywords Tags, will be queried when searching within pages
    content: theme vuepress

To let the theme filter by tags, add the following information alongside your previous themeConfig in config.js inside .vuepress folder

# tags

module.exports = {
  themeConfig: {
    tags: true,
    nav: [
      { text: 'TAGS', link: '/tags/', tags: true }

the above configuration let's theme know that TAGS field in the navbar is specifically for browsing tags from posts. When you visit the above path, it looks like following:

# Comment System

Use gitalk for comment system, click gitalk for more details.

But, don't support flipMoveOptions and render instane method

# Configuration

For your reference, I have put the configuration of my blog (.vuepress/config.js) here:

module.exports = {

    toc: { includeLevel: [1, 2] },
    config: md => {
      md.use(require('markdown-it-task-lists')) // a checkbox TODO List plugin
        .use(require('markdown-it-imsize'), { autofill: true }) // Support for custom md image size ![test](image.png =100x200)

        { text: 'GITHUB', link: 'https://github.com/zhangximufeng' },
        { text: 'about me', link: '/about/' },

# customize the layout

Besides the basic yaml config generated by mufengblog-shell, you can add the following information to customize the layout as you want:

to customize the layout, add the following to the header of the markdown file

heroText: Mufeng # title
activity: true # Use a custom activity layout that will collapse the card bar on the right
hidden: true # Set whether to display in the article list
tagline: Vuepress blog theme # description
heroImage: /static/logo.png # logo
# Refer to the configuration of the official default theme for service static files
actionText: Learn about →
actionLink: /mufeng/usage.html
# If you want to have more than one action button (in this case actionText and actionLink will be ignored):
# actions :
#    - text : Action1
#      link : /mufeng/action1.html
#    - text : Action2
#      link : /mufeng/action2.html
  - title: what is this
    details: A vuepress-based blog theme based on the default theme provided by vuepress
  - title: What are the characteristics?
    details: Provide article list, article pagination, article details, github card, custom event page layout, etc.
  - title: TODO

# Development, deployment

In the docs directory (or the root of your project), be sure to put a markdown file called README.md for generating the root path, which can be an empty file

You can use the following scripts to run the vuepress commands or you can run them directly, whichever you prefer


  "scripts": {
    "docs:dev": "vuepress dev {dirName}",
    "docs:build": "vuepress build {dirName}"

If you haven't installed vuepress gloablly, these scripts will be helpful to find the vuepress binaries from node_modules/.bin directory and execute them on shell. to execute above scripts, run:

npm run docs:dev


npm run docs:build
