Get started

To easiest way to start with Doku is to create your own pages by modifying html files within src directory.

To know more about how to use Jekyll, read the official documentation.

  • Create new page

    Create a new .html file directly within src directory

    layout: default
    route: index
    title: Quick-Start
    subtitle: Doku is a clean documentation template based on bulma.io.
    {% include tree.html tree=page.tree class="directory" %}

  • Menu

    Menu is automatically generated using menu.yml file content from _data directory.
    Jekyll will then use menu.html include file and integrate it directly into the layout for both menu (dekstop and mobile). See below an example of the data.yml content structure:

    - name: Quick Start
        - name: Features
          link: '#features'
        - name: Content
          link: '#content'
        - name: Get Started
          link: '#get-started'
        - name: HTML Structure
          link: '#html-structure'
    - name: Customization
      link: 'customization'
    - name: Changelog
      link: 'changelog'
