Asciidoctor HTMLBook

Asciidoctor HTMLBook is an Asciidoctor backend for converting AsciiDoc documents to HTMLBook documents.

Installation

Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:

gem 'asciidoctor-htmlbook'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install asciidoctor-htmlbook

Usage

CLI

$ asciidoctor-htmlbook basic-example.adoc

or

$ asciidoctor -r asciidoctor-htmlbook basic-example.adoc

For more options:

$ asciidoctor-htmlbook -h

API

To use Asciidoctor in your application, you first need to require the gem:

require 'asciidoctor/htmlbook'

Load and Convert a File Using the API

Load from file:

doc = Asciidoctor.load_file 'mysample.adoc', backend: 'htmlbook'
puts doc.convert

Convert file:

Asciidoctor.convert_file 'mysample.adoc', backend: 'htmlbook'

Load and Convert Strings Using the API

Load from string:

doc = Asciidoctor.load '*This* is Asciidoctor.', backend: 'htmlbook'
puts doc.convert

Render string:

Asciidoctor.convert '*This* is Asciidoctor.', backend: 'htmlbook'

When rendering a string, the header and footer are excluded by default to make Asciidoctor consistent with other lightweight markup engines like Markdown. If you want the header and footer, just enable it using the :header_footer option:

Asciidoctor.convert '*This* is Asciidoctor.', backend: 'htmlbook', header_footer: true

Asciidoctor.convert '*This* is Asciidoctor.', backend: 'htmlbook', template_dir: 'path/to/templates'
