Sympli integration preprocessor for Foliant.

Project description

# BindSympli

BindSympli is a tool to download design layout images from [Sympli]( CDN using certain Sympli account, to resize these images, and to bind them with the documentation project.

## Installation

Before using BindSympli, you need to install [Node.js](, [Puppeteer](, [wget](, and [ImageMagick](

BindSympli preprocessor code is written in Python, but it uses the external script written in JavaScript. This script is provided in BindSympli package:

$ pip install foliantcontrib.bindsympli

## Config

To enable the preprocessor, add `bindsympli` to `preprocessors` section in the project config:

- bindsympli

The preprocessor has a number of options with the following default values:

- bindsympli:
get_sympli_img_urls_path: get_sympli_img_urls.js
wget_path: wget
convert_path: convert
cache_dir: !path .bindsymplicache
sympli_login: ''
sympli_password: ''
image_width: 800
max_attempts: 5

: Path to the script `get_sympli_img_urls.js` or alternative command that launches it (e.g. `node some_another_script.js`). By default, it is assumed that you have this command and all other commands in `PATH`.

: Path to `wget` binary.

: Path to `convert` binary, a part of ImageMagick.

: Directory to store downloaded and resized images.

: Your username in Sympli account.

: Your password in Sympli account.

: Width of resulting images in pixels (original images are too large).

: Maximum number of attempts to run the script `get_sympli_img_urls.js` on fails.

## Usage

To insert a design layout image from Sympli into your documentation, use `<<sympli>...</sympli>` tags in Markdown source:

Here’s an image from Sympli:

<<sympli caption="An optional caption" url="!/designs/0123456789abcdef01234567/specs/assets"></sympli>

You have to specify the URL of Sympli design layout page in `url` attribute.

BindSympli preprocessor will replace such blocks with local image references.
