Project description


A mkdocs plugin that lets you exclude selected files or sections from the search index.


Install the plugin using pip:

pip install mkdocs-exclude-search

Activate the plugin in mkdocs.yml:

  - search
  - exclude-search

Note: If you have no plugins entry in your config file yet, you'll likely also want to add the search plugin. MkDocs enables it by default if there is no plugins entry set, but now you have to enable it explicitly.

More information about plugins in the MkDocs documentation.

To only include a specific heading subsection of an excluded file, list the subsection under ignore.

  - search
  - exclude-search:
    - Home:
    - First chapter:
    - Second chapter:
    - Third chapter:

This example would exclude from the search the second chapter and the some-heading header subsection of the third chapter.
