Mkdocs plugin that enables displaying the localized date of the last git modification of a markdown file.

Project description


MkDocs plugin that enables displaying the localized date of the last git modification of a markdown file. Forked from mkdocs-git-revision-date-plugin. The plugin uses babel and timeago to provide different localized date formats.


(Example when used together with mkdocs-material theme)


Install the plugin using pip:

pip install mkdocs-git-revision-date-localized-plugin

Activate the plugin in mkdocs.yml:

  - git-revision-date-localized


In theme templates

In templates you can use page.meta.git_revision_date_localized:

{% if page.meta.git_revision_date_localized %}
  Last update: {{ page.meta.git_revision_date_localized }}
{% endif %}

In markdown pages

In your markdown files you can use {{ git_revision_date_localized }}:

Last update: {{ git_revision_date_localized }}



Set this option to one of date, datetime, iso_date, iso_datetime or timeago. Default is date. Example outputs:

28 November, 2019 # type: date
28 November, 2019 13:57:28 # type: datetime
2019-11-28 # type: iso_date
2019-11-28 13:57:26 # type: iso_datetime
20 hours ago # type: timeago


Set this option to a two letter ISO639 language code to use a another language. This will overwrite any locale setting in mkdocs or your theme. If no locale is set fallback is English (en).


Setting a different configuration:

# mkdocs.yml
  - git-revision-date-localized:
    type: timeago
    locale: nl
