Enable user defined values for MkDocs

Project description


This is a plugin for a MkDocs which allows pages to have user defined input values.


Install the plugin using pip:

pip install mkdocs-user-defined-values

Activate the plugin in mkdocs.yml:

  - search
  - user-defined-values:
          placeholder: ap-southeast-2

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.


  • keywords - This is a list of keywords which you want to allow a user to modify.
  • input-placeholder - This is a placeholder where you want the plugin to generate the form for user to provide dynamic values for each keyword. Default value is {{{user-defined-values}}}.


  • Provide a list of keywords you want a user to provide dynamically.
  • Place {{{user-defined-values}}} in your page or template where you want to generate the form for user to provide dynamic values.
