Raku module to render Pod as HTML.
From the command line:
raku --doc=HTML lib/FancyModule.rakumod > FancyModule.html
From within Raku:
# Pod file
title => 'My Own Title',
subtitle => 'On the Art of Making Titles',
lang => 'en',
From the Raku ecosystem:
$ zef install Pod::To::HTML:auth<Raku>
$ git clone https://github.com/Raku/Pod-To-HTML.git
$ cd Pod-To-HTML/
$ zef install .
Note: Perl 6 2018.06 introduces changes on how non-breaking whitespace was handled; this is now included in the tests. If the installation fails, please upgrade to Perl 6 >= 2018.06 or simply disregard the test and install with
--force if that particular feature is of no use to you.
Note 2: Perl6 2018.11 introduced handling of Definition blocks,
Defn. Please upgrade if you are using that feature in the documentation.
Pod::To::HTML takes a Pod tree and outputs correspondingly formatted HTML using a default or provided Mustache template. There are two ways of accomplishing this:
from the command line, using
raku --doc=HTML, which extracts the Pod from the document and feeds it to
from within a Raku program via the exported
render subroutine, which creates a complete HTML document from the Pod. This allows more customization (
lang can override Pod's corresponding semantics, different Mustache template (possibly with partials), additional template variables for the template, etc.) than simply rendering the Pod via
raku --doc=HTML which just use the default template.
render: Render a Pod document from several sources.
lang are supplied to the Mustache template and override the Pod document's corresponding semantic blocks. A
template path can be passed; the Mustache template
main.mustache must be under that path. Partials to the template must be under the same path in a directory named
render(Array $pod, Str :$title, Str :$subtitle, Str :$lang, Str :$template = Str, *%template-vars)
render(Pod::Block $pod, Str :$title, Str :$subtitle, Str :$lang, Str :$template = Str, *%template-vars)
render(IO::Path $file, Str :$title, Str :$subtitle, Str :$lang, Str :$template = Str, *%template-vars)
render(Str $pod-string, Str :$title, Str :$subtitle, Str :$lang, Str :$template = Str, *%template-vars)
Pod::To::HTML makes the following information available to the Mustache template:
title: This is picked up from the Pod's semantic block
=TITLE (if any), although it can be overridden by supplying it via
render. It defaults to the empty string.
subtitle: This is picked up from the Pod's semantic block
=SUBTITLE (if any), although it can be overridden by supplying it via
render. It defaults to the empty string.
lang: This is picked up from the Pod's semantic block
=LANG (if any), although it can be overridden by supplying it via
render. It defaults to the
toc: The Pod document's table of contents.
footnotes: The Pod document's footnotes.
Additional information can be made available to the Mustache template by supplying to
render as named arguments. For example,
css-url => https://design.raku.org/perl.css will be available to the template as
Semantic blocks are treated as metadata and supplied as such to a Mustache template. For example, from the Pod document:
=TITLE Classes and objects
=SUBTITLE A tutorial about creating and using classes in Raku
=DATE January 01, 2020
the template variables
date are made available to a Mustache template. Both
subtitle can be overridden via the
Note: Pod's semantic blocks can be overridden via
render by using a variable of the same name.
