Asciidoctor.js

Asciidoctor.js brings AsciiDoc to the JavaScript world!

This project uses Opal to transpile Asciidoctor, a modern implementation of AsciiDoc, from Ruby to JavaScript to produce asciidoctor.js. The asciidoctor.js script can be run on any JavaScript platform, including Node.js, GraalVM and, of course, a web browser.

Quickstart

$ npm i asciidoctor --save

Here is a simple example that converts AsciiDoc to HTML5:

sample.js
const asciidoctor = require('asciidoctor')() (1)
const content = 'http://asciidoctor.org[*Asciidoctor*] ' +
  'running on https://opalrb.com[_Opal_] ' +
  'brings AsciiDoc to Node.js!'
const html = asciidoctor.convert(content) (2)
console.log(html) (3)
1 Instantiate the Asciidoctor.js library
2 Convert AsciiDoc content to HTML5 using Asciidoctor.js
3 Print the HTML5 output to the console

Save the file as sample.js and run it using the node command:

$ node sample.js

You should see the following output in your terminal:

<div class="paragraph">
<p><a href="http://asciidoctor.org"><strong>Asciidoctor</strong></a> running on <a href="http://opalrb.com"><em>Opal</em></a> brings AsciiDoc to Node.js!</p>
</div>

It’s also possible to use the following script tag directly into your HTML page:

<script src="node_modules/@asciidoctor/core/dist/browser/asciidoctor.js"></script>
