This plugin streamlines finding associated files for a particular document in DocPad, which is useful for:

  • getting images for a gallery
  • getting downloads for an article
  • etc. etc.

Install

docpad install associatedfiles

Usage

The way it works is by looking into src/files/associated-files/#{document.associatedFilesPath or document.basename} for files. Where associatedFilesPath is set in your document's meta data, and if it doesn't exist it will use the document's basename (e.g. the basename of my-holiday-2012.html.eco is my-holiday-2012). Any files inside that path will be associated to your document, and retrieveable by @getDocument().getAssociatedFiles()

Lets see how this works, we have the document src/documents/my-holiday-2012.html.eco:

---
title: My Holiday in 2012
---

<h2>Here are some great photos from our trip</h2>

<% for file in @getDocument().getAssociatedFiles().toJSON(): %>
<p>
    <h3><%= file.title or file.name %></h3>
    <img src="<%= file.url %>" title="<%= file.title or file.name %>" />
</p>
<% end %>

Then we will stick a few images inside our path: src/files/associated-files/my-holiday-2012. And we'll end up with the rendered result:

<h2>Here are some great photos from our trip</h2>

<p>
    <h3>sweet-sweet-beach.jpg</h3>
    <img src="/associated-files/my-holiday-2012/sweet-sweet-beach.jpg" title="sweet-sweet-beach.jpg" />
</p>

<p>
    <h3>sweet-sweet-icecream.jpg</h3>
    <img src="/associated-files/my-holiday-2012/sweet-sweet-icecream.jpg" title="sweet-sweet-icecream.jpg" />
</p>

Configure

Defaults

The default configuration for this plugin is the equivalant of adding the following options to your DocPad configuration file:

plugins:
    associatedfiles:
        # The paths for the associated files.
        associatedFilesPath: 'associated-files'

        # Whether to use relative base paths for the document. This would
        # use associated-files/subfolder/myarticle/image.jpg instead of
        # associated-files/myarticle/image.jpg.
        useRelativeBase: false

Template Configuration

It is possible to override the default configuration on a per-template basis:

---
associatedFilesRelative: true
associatedFilesPath: './myfolder'
---

<% for file in @getDocument().getAssociatedFiles().toJSON(): %>
<p>
    <h3><%= file.title or file.name %></h3>
    <img src="<%= file.url %>" title="<%= file.title or file.name %>" />
</p>
<% end %>
