{eac}Doojigger Readme Extension for WordPress


{eac}Readme is an {eac}Doojigger extension which loads and translates a WordPress markdown ‚readme.txt‘ file providing shortcodes to access header lines and section blocks.

Shortcode Usage

The first used shortcode must indicate the file to load…

[eacReadme file='/docfolder/readme.txt']        # file is relative to the WordPress document root folder
[eacReadme content='/contentfolder/readme.txt'] # content file is relative to the WordPress content folder (wp-content/)
[eacReadme plugin='/pluginfolder/readme.txt']   # plugin file is relative to the WordPress plugins folder (wp-content/plugins/)
[eacReadme theme='/themefolder/readme.txt']     # theme file is relative to the WordPress themes folder (wp-content/themes/)

After which, headers and sections may be pulled from that file…

[eacReadme]All Headers[/eacReadme]              # parses all header lines
[eacReadme]headerName[/eacReadme]               # gets the value of the named header line

[eacReadme]All Sections[/eacReadme]             # parses all section blocks
[eacReadme]sectionName[/eacReadme]              # parses the content of the named section block
[eacReadme]sectionName/sub-section[/eacReadme]  # parses the content of the named sub-section within section block

One shortcode can do it all…

[eacReadme plugin='/pluginfolder/readme.txt']Document[/eacReadme]    # loads the file and parses the entire document

Or load the entire file as a single code block…

[eacReadme theme='/themefolder/functions.php']Code File[/eacReadme]

Shortcode Examples

Get header values…

[eacReadme]Donate link[/eacReadme]
[eacReadme]Requires at least[/eacReadme]
[eacReadme]Stable tag[/eacReadme]

Get unnamed segments…

[eacReadme]Title[/eacReadme]                    # gets the '=== plugin name ===' line (before headers)
[eacReadme]Short Description[/eacReadme]        # gets the short description (between headers and first section block)

Get section blocks…


Get multiple blocks and/or sub-sections…

[eacReadme plugin='/eacReadme/readme.txt']Short Description,Description[/eacReadme]
[eacReadme plugin='/eacReadme/readme.txt']Short Description,Description/Shortcode Examples[/eacReadme]

Get a file as a code block…

[eacReadme theme='/my-child-theme/functions.js' lang='js']Code File[/eacReadme]
[eacReadme theme='/my-child-theme/style.css' lang='css']Code File[/eacReadme]

Other Options

Override option to parse markdown when retrieving a segment

[eacReadme parse='true|false' ...]

Set class=’language-*‘ on code blocks

[eacReadme lang='php|js|css|html' ...]

Translating Header/Section Names

Translate header/section names when retrieving All Headers, All Sections, or Document

[eacReadme translate='name=newname,...']
[eacReadme translate='Requires at least=Requires WordPress Version,Screenshots=Screen Shots']

Erase default translation table

[eacReadme translate='no|none|false']

Default translation table

    'Headers'               => 'Document Header',
    'Plugin URI'            => 'Homepage',
    'Stable tag'            => 'Current Version',
