How they work

The modules functionality is a combination of:

  • Config and content inside the _data.json;
  • HTML from .jade files;
  • CSS from .sass (or your chosen pre-processor);
  • Folder structure;
  • Javascript (optional).


Folders & Files

The naming rule is: order + _ + module-id
example: 1_introduction

The modules and menu order derive from this naming rule.

The .jade and css files must follow the same folder identification:

Folder: 1_introduction  


In this file you can set the module and it's content. The rule is:

    "id": "Unique module id, same name as folder but without the order numbers",
    "name": "Module name, shown in menu and module title",
    "scripts": ["Javascript file(s) path is optional"],
    "items": "object, array, ou any type of data that will be held as the modules contents"


// Folder: 2_colors
    "id": "colors",
    "name": "Colors",
    "items": {
        "intro": ["Huge have two main colors: Magenta and Black."],
        "colors": [
                "className": "bg-magenta"
                "className": "bg-black"
                "className": "bg-grey"
                "className": "bg-blue"


Jade is one of the most simple ways for writing HTML. It allows to use programming logic to write HTML in a smarter way. To learn more, click here.

All data from the _data.json file will be available to the .jade file as variables.

CSS Styles

This projects supports SASS, LESS and Stylus. Choose one and use the file with the matching extension.

The stylesheet of the module will be automatically loaded.
