Writing Content


In addition to the frontmatter fields supported by VuePress itself, all the fields of this theme extension are listed below.

Normal Page

  • navbar - if you want to disable the navigation bar on the current page, then you can set this field to false .

  • sidebar - the sidebar configuration for the current page, set to false to disable the sidebar on the current page.

  • toc - If you do not want to display the table of contents navigation hovering on the right side of the page on the current page, then you can set this field to false .

  • prev - specify the link of the previous page.

  • next - specify the link of the next page.

Home Page

The frontmatter fields available on the home page are identical to the default theme, see Default Theme for details on how to use it.


About markdown-it

VuePress 2 uses markdown-it as a parser for Markdown-formatted content, which follows the CommonMark Spec and offers many extended features.

In addition to the built-in Tables (GFM) and Strikethrough (GFM) functionality, markdown-it's plug-in design provides a wealth of options for extending syntax or features, as listed here .

VuePress 2 extensions

Thanks to the good infrastructure of VuePress, we can use markdown.* to configure all the configuration items of markdown-it and the extended configuration items of VuePress 2.

These configuration items are independent of any theme, and the theme provides consistent styles for them, so you can use them with confidence.

Custom Containers

VuePress 2 wraps markdown-it plugin markdown-it-container via the plugin @vuepress/container to make it easier to use. The theme also uses the @vuepress/container plugin, which adds a new reference type to the 6 container types supported by the default theme.
