Purpose: This document explains how to render breadcrumbs in your Firn layouts.
Breadcrumbs are a navigational tool that indicate where a file falls in a parent-child heirarchy. For example, this document you are reading right now falls under a parent document ("The Render Function"), which falls under another parent document ("Content").
$ Content > The Render Function > Breadcrumbs
When you render breadcrumbs on your page, it will display the "path" (or list of parent files) that connects the current page displayed.
To display breadcrumbs on a page there are two requirements:
The org document to be rendered must have a
#+FIRN_UNDER: front matter; the value should be the title of another file, or of a list of file titles (in a list scenario, the first item is the greatest/oldest ancestor, and the last item in the list is the direct parent of the file.)
# Examples 1: nest a file under another single file. #+FIRN_UNDER: Content # Examples 2: Nest under a file with multiple words #+FIRN_UNDER: "The Render Function" # Examples 3: Nest under several files: #+FIRN_UNDER: Content "The Render Function"
Rendering breadcrumbs in a layout.
The layout you are using to render the org-mode document needs to use the render function to display it.
; org file must have front matter such as: ; my-file.org: ; #+FIRN_UNDER: Parent ; #+FIRN_LAYOUT: default ; In `layouts/default.clj`, render breadcrumbs: (render :breadcrumbs)
Changes you make to the
#+FIRN_UNDER keyword also affect the sitemap. The breadcrumbs is, in essence, a small slice of the sitemap.
