plugins /  Overview


Plugins extend the core functionality of Assemble.

Plugins are a new feature, but we know they'll play a big part in Assemble's future. We're looking for great plugins to add to our documentation and "contrib" collection, so please let us know if you have something in mind!

If you authored an Assemble plugin, please submit a pull request to add it to this page!

Contrib Plugins

  • assemble-contrib-contextual: Generates a JSON file containing the context of each page. Basic plugin to help see what's happening in the build.
  • assemble-contrib-permalinks: This plugin enables powerful and configurable URI replacement patterns, presets, uses Moment.js for parsing dates, and much more.
