Create a Document

Documents are groups of pages connected through:

  • a sidebar
  • previous/next navigation
  • versioning

Create your first Doc

Create a Markdown file at docs/hello.md:

docs/hello.md
# Hello

This is my **first Toucaan document**!

A new document is now available at http://localhost:3000/docs/hello.

Configure the Sidebar

Toucaan automatically creates a sidebar from the docs folder.

Add metadata to customize the sidebar label and position:

docs/hello.md
---
sidebar_label: 'Hi!'
sidebar_position: 3
---

# Hello

This is my **first Toucaan document**!

It is also possible to create your sidebar explicitly in sidebars.js:

sidebars.js
module.exports = {
tutorialSidebar: [
{
type: 'category',
label: 'Tutorial',
items: ['hello'],
},
],
};
