The hakyll-series package

[Tags:library, mit]

Module for adding series functionality to hakyll.

Example here.

In your posts, provide metadata at the top like so:

 title: something
 series: things

This will add the following fields to the post:

: The name of the series [seriesLength]: The total number of posts in the series [seriesCurPos]: The position of the current post in the series [seriesUrl]: The URL of the series page

Using that, in your post template, something like this:

     <a href="$seriesUrl$">Part $seriesCurPos$ of a $seriesLength$-part series on $series$</a>

Will render like this:

 Part 1 of a 5-part series on things

Linked to the aggregate page for the series, which would render something like this:

 Part 1: something

To add it to your blog, add something like this to your main:

 series <- buildSeries "posts/*" (fromCapture "series/*.html")

 tagsRules series $ \(s:erie) pattrn -> do
     let title = toUpper s : erie
     route idRoute
     compile $ do
         posts <- chronological =<< loadAll pattrn
         let ctx = constField "title" title `mappend`
                   listField "posts" postCtx (pure posts) `mappend`

         makeItem ""
             >>= loadAndApplyTemplate "templates/series.html" ctx
             >>= loadAndApplyTemplate "templates/default.html" ctx
             >>= relativizeUrls

To have access to the series context in each post, change the post rule to something like this:

 match "posts/*" $ do
     route $ setExtension "html"
     compile $ pandocCompiler
         >>= loadAndApplyTemplate "templates/post.html"    (postCtxWithSeries series)
         >>= loadAndApplyTemplate "templates/default.html" (postCtxWithSeries series)
         >>= relativizeUrls

Where postCtxWithSeries can be something like:

 postCtxWithSeries :: Tags -> Context String
 postCtxWithSeries series = seriesField series `mappend` postCtx

A minimal example is provided in this repo, on top of the default hakyll setup. (it also provides the templates)
