Usage

Create README configuration file

README.md generator needs a configuration file of your README, just create a file called readme.json in the root of your repository:

{
  "PROJECT": {
    "NAME": "",
    "ICON": {
      "IMAGE": "",
      "ALT": "",
      "WIDTH": 0,
      "HEIGHT": 0
    },
    "URL": "",
    "URL_TITLE": ""
  },
  "AUTHOR": {
    "NAME": "",
    "URL": "",
    "ALT": "",
    "DATE": "",
    "SECTION": {
      "TITLE": "Author",
      "SHOW": true
    }
  },
  "DESCRIPTION": "",
  "BADGES": {
    "0": {
      "IMAGE": "",
      "HREF": "",
      "ALT": ""
    },
    "1": {
      "IMAGE": "",
      "HREF": "",
      "ALT": ""
    },
    "2": {
      "NEWLINE": true
    },
    "3": {
      "IMAGE": "",
      "HREF": "",
      "ALT": ""
    }
  },
  "CONTENT": "readme.content.md"
}

In readme.content.md you can write the main content of your README, this has to be in the same root of your readme.json configuration.

Example of this README ```json { "PROJECT": { "NAME": "README.md Generator", "ICON": { "IMAGE": "icon.png", "ALT": "", "WIDTH": 200, "HEIGHT": 200 }, "URL": "http://ppizarror.com/readme-generator/", "URL_TITLE": "README.md Generator" }, "AUTHOR": { "NAME": "Pablo Pizarro R.", "URL": "http://ppizarror.com", "ALT": "ppizarror", "DATE": "2017", "SECTION": { "TITLE": "Author", "SHOW": true } }, "DESCRIPTION": "Generate a README.md file from a configuration file", "BADGES": { "0": { "IMAGE": "http://ppizarror.com/badges/author.svg", "HREF": "http://ppizarror.com", "ALT": "@ppizarror" }, "1": { "IMAGE": "http://ppizarror.com/badges/licensemit.svg", "HREF": "https://opensource.org/licenses/MIT/", "ALT": "MIT License" }, "2": { "IMAGE": "http://ppizarror.com/badges/python27.svg", "HREF": "https://www.python.org/downloads/", "ALT": "Python 2.7" } }, "CONTENT": "readme.content.md" } ```
