Patternlibrary (@ npm: node-patternlibrary) is a pattern/component documentation and static site generator for use with Node-JS.
It generates a series of documentation pages for each of the HTML patterns, or partials, or components, structured in an atomic design pattern. Documentation details are assembled from the specific pattern-files's source codes and supplied meta-data. Of course, like any other (Handlebars) partial, those patterns can also include other patterns, external (Handlebars) helpers or data as JSON or YAML, by themselfs.
These pages are combined under a GUI to view in your browser. It provides an overview dashboard, lists to browse patterns and categories and (kind of) interactive pattern documentation.
The main Patternlibrary GUI entrance page is
which can also be accessed by clicking the [title/logo] in the upper left corner.
It may be appropriate, but it is not mandatory, to put an introductory page like this up on the front of the pattern-library for a possible consumer, maybe a plugin or an application's (micro)service developer, to get to know what she/he is going to find here and/or what that project is about.
The help pages provide detailed explanations on how to install and use Patternlibrary.
This project is now going from some kind of Proof Of Concept to real-life implementation. Most of its behavour and features are fixed for now.
