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 template engine used is Handlebars and rendering markdown is accomplished with MarkdownIt. Parsing the style and script source files is utilizing (SassDoc) and (JSDoc).
