Getting Started

Welcome to the Dokz documentation! Dokz is a documentation site generator that compiles your markdown down to a static react site The markdown extension used is mdx, it has all the markdown features plus you can import, export and render react components 🔥

Dokz uses Next.js under the hood, check out Next.js if you never heard about it


We recommend creating a new Dokz app using create-dokz-app, which sets up everything automatically for you. To create a project, run:

npm init dokz-app
# or
yarn create dokz-app

After the installation is complete run npm run dev to start the development server. Try editing pages/index.mdx and see the result on your browser.

Manual Setup

warning: you should use npm init dokz-app if you start from scratch

You can also install dokz in an existing nextjs application:

npm install dokz @emotion/react @chakra-ui/react @emotion/styled framer-motion
# or
yarn add dokz @emotion/react @emotion/styled @chakra-ui/react framer-motion

Add the dokz provider to the main nextjs entry point

// _app.jsx
import { DokzProvider } from 'dokz'
import { ChakraProvider } from '@chakra-ui/react'
import React from 'react'

export default function App(props) {
    const { Component, pageProps } = props
    return (
        <ChakraProvider resetCSS>
            <DokzProvider headerLogo={<img src='/logo.svg' width='100px' />}>
                <Component {...pageProps} />

Add withDokz in the next.config.js file

const { withDokz } = require('dokz/dist/plugin')

module.exports = withDokz()

Create a new mdx document inside tha pages folder, for example index.mdx
