Eleventy Notes

Edit link

If you host your notes on an online platform like GitHub that supports online editing of Markdown files, you can add an Edit this note link that will be shown in the panel on the right side of the page.

You can configure the URL of the edit link in the Configuration file as shown below. Omit the configuration if you want to hide the link.

// /app.js
module.exports = defineConfig({
  editThisNote: {
    // URL to the online editor
    url: "https://example.com/edit/{{file}}",

    // Example for GitHub
    // Replace "johndoe/my-notes" with your repository
    url: "https://github.com/johndoe/my-notes/edit/{{branch}}/{{file}}",

    // If the link should open in a new tab (optional)
    // Default: false
    openInNewTab: true,

The url property supports the following placeholders:

Placeholder Description Example
{{file}} File path of the note (URL encoded, without leading slash) My%20Folder/My%20Note.md
{{branch}} Name of the current Git branch (if you use Git) main
