Matter

A universal frontmatter parser and extractor, written in Rust.

Installation

By default, matter is installed with support for TOML, YAML, and JSON frontmatter formats. However, you can override the defaults and install support for one specific format like so:

matter = { version = "0.1.0alpha1", features = ["toml"] }

Usage

Once installed, you'll notice that Matter exports only a handful of functions. This is because it does most of the work for you. It also attempts to operate with minimal overhead, by only allocating as necessary.

let input = std::fs::read_to_string("./path/to/content.md").unwrap();
let (matter, content) = matter::extract(&input);

See the docs for more examples.

CLI

Matter is also distributed as a command line application. Install (cargo install matter-cli) and run to inspect any file's frontmatter:

matter path/to/content.md
