Abbreviations

Technical documentation often incurs the usage of many acronyms, which may need additional explanation, especially for new user of your project. For these matters, Material for MkDocs uses a combination of Markdown extensions to enable site-wide glossaries.

Configuration

This configuration enables abbreviations and allows to build a simple project-wide glossary, sourcing definitions from a central location. Add the following line to mkdocs.yml:

markdown_extensions:
  - abbr
  - pymdownx.snippets

See additional configuration options:

Usage

Adding abbreviations

Abbreviations can be defined by using a special syntax similar to URLs and footnotes, starting with a * and immediately followed by the term or acronym to be associated in square brackets:

Text with abbreviations
The HTML specification is maintained by the W3C.

*[HTML]: Hyper Text Markup Language
*[W3C]: World Wide Web Consortium

The HTML specification is maintained by the W3C.

Adding a glossary

The Snippets extension can be used to implement a simple glossary by moving all abbreviations in a dedicated file1, and embedding it with the --8<-- notation at the end of each document:

The HTML specification is maintained by the W3C.
*[HTML]: Hyper Text Markup Language
*[W3C]: World Wide Web Consortium

  1. It's highly recommended to put the Markdown file containing the abbreviations outside of the docs folder (here, a folder with the name includes is used), as MkDocs might otherwise complain about an unreferenced file.
