This example disabled the project information bar and aligns the Navbar links to the left to mimic a MkDocs layout, it also includes the ‘SuperHero’ Bootswatch theme. The Maven Default Skin link has been provided to compare with this skin.

The purpose of this theme is to allow us to demonstrate various capabilities of the skin to confirm nothing is obviously broken (and to also demonstrate what the skin can deliver.)

Markdown Render Tests

The below sections are provided to test various Markdown elements have translated correctly into a maven site.

Code Example

Below is some embedded JSON to confirm the prettify plugin is working as expected.

  "first name": "Joe",
  "surname": "Bloggs",
  "age":  "26"

Table Example

A simple table to confirm this is rendering correctly.

first name surname age
Joe Bloggs 26

This skin is the best thing ever invented and I include toast in that statement … Well maybe toast is better

This line should be nested


Below is an ordered list:

  1. Bread
  2. Toaster

  • And I think it went Oh oh oh!


The following sections identify the various custom settings used within the site.xml and explains what we expect to result on the page.

Footer Elements

The sections below relate to configuration of the page footer.


Github is one of several source control management solutions supported in the media bar, the Github element has 2 attributes, organisation and repository. organisation is the Github user/organisation to whom the repository belongs, while repository is the Github repository name. The skin will use this to build the URL with the path

<project name="xxx">


I have added a Twitter element to ensure the footer has some content and the icon should appear on the right side of the footer. This will create the url

<project name="xxx">
