Theme Config

Theme config is located under themeConfig in the doc param. For example:

rspress.config.ts
import { defineConfig } from 'rspress/config';

export default defineConfig({
  themeConfig: {
    // ...
  },
});
  • Type: Array
  • Default: []

The nav configuration is an array of NavItem with the following types:

interface NavItem {
  // Navbar text
  text: string;
  // Navbar link
  link: '/';
  // Activation rules for navbar links
  activeMatch: '^/$|^/';
  // svg tag string or image URL(optional)
  tag?: string;
}

activeMatch is used to match the current route, when the route matches the activeMatch rule, the nav item will be highlighted. By default, activeMatch is the link of the nav item.

For example:

rspress.config.ts
import { defineConfig } from 'rspress/config';

export default defineConfig({
  themeConfig: {
    nav: [
      {
        text: 'Home',
        link: '/',
      },
      {
        text: 'Guide',
        link: '/guide/',
      },
    ],
  },
});

Of course, multi-level menus can also be configured in the nav array with the following types:

interface NavGroup {
  text: string;
  // submenu
  items: NavItem[];
  // svg tag string or image URL(optional)
  tag?: string;
}

For example the following configuration:

rspress.config.ts
import { defineConfig } from 'rspress/config';

export default defineConfig({
  themeConfig: {
    nav: [
      {
        text: 'Home',
        link: '/',
      },
      {
        text: 'Guide',
        items: [
          {
            text: 'Getting Started',
            link: '/guide/getting-started',
          },
          {
            text: 'Advanced',
            link: '/guide/advanced',
          },
          // Also support sub group menu
          {
            text: 'Group',
            items: [
              {
                text: 'Personal',
                link: 'http://example.com/',
              },
              {
                text: 'Company',
                link: 'http://example.com/',
              },
            ],
          },
        ],
      },
    ],
  },
});

  items: SidebarItem[];
  // whether to be collapsible
  collapsible?: boolean;
  // Whether to be collapsed by default
  collapsed?: boolean;
  // svg tag string or image URL(optional)
