Frequently Asked Questions
Is Retype free to use?
Yes, but with limitations.
There are two limitations:
- Maximum of 100 pages can be built
Powered by Retypebranding cannot be removed
It is possible to remove both those limitations with Retype Pro.
Can I get a trial license key?
Absolutely. Please use the following button to create a free 10-day trial license key.
Trial keys can only be created once per domain or sub-domain.
How do I install Retype?
Installing Retype is super simple and takes only a few seconds. Please see our Getting Started guide for detailed installation instructions.
If you ain't got no time for that, just run the following two commands on a folder that contains at least one
.md file, depending on your preferred package manager.
npm install retypeapp --global retype watch
yarn global add retypeapp retype watch
dotnet tool install retypeapp --global retype watch
What is page metadata?
The block of page metadata must be the first item at the top of the
.md page and must be added between
--- lines above and below the configs.
--- icon: rocket --- # Your page title here
The page metadata is completely optional and typically only required when you want to override the Retype defaults.
You can also add page metadata into a separate
.yml file, see page config options.
