Using

1> Generate a SUMMARY.md Simply

$ cd /path/to/your/book/
$ book sm

or, For example:

$ book sm -r ../sailsjs-docs-gitbook/en -i 0home -u 'myApp' -c 'concepts, reference, userguides' -n "Sails.js 官方文档(中英合辑)"

Note-s or --sortedBy can not be given -, commander.js will parse it an option. But you can set it in book.json as follow.

2> Create a book.json in the book`s root folder

for example:

// test/books/config-json/book.json
{
    "bookname": "json-config-name",
    "outputfile": "test.md",
    "catalog": "all",  // or [chapter1,chapter2, ...]
    "ignores": [],  //Default: '.*', '_book'...
    "unchanged": [], // for example: ['myApp'] -> `myApp` not `My App`
    "sortedBy": "-"
}

then, you can do:

$ book sm

You will get a test.md file:

test.md.jpg

$ book md -l "http://book.btcnodejs.com/index.html" -s "div.className"
