Grunt plugin to generate aglio documentation

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-aglio --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-aglio');

Run this task with the grunt aglio command.

Task targets, files and options may be specified according to the grunt Configuring tasks guide. Multiple src files will be concatted into a single file before being processed.

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named aglio to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  aglio: {
    your_target:{
      files:{
        "dest/api.html": ["src/docs/section1.md", "src/docs/section2.md"]
      },
      options: {
        theme: "default",
        separator: "\n"
      }
    }
  },
})

Type: String Default value: default

The theme to use, defaults to the default theme. See aglio project for a list of possible template. Actual possible values are default, flatly, slate and cyborg with a multi version for each. i.e. 'default-multi'. You can also pass in the path to your custom Jade templates here. The path is relative to your project root

Type: String Default value: empty string

When multiple source files are provided, the separator is used to combine them together.

Type: Function Default value: function(src) { return src; }

The src is passed through this function before passed into aglio. You can use this step to automatically add any tags, CI badges or build revision content into the src. Windows users can take advantage of this function to remove '\r' characters so that snowcrash will parse their files properly

Type: String Default value: process.cwd()

Base directory for relative includes.

This configuration allows you to split your API definition across multiple files and have it concatted in.

grunt.initConfig({
  aglio: {
    your_target:{
      files:{
        "dest/api.html": ["src/docs/section1.md", "src/docs/section2.md"]
      },
      options: {
        theme: "slate"
      }
    }
  },
})

This allows you to tag your documentation to a particular revision number that you may be using elsewhere

grunt.initConfig({
  aglio: {
    your_target:{
      files:{
        "dest/api.html": ["src/docs/section1.md", "src/docs/section2.md"]
      },
      options: {
        theme: "slate",
        filter: function(src){
          return "> This documentation is correct as of " + revNum + "\n" + src;
        }
      }
    }
  },
})

This configuration allows you to specify your own jade template. A guide on how to write your own can be found at the aglio repo.

grunt.initConfig({
  aglio: {
    your_target:{
      files:{
        "dest/api.html": ["src/docs/section1.md", "src/docs/section2.md"]
      },
      options: {
        theme: "my/templates/colorful"
      }
    }
  },
})
