grunt-aglio

Grunt plugin to generate aglio documentation

Getting Started

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');

The Aglio task

Overview

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: "custom",
        separator: "\n"
      }
    }
  },
})

Options

options.theme

Type: String Default value: default

The custom theme (a.k.a. theme engine) to use. The default/built-in theme (olio) is used if the custom theme's node package is not installed.

options.theme*

Type: (varies) Default value (varies)

IMPORTANT NOTE: As of aglio 2.x, all theme options are theme-specific (see changelog for details). As a result, this Grunt task does not validate such theme options -- they are passed directly to aglio, so it's possible this task will fail if a theme option is passed with an invalid value. See the default theme's list of options for examples names and values.

options.separator

Type: String Default value: empty string

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

options.filter

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

options.includePath

Type: String Default value: process.cwd()

Base directory for relative includes.

Usage examples

Basic

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: {
        themeVariables: "slate"
      }
    }
  },
})

Basic w/ Filter

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: {
        themeVariables: "slate",
        filter: function(src){
          return "> This documentation is correct as of " + revNum + "\n" + src;
        }
      }
    }
  },
})

Custom Jade Template

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"
      }
    }
  },
})
