Build documentations using YUIDOC
Generate the documentation of your projects using YUIDOC
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, install this plugin with this command:
npm install grunt-build-docs --save-dev
Run this task with the
grunt docs command.
This task is a [multi task] so any targets, files and options should be specified according to the [multi task] documentation. [multi task]: https://github.com/gruntjs/grunt/wiki/Configuring-tasks
This plugin is compatible with grunt 0.4.0rc7
Settings mirror YUIDoc config.
First possibility: Create a documentation for each directory
docs:compile:name: "Example"description: 'Example Description'version: '1.0'url: ''options:outdir: "docs" // path or name of the documentation directoryfiles: expand: true flatten: true cwd: "test/tests" src: "*" dest: "test/tests"
If you want to create a index page that list and link all the available documentations (Usefull if several parts of your project own a documentation)
options:indexdir: "test/tmp/indexdocs" // Path to the index pageindextheme: "themes/simpleIndex" // Optional, if you want to use a custom theme
Second possibility: Create a commun documentation (Because the dest is the same for all directories)
docs:compile:name: "Example"description: 'Example Description'version: '1.0'url: ''options:outdir: "../docs"files: expand: true flatten: true cwd: "test/tests" src: "*" dest: "test/tmp"
All these examples are tested in the plugin, you can see how it works by runnning "grunt test" inside the plugin.
