A simple grunt task to generate a project's documentation with Grock.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt 0.4.0

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-grock --save-dev

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


The "grock" task


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

Just adapt the following configuration to generate the structured documentation of your files.

  grock: {
    options: {
      // Grock options 
      index: 'Gruntfile.js',
      out: 'docCustomFolder',
      style: 'thin',
      verbose: true
    files: [
      './','./**/*.js', // Generate documentation for these files 
      '!./docs/**','!./node_modules/**' //  Do not generate documentation for these files 


Take a look at the grock repository to see the list of available options.
Please note that github and git-remote options are not currently available in this grunt plugin.


  • Add github and git-remote options


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
