grunt-html

Grunt plugin for html validation, using vnu.jar for the actual validation

grunt-html

Grunt plugin for html validation, using the vnu.jar markup checker.

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's Gruntfile.js with:

npm install grunt-html --save-dev

Then add this line to your project's Gruntfile.js:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-html');

Then specify what files to validate in your config:

grunt.initConfig({
  htmllint: {
    all: ["demos/**/*.html", "tests/**/*.html"]
  }
});

For fast validation, keep that in a single group, as the validator initialization takes a few seconds.

Type: Array, String, or RegExp
Default: null

Use this to specify the error message(s) to ignore. For example:

all: {
  options: {
    ignore: 'The “clear” attribute on the “br” element is obsolete. Use CSS instead.'
  },
  src: "html4.html"
}

The ignore option also supports regular expressions. For example, to ignore AngularJS directive attributes:

all: {
  options: {
    ignore: /attribute “ng-[a-z-]+” not allowed/
  },
  src: "app.html"
}

Type: Boolean
Default: false

Set force to true to report errors but not fail the grunt task.

Type: String
Default: null

Allows you to modify the output format. By default, this plugin will use a built-in Grunt reporter. Set the path to your own custom reporter or to one of the provided reporters: checkstyle or json.

Type: String
Default: null

Specify a filepath to output the results of a reporter. If reporterOutput is specified then all output will be written to the given filepath rather than printed to stdout.

Type: Boolean
Default: false

Set absoluteFilePathsForReporter to true to use absolute file paths in generated reports.
