grunt-pa11y

Automated accessibility testing with Pa11y.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.5

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-pa11y --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-pa11y');

The "pa11y" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named pa11y to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  pa11y: {
    options: {
      url: 'google.com'
    }
  },
});

Options

options.url

Type: String Default value: 'google.com'

The URL to sniff. Required.

Usage Examples

Default Options

Running the task without any options will fail as the url is required.

grunt.initConfig({
  pa11y: {
    options: {}
  },
});

Custom Options

In this example, you are testing the url against the WCAG2AAA standard.

grunt.initConfig({
  pa11y: {
    options: {
      url: 'google.com',
      standard: 'WCAG2AAA'
    }
  },
});

Multiple URLs

In this example, you are testing the multiple urls against the WCAG2AAA standard.

grunt.initConfig({
  pa11y: {
    options: {
      url: ['google.com', 'yahoo.com'],
      standard: 'WCAG2AAA'
    }
  },
});
