grunt-scorm-manifest

Generate a valid SCORM IMS manifest file.

grunt-scorm-manifest

A grung plugin that generates a valid SCORM IMS manifest file.

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.2

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-scorm-manifest --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-scorm-manifest');

Run this task with the grunt scorm_manifest command.

Task targets, files and options may be specified according to the grunt Configuring tasks guide.

Node Libraries Used: xmlbuilder-js (for xml generation).

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

grunt.initConfig({
  scorm_manifest: {
    your_target: {
        options: {
          // Options go here 
        },
        files: {
          // File declaration goes here 
        },
    },
  },
});

Type: String Default value: '2004' Possible values: 2004||1.2

This is used to define which version of SCORM will be applied to the manifest.

Type: String Default value: 'CourseID'

This is used to define the top-level course ID.

Type: String Default value: 'SCO Title'

This is used (by <organization />) to define the SCO title.

Type: String Default value: 'Module'

This is used (by <item />) to define the SCO module title.

Type: String Default value: 'index.html'

This is used to define the launchpage of the SCO.

Type: String Default value: './'

This is used to define the path to which imsmanifest.xml will be written.

This example creates a SCORM 2004 3rd Edition IMS manifest. The manifest will be written to the project directory and will include files in the project directory and all subdirectories.
