Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

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-bulldoc --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-bulldoc');

The "bulldoc" task

Overview

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

grunt.initConfig({
  bulldoc: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here.
    },
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
    },
  },
})

Options

options.templateDir

Type: String Default value: 'template/'

Name of the template directory in your documentation folder. You probably don't want to change this.

options.template

Type: String Default value: template.html

Name of the HTML template, where parsed Markdown is injected. This file should be in options.templateDir folder. You probably don't want to change this either.

Usage Examples

First, you will need a template which will be used to generate the documentation. There is one already available in templates/flatdoc, or in node_modules/grunt-bulldoc/templates/flatdoc. Copy files from this folder somewhere, for example into docs/source/. Now you can edit this template however you want. To generate the documentation, add this task into your Gruntfile:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-bulldoc');
grunt.initConfig({
  bulldoc: {
    example: {
      files: { 'docs/result/': 'docs/source/' }
    }
  }
})

Your docs/source/ folder can look like this:

template/
  template.html
  assets/
    ...
first-doc.md
second-doc.md

Then your docs/results/ folder will look like this:

assets/
  ...
first-doc.html
second-doc.html
