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

Getting Started

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:


The "scorm_manifest" task

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().

  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.

Usage Example

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.

// simple single SCO package
scorm_manifest: {
    options: {
        version: '2004',
        courseId: 'GRUNT101',
        SCOtitle: 'Intro to Grunt',
        moduleTitle: 'AU101',
        launchPage: 'the_launchpage.html',
        path: './'
    files: [{
                expand: true,         // required
                cwd: './',             // start looking for files to list in the same dir as Gruntfile 
                src: ['**/*.*'],     // file selector (this example includes subdirectories)
                filter: 'isFile'    // required
