videojs-doc-generator v0.0.1

Documentation generator for the Video.js codebase and plugins

Video.js Doc Generator

The Video.js Doc Generator reads source files and generates markdown docs. It relies on a combination of AST parsing (using esprima) and JSDoc-style tags.

Getting Started

The doc generator is primarily used as a Grunt plugin.

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 videojs-doc-generator --save-dev

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


The "vjsdocs" task


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

  vjsdocs: {
    all: {
      // array of source paths
      src: ['src/file.js'],

      // output directory, default is 'docs'
      dest: 'docs/api'
      options: {
        // The location online where the source files live
        baseURL: ''


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
