Generate json from google docs with archieml

Important: this is an MVP version. Proceed with caution.

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-google-archieml --save-dev

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


The "archieml" task


This plugin works with ArchieML to parse Google Docs and convert them into json files. You'll first have to get your own API credentials to work with Google's OAuth2.0 Drive API. You can do that here by setting up a new project. Then, go to credentials and set up a new Client ID for OAuth2.0 (for a web application). Set the javascript origins as and the redirect URIs as When you're done setting it up, download the JSON for your web application's Client ID, and save it inside a config directory in your project as client_secret.json.

You'll also need the file ID of the Google Doc you've written in ArchieML.

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

  archieml: {
    options: {
      credentials:'config/client_secrets.json', //or whatever the path is to your google api client secrets
      fileID: 'id_of_google_doc_youre_referencing'


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.
