Create an Internet-Draft/RFC from markdown with grunt-init, including a web server that does live refreshes of a web page as the source changes.


If you haven't already done so, install grunt-init.

Once grunt-init is installed, place this template in your ~/.grunt-init/ directory. It's recommended that you use git to clone this template into that directory, as follows:

git clone ~/.grunt-init/rfc

(Windows users, see the documentation for the correct destination directory path)

You'll also need:

xml2rfc v2.4.5 or higher, which I suggest installing with:

pip install xml2rfc

and also:

kramdown-rfc2629, which can be installed with:

gem install kramdown-rfc2629


At the command-line, cd into an empty directory, run this command and follow the prompts.

grunt-init rfc

Note that this template will generate files in the current directory, so be sure to change to a new directory first if you don't want to overwrite existing files.

Answer a couple of questions. Install the pre-requisite libraries:

npm install

Then start the server:

grunt server

Your default web browser will pop up with a skeleton RFC. Edit the draft-*.md file in your favorite text editor. When you save the file... look at your browser window.
