DSS

@version 1.0

DSS, Documented Style Sheets, is a Grunt plugin that exposes a KSS style of comment blocking and parser of CSS, LESS, SASS and SCSS code for UI documentation generation.

Example Comment Block

/**
  * @name Button
  * @description Your standard form button.
  * 
  * @state :hover - Highlights when hovering.
  * @state :disabled - Dims the button when disabled.
  * @state .primary - Indicates button is the primary action.
  * @state .smaller - A smaller button
  * 
  * @markup
  *   <button>This is a button</button>
  */ 

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

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 DSS --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('DSS');

    }
  },
})

      location: __dirname + '/css/',

      parsers: {
        // Finds @link in comment blocks
        link: function(i, line, block){

          // Replace link with HTML wrapped version
          var exp = /(b(https?|ftp|file)://[-A-Z0-9+&@#/%?=~_|!:,.;]*[-A-Z0-9+&@#/%=~_|])/ig;
          line.replace(exp, "<a href='$1'>$1</a>");
          return line;
        }
      }
    }
