Running @scriptappy/from-jsdoc without any arguments will use the default values.

npx @scriptappy/cli from-jsdoc

More options can be set through a config file:

npx @scriptappy/cli from-jsdoc -c path/to/config.js


module.exports = {
  fromJsdoc: {
    glob: ['./src/**/*.js'], // globby patterns to source files
    package: './package.json', // path to package.json

        exclude: undefined, // an array of black-listed tags (not used if 'include' is an array), e.g. ['owner']
      filter(doclet) { return true; },// filter out doclets
      rules: {

Parsing rules work a lot like eslint rules and are meant to warn/error when weirds things are found in the jsdoc comments.
