About This Task

This task invokes the htmlSanityCheck gradle plugin. It is a standalone (batch- and command-line) HTML sanity checker whose role is to detect missing images, dead links and duplicated bookmarks. In docToolchain, the htmlSanityCheck task ensures that generated HTML contains no missing links or other problems. It is the last default task, and creates a report in build/report/htmlchecks/index.html (see example below).
