anvil.buildr

anvil.buildr aims to remove the complexities of dealing with concating and minifying script tags. The idea behind the plugin is to take an html file such as...

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <script data-build="vendor" src="js/vendor/jquery.js"></script>
    <script data-build="vendor" src="js/vendor/modernizr.js"></script>
    <script data-build="vendor" src="js/vendor/underscore.js"></script>

    <script data-build="app" src="js/app.js"></script>
    <script data-build="app" src="js/views/home.js"></script>
    <script data-build="app" src="js/routers/index.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

It will read all the script tags, pull all of the references out grouped by the data-build attribute. Then it will concat all of the files specified in the data-build, and run any kind of minification plugins on them. Next, it will output a js file with a default location of js/vendor.build.js or js/app.build.js. And finally, the index.html will be modified to look like...

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <script src="js/vendor.build.js"></script>
    <script src="js/app.build.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

COMING SOON

Some features in the works are the ability to customize the build.json file as such...

```js { "anvil.buildr": { "vendor": { "minify": true, "output": "js/build/vendor.js" }, "app": { "minify": false, "output": "js/build/app.js" } } }
