Grunt task to dump assets from symfony2 assetic config.yml to physical files

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 grunt-assetic-dump --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-assetic-dump');

The "assetic_dump" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile.js, add a section named assetic_dump to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  assetic_dump: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here.
    },
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
    },
  },
});

Options

options.banner

Type: String Default value: empty string

This string will be prepended to the beginning of the output fole.

Type: String Default value: empty string

This string will be append to the end of the output file.

options.configFile

Type: String Default value: app/config/config.yml

Your symfony config file where your assets are defined

options.assetsBaseDir

Type: String Default value: web/

Base dir of your inputs assets (relative to Gruntfile.js)

options.webDir

Type: String Default value: web/

Target dir where your output file will be saved (relative to Gruntfile.js)

Usage Examples

I sugest to put your assets in bundles public directories and install them in web/ dir via php app/console assets:install --symlink. Then you have to set up your assets in config file like:

# app/config/config.yml
assetic:
    # ...
    assets:
        all_css:
            inputs:
                - 'bundles/bundle-name/normalize.css'
                - 'bundles/bundle-name/screen.css'
            output: 'css/all.css'
        all_js:
            inputs:
                - 'bundles/bundle-name/jquery.js'
                - 'bundles/bundle-name/app.js'
            output: 'js/all.js'

Then you can dump them to filesystem via:

grunt.initConfig({
  // ...
  assets_dump: {
    prod: {}
  }
});

Custom config file

You can also put your assets config in separate file (for example app/config/assets.yml) and include then in your app/config/config.yml.

Then you can dump them to filesystem via:

grunt.initConfig({
  // ...
  assets_dump: {
    prod: {
      configFile: 'app/config/assets.yml'
    }
  }
});
