Usage Examples

Default Options

In this example, the default options are used for publication, the package name and version will get auto created in Bintray with values from the project's package.json file. All *.js files located in the project's dist directory will get uploaded under the project's version directory.

grunt.initConfig({
  bintrayDeploy: {
    bintray: {
      options: {
        user: "bintray_user",
        apikey: "bintray_api_key",
        pkg: {
          repo: "repo",
        }
      },
      files: [{
        expand: true,
        flatten: true,
        src: ["dist/*.js"],
        dest: "<%= pkg.version %>",
        filter: "isFile"
      }]
    }
  },
})

Custom Options

In this example, we are using custom properties and override the default ones.

grunt.initConfig({
  bintrayDeploy: {
    bintray: {
      options: {
        user: "bintray_user",
        apikey: "bintray_api_key",
        pkg: {
          repo: "repo",
          userOrg: "someOrganization",
          name: "packageName",
          version: "pacakgeVersion",
          desc: "A cool package description",
          licenses: ["Apache2"],
          labels: ["cool", "package"]
        }
      },
      files: [{
        expand: true,
        flatten: true,
        src: ["dist/*.js"],
        dest: "<%= pkg.version %>",
        filter: "isFile"
      }]
    }
  },
