grunt-bower-clean

Remove files (e.g. docs, tests, etc.) from installed bower components

Getting Started

Install the plugin:

npm install grunt-bower-clean --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed enable it in your Gruntfile:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-bower-clean');

Usage

In your bower.json file configure dependenciesIgnore like so:

{
  "name": "my-app",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "dependencies": {
    "backbone": "0.9.2",
    "when": "~2.1.1"
  },
  "dependenciesIgnore": {
    "backbone": ["**/!(backbone.js)"],
    "when": ["docs", "test", "*.!(js)", ".*"]
  }
}

Then after

bower install

running

grunt bower_clean

will remove all files from bower_components/backbone except for backbone.js and .bower.json and from bower_components/when, docs and test directories will be removed as well as all non JS and dot files (except for .bower.json). This works exactly like bower's own ignore option (see https://github.com/bower/bower#defining-a-package for more info).

Use --dry-run option to see the list of files that will be removed.

grunt bower_clean --dry-run
