Grunt-Chain-Shell

Run shell script chainly.

How to use

Basic

loadNpmTasks("grunt-chain-shell");

grunt.initConfig({
    chain : {
        dist : {
            commands : [
                "date >> date.txt"
            ]
        }
    }
});

Use variables

You can define variables in options.vars, and use it as {{key}} in commands.

grunt.initConfig({
    chain : {
        options : {
            vars : {
                destfile : "date.txt"
            }
        },
        dist : {
            commands : [
                "date >> {{destfile}}"
            ]
        }
    }
});

Ignore errors

When shell returns an error, process stops as default. To ignore errors and continue to run the process, start the command with - like Makefile.

grunt.initConfig({
    chain : {
        dist : {
            commands : [
                "-rm foo.txt", // Even if this cause an error, continue to run.
                "touch foo.txt"
            ]
        }
    }
});

Verbose

if options.verbose is true, this print the log. (default is true)

grunt.initConfig({
    chain : {
        options : {
            verbose : false // any log message will not be printed.
        }
    }
});
