grunt-commonjs-handlebars Build Status

Precompile Handlebars templates into commonjs modules.

Getting Started

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, install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-commonjs-handlebars --save-dev

Handlebars task

Run this task with the grunt handlebars command.

This task is a multi task so any targets, files and options should be specified according to the multi task documentation.

Usage Examples

handlebars: {
  dist: {
    files: {
      "path/to/result.js": "path/to/source.hbs",
      "path/to/another.js": ["path/to/sources/*.hbs", "path/to/more/*.hbs"]

  //This is an example to convert each .hbs into its own .js file.
  dev: {
    files: grunt.file.expandMapping(['app/views/templates/**/*.hbs'], 'tmp/views/templates/', {
      rename: (destBase, destPath) ->
        return destBase + destPath.split('app/views/templates/')[1].replace /\.hbs$/, '.js'
