A grunt plugin to force other tasks to continue after failures

Inspired by and extended from this answer by explunit on StackOverflow

Usage

Install next to your project's Gruntfile.js with:

$ npm install grunt-continue

Here is a simple example gruntfile to show how you might force grunt to continue after failing tests if you have some cleanup that you need to perform afterward

module.exports = function(grunt) {

  // Add the grunt-continue tasks
  grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-continue');

  // Other tasks and configuration
  ...

  grunt.registerTask('default', [
    'setup',
    'continueOn',
    // All tasks after this point will be run with the force
    // option so that grunt will continue after failures
    'test',
    'continueOff',
    // Tasks after this point will be run without the force
    // option so that grunt exits if they fail
    'cleanup'
  ]);

};

continueOff does not turn off the continuing if --force was specified at the command line.

If continueOn is called muliple times continueOff must be called that many times in order to stop continuing.

If continueOff is called more times than continueOn it will fail.

Contributing

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using:

$ npm test

Using Vagrant

To use the Vagrantfile you will also need to install the following vagrant plugins

$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-omnibus
$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-berkshelf
