Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

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, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-dalek --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-dalek');

The "dalek" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named dalek to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  dalek: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here.
    },
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
    },
  },
})

Options

options.dalekfile

Type: Boolean Default: true

Grunt should load the config options from your Dalekfile

options.browser

Type: Array Default: ['phatnomjs']

The browsers you would like to test Note: For other browsers than PhantomJS, you need to have the Dalek browser plugin installed.

options.reporter

Type: Array Default: null

The reporters you would like to invoke Note: For other reporters than the grunt console output, you need to have the corresponding Dalek reporter plugin installed.

options.advanced

Type: Object Default: null

All the options you else would define in your Dalekfile. This overwrites the contents of your Dalekfile.

Examples

Configuration Example

Basic example of a Grunt config containing the dalek task.

grunt.initConfig({
  dalek: {
    dist: {
      src: ['test/example/test-github.js']
    }
  }

});

/**
 * Loads tasks located in the tasks directory.
 */
grunt.loadTasks('tasks');

grunt.registerTask('default', ['dalek']);

Multiple Files

Running dalekjs against multiple files.

dalek: {
  dist: {
    src: ['test/example/test-dkd.js','test/example/test-github.js']
  }
}

Specifying Options

dalek: {
    options: {
      // invoke phantomjs, chrome & chrome canary
      browser: ['phantomjs', 'chrome', 'chrome:canary'],
      // generate an html & an jUnit report
      reporter: ['html', 'junit'],
      // don't load config from an Dalekfile
      dalekfile: false,
      // specify advanced options (that else would be in your Dalekfile)
      advanced: {
        // specify a port for chrome
        browsers: [{
          chrome: {
            port: 4000
          }
        }]
      }
    }
}
