grunt-depconcat

Concat depended files

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-depconcat --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-depconcat');

The "depconcat" task

Overview

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

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

Options

separator

Type: String
Default: grunt.util.linefeed

Concatenated files will be joined on this string. If you're post-processing concatenated JavaScript files with a minifier, you may need to use a semicolon ';' as the separator.

requireEmplate

Type: String
Default: \\/\\/@require\\s+([^\\n\\r]+)[\\n\\r]*

The RegExp string of depended indication.

ext

Type: String
Default: .js

The extname for files.

except

Type: Array
Default: []

The excepted files.

Usage Examples

basic usage for js

In this example, when 1.js require 2.js, and 2.js require 3.js, the Concatenated files will be joined as 3.js + 2.js + 1.js.

require js file like this:

//@require 1
//@require 2

concatenat them:

grunt.initConfig({
  depconcat: {
    options: {},
    files: {
      'dest/all.js': ['src/1.js', 'src/2.js', 'src/3.js'],
    },
  },
})

basic usage for css

In this example, when 1.css import 2.css , and 2.css import 3.css, the Concatenated files will be joined as 3.css + 2.css + 1.css.

require css file like this as usual:

@import url("1.css");
@import url("2.css");

concatenat them:

grunt.initConfig({
  depconcat: {
    options: {},
    files: {
      'dest/all.css': ['assets/1.css', 'src/2.css', 'src/3.css'],
    },
  },
})

except files

grunt.initConfig({
  depconcat: {
    options: {
          except: ['zepto.js']
      },
    files: {
      'dest/all.js': ['src/*.js'],
    },
  },
})

use custom requiteTemplate

In this example, we have some tepmlate files named 1.tpl, 2.tpl, 3.tpl.

require template file lik this:

//@extend 1
//@extend 2

concatenat them:

grunt.initConfig({
  depconcat: {
    options: {
          ext: '.tpl',
          requiteTemplate: '\\/\\/@extend\\s+([^\\n\\r]+)[\\n\\r]*'
      },
    files: {
      'dest/all.tpl': ['templates/*.tpl'],
    },
  },
})

use depended tree

In this example, we have a depended tree for files, like this:

{
    '1.js': ['2.js', '3.js'],
    '2.js': ['4.js']
    '3.js': [],
    '4.js': []
}

concatenat them:

grunt.initConfig({
  depconcat: {
    options: {},
    my_target: {
        tree: {
            '1.js': ['2.js', '3.js'],
            '2.js': ['4.js']
            '3.js': [],
            '4.js': []
        },
      dest: 'dest/all.js'
    },
  },
})

or specific a filepath:

grunt.initConfig({
  depconcat: {
    options: {},
    my_target: {
        tree: 'src/.tree',
      dest: 'dest/all.js'
    },
  },
})

Warning

Be careful of "Circular Dependency". We will support to check it in the future.
