grunt-git-changedfiles Build Status

Detection of files that have been modified in a local git working tree

Getting Started

If you haven't used grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide.

From the same directory as your project's Gruntfile and package.json, install this plugin with the following command:

npm install grunt-git-changedfiles --save-dev

Once that's done, add this line to your project's Gruntfile:


If the plugin has been installed correctly, running grunt --help at the command line should list the newly-installed plugin's task or tasks. In addition, the plugin should be listed in package.json as a devDependency, which ensures that it will be installed whenever the npm install command is run.

The "git_changedfiles" task

Use the git_changedfiles task to detect which files in your local git working tree have been modified. This can then be used as a filter in other tasks.
