grunt-gss-compiler Build Status

Compiles .gss files into AST JSON for running with the GSS engine.

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-gss-compiler --save-dev

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


The "gss_compiler" task


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

  gss_compiler: {
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.

Usage Examples

To compile two GSS rule files into a single AST JSON file to be run with the engine, add the following:

  gss_compiler: {
    files: {
      'assets/gss.json': ['gss/somefile.gss', 'gss/anotherfile.gss'],


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 Grunt.
