grunt-hogan-client

Compile Hogan Templates into ready to use script include.

Getting Started

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with: npm install grunt-hogan-client

Then add this line to your project's grunt.js gruntfile:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-hogan-client');

Example

given the following config and template

config

  hoganclient: {
    options: {
      variable: 'window.tmpl'
    }
    src: ['templates/**/*.hogan'],
    dest: 'dist/tmpl.js' 
  }

templates

templates/item.hogan

<li>
  <h2>{{title}}<h2>
  <p>{{text}}</p>
</li>

templates/list.hogan

<ul id="a-list">
{{#items}}
  {{>item}}
{{/items}}
</ul>

will output the following script file

dist/tmpl.js

window.tmpl=window.tmpl||{};
window.tmpl.item=Hogan.compile('<li><h2>{{title}}</h2><p>{{text}}</p></li>');
window.tmpl.list=Hogan.compile('<ul id="a-list">{{#items}}{{>item}}{{/items}}</ul>');

ready to use/include/concat etc in your app like this.

tmpl.list.render({ items: [] });

Wrapping the templates.

I made this plugin for a very specific case where I also needed to wrap the templates in some code due to async loading of Hogan using head.js.

Since this task is a code generator I decided to add the wrap property to the options.

config

options: {
  wrap: {
    start: 'head.ready(function() {',
    end: '});'
  }
}

Todo

I guess there will be need to tweek the regex that cleans the template.
