grunt-media-query-extractor

Combine and extract media queries for mobile-first responsive design.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.2

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-media-query-extractor --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-media-query-extractor');

The "mqe" task

Overview

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

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

Options

log

Type: boolean Default: false

Log processed media queries.

hideComments

Type: boolean Default: false

Remove comments from processed stylesheets.

breakpointCollections

Type: boolean Default: false

Combine extracted media queries into collections for dynamic stylesheet loading based on breakpoint.

Usage Examples

Default Options

In this example, all the css files in test are processed and moved to the folder tmp

grunt.initConfig({
  mqe: {
    options: {
      log: true
    },
    your_target: {
      files: {
        'tmp': ['test/styles.css']
      }
    }
  }
})

Contributing

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.
