grunt-overlay

Grunt overlay task - used for copying files over an existing directory structure.

Getting Started

Install the grunt-overlay plugin by adding the latest grunt overlay release to your devDependencies list in your package.json file. Then resolve the dependency by performing npm install on the command line.

This will download the dependencies listed in the package.json (please read the npm documentation for more details on this.)

You will also require the grunt application to be installed (perferably globally) this can be done by entering npm install -g grunt.

Finally you will need to create a grunt.js file from which grunt will use as a reference point for project configuration. (see the example grunt.js for a starting point as to how to use the grunt-overlay task.

Configuration Options

The grunt-overlay task is a grunt multitask meaning that it is assocaited with a number of development profiles. In the following grunt.js initContfig snippet the profile is 'javascript':

    ...
    overlay: {
        javascript: {
            src: ['src/**/*.js'], // source file search path
            dest: 'dest/js',      // the destination folder
            options: {            // options can be omitted
                overwrite: true,  // overwrite existing files (default to false)
                base_path: 'src'  // path segment to ignore in src (default is empty
                                  // or the directories prior to '**' if found).
            }
        }
    }

    ...
