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-qpoc-closure-compiler --save-dev

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


The "qpoc_closure_compiler" task


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

  qpoc_closure_compiler: {
    your_mode: {
      options: {
        // Task-specific options go here.

        // path to compiler.jar of google closure compiler
        // default: environment variable CLOSURE_COMPILER
        closureCompiler: './compiler.jar',

        // path to the closure library folder which contains "closure",
        // "third_party" ...
        // default: environment variable CLOSURE_LIBRARY
        closureLibrary: '/closure-library/',

        // Java executable path
        // default: 'java'
        javaPath: 'java',

        // whether automaticaly add the closure library to the pathes
        includeClosureLibrary: true, // default: true

        workspaces: [
            // paths to libraries which are required in your application
            path: './lib/'
          // ... further ones

        // defines the way you want to split your application
        modules: [
          // define your main module at the start
          // it's required to define one main module which will be the
          // dependency of all further modules
            // path to the initiate script of the module
            path: './lib/init.js',

            // name of the module
            name: 'app'

            path: './lib/the_mod.js',
            name: 'the_mod',
            // array of modules which are required
            dependencies: ['app']

        level: {
          advanced: true // default is false

        // formatting of the code exported by the compiler
        prettyPrint: false, // default is true

        // path for the generated files
        // default: ./tmp/
        outputDir: '.',

        // prefix for the exported module javascript files.
        // example: module name "app", prefix: "module_"
        // => "#{ outputDir }/module_app.js"
        modulePrefix: '',

        // automaticaly exports a into the outputDir
        sourceMaps: true // default: false
