Options

Options are placed in the grunt.initConfig section of your grunt.js file in the rackspace object.

  config : {
    authUser : "someCoolUser",
    authKey : "1234567890abcdef1234567890abcdef"
  },
  upload : {
    remotedir : "container"
    testfiles : {
      filename : "test/*",
      remotedir : "site"
    }
  }
}

config

Required options:

  • authUser This is a rackspace username
  • authKey This is a rackspace Api key

Other options:

  • authUrl Url of the rackspace cloud authentication service

upload

upload is a multitask that organizes files into named groups. Example:

...
upload {
  _options : {
    remotedir : "container"
    localdir : "files"
  },
  images : {
    filename : "images/*"
  },
  css : {
    filename : "css/*"
  },
  html : {
    filename : "*",
    localdir : "html"
  },
  disclaimer : {
    filename : "disclaimer.txt"
    remotedir : "misc"
  }
}
...

Required options:

  • filename

Other options:

  • remotedir The location of the remote file: container/dir/subdir/subsubdir, etc.
  • localdir The location of the local file. This path is removed from the remote file location.
    • For example, if you want a local file fun/index.html to show up remotely as just index.html, set filename : "index.html" and localdir : "fun"
  • upload._options.remotedir top-level starting point (or container) for all remote files
  • upload._options.localdir top-level version of localdir (affects all files)

Filenames use the minimatch syntax for matching multiple files
