grunt-sed

Built on top of replace, grunt-sed is a Grunt plugin for performing search and replace on files.

Installation

Install grunt-sed using npm:

$ npm install grunt-sed

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-sed');

Usage

This plugin is a multi task, meaning that Grunt will automatically iterate over all exec targets if a target is not specified.

Properties

  • path - File or directory to search. Defaults to '.'.
  • pattern - String or regex that will be replaced by replacement. Required.
  • replacement - The string that will replace pattern. Can be a function. Required.
  • recursive - If true, will recursively search directories. Defaults to false.

Example

grunt.initConfig({
  pkg: grunt.file.readJSON('package.json'),

  sed: {
    version: {
      pattern: '%VERSION%',
      replacement: '<%= pkg.version %>',
      recursive: true 
    }
  }
});
