This plugin is for creating Grunt tasks that compile Django/Jinja2 -like templates with Paul Armstrong's JavaScript template engine, swig.

grunt-swigtemplates is brand-spankin' new, and while basic functionality is currently working, it's definitely alpha.

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-swigtemplates --save-dev

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


The "swigtemplates" task


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

  swigtemplates: {
    options: {
      templatesDir: 'src'
    compile: {
      options: {},
      dest: 'www/',
      src: ['src/**/*.swig']

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.
