grunt-yui-config

Generates a YUI config with Grunt. Specifically expands file paths to module definitions with module name, fullpath and requires.

Install

npm install grunt-yui-config --save-dev

Configuration Example

grunt.initConfig({
  yuiConfig: {
    hojberg: {
      options: {
        dest: 'yui_config.js',
        comboBase: 'my/base/path',
        groups: {
          myGroup: {
            comboBase: 'my/other/path',
            modules: ['path/to/my/modules/**/*.js'],
            processPath: function (p) {
              return p.replace('path', 'public');
            },
            excludeFiles: ['path/to/exclude/**/*.js']
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
});

Anything you pass to this will be added to the config, except dest, excludeFiles and processPath which will be removed as the config is being generated.

dest

Give the dest option to provide the output file of the YUI config.

template

Give the template option with a path to a template file used to generate the YUI config. The groups variable is passed to the template.

Example of a template file:

YUI.applyConfig({
  groups:{
    "myGroup":{
      comboBase: "super/<%= groups['myGroup'].hash %>/path",
      modules: {
        <% groups['myGroup'].modules.forEach(function (module, i) { %>
        "<%= module.name %>": {
          requires: <%= JSON.stringify(module.requires) %>,
          path: "<%= module.path %>"
        }<% if (i !== (groups['myGroup'].modules.length - 1)) { %>,<% } %>
        <% }); %>
      }
    }
  }
});

allowModuleOverwrite

Provide the boolean allowModuleOverwrite if you have multiple modules with the same name and the last one should win. Default is false.

processPath

Provide the processPath function to modify the path of the module. This is useful because Grunt sees the module paths relative to the Gruntfile itself.

processName

Provide the processName function to modify the generated name of the module. This is useful when you need to add non YUI modules to your config. By default, the path to the module is intelligently parsed from the result of processedPath, but sometimes, you might want your processPath to add a -min suffix to the generated files. This allows you to return the name of the module so that it does not have the -min.

excludeFiles

use the excludeFiles options to exclude any non YUI modules from to build the config from.

{{hash}} in comboBase

Provide {{hash}} in your comboBase string and it will be interpolated with a sha of the contents of the files in the associated group. This is useful for providing a fully cachable url.
