gulp-ignore status

Include or exclude gulp files from the stream based on a condition

Usage

1: Exclude things from the stream

Exclude things from entering the stream

var uglify = require('gulp-uglify');

gulp.task('task', function() {
  gulp.src(['./*.js', '!./node_modules/**'])
    .pipe(uglify())
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./dist/'));
});

Grab all JavaScript files that aren't in the node_modules folder, uglify them, and write them. This is fastest because nothing in node_modules ever leaves gulp.src()

2: Remove things from the stream

Remove from here on

var gulpIgnore = require('gulp-ignore');
var uglify = require('gulp-uglify');
var jshint = require('gulp-jshint');

var condition = './gulpfile.js';

gulp.task('task', function() {
  gulp.src('./*.js')
    .pipe(jshint())
    .pipe(gulpIgnore.exclude(condition))
    .pipe(uglify())
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./dist/'));
});

Run JSHint on everything, remove gulpfile from the stream, then uglify and write everything else.

3: Filter only matching things

Include from here on

var gulpIgnore = require('gulp-ignore');
var uglify = require('gulp-uglify');
var jshint = require('gulp-jshint');

var condition = './public/**.js';

gulp.task('task', function() {
  gulp.src('./*.js')
    .pipe(jshint())
    .pipe(gulpIgnore.include(condition))
    .pipe(uglify())
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./dist/'));
});

Run JSHint on everything, filter to include only files from in the public folder, then uglify and write them.

4: Conditionally filter content, include everything down-stream

Condition

var gulpif = require('gulp-if');
var uglify = require('gulp-uglify');

var condition = true; // TODO: add business logic

gulp.task('task', function() {
  gulp.src('./src/*.js')
    .pipe(gulpif(condition, uglify()))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./dist/'));
});

Only uglify the content if the condition is true, but send all the files to the dist folder

API

exclude(condition)

Exclude files whose file.path matches, include everything else

include(condition)

Include files whose file.path matches, exclude everything else

condition

Type: boolean or stat object or function that takes in a vinyl file and returns a boolean or RegularExpression that works on the file.path

The condition parameter is any of the conditions supported by gulp-match. The file.path is passed into gulp-match.

If a function is given, then the function is passed a vinyl file. The function should return a boolean.
