gulp-out

Output gulp files with destination files based on the original but varying in a patterned way.

Usage

The gulp-out task takes a pattern parameter with the following replacement placeholders

{basename} - the base name of the file without the directory and without the extension e.g. for /Users/dylanb/myproj/css/mycss.css, {basename} will be mycss.

{extension} - the extension of the file with the . e.g. for /Users/dylanb/myproj/css/mycss.css, {extension} will be .css.

{filename} - the full name of the file without the directory. e.g. for /Users/dylanb/myproj/css/mycss.css, {filename} will be mycss.css.

Example

If you have a CSS minifier and you would like the output to go to a file with .min in the name, then the gulpfile task will look like::

var minifyCSS = require('gulp-minify-css'),
    out = require('gulp-out');

gulp.task('minify-css', function() {
  gulp.src('./testsupport/*.css')
    .pipe(minifyCSS({}))
    .pipe(out('./testoutput/{basename}.min{extension}'))
});
