Replace text patterns with applause.

broccoli-replace

Replace text patterns with applause.

From NPM:

npm install broccoli-replace --save-dev

Assuming installation via NPM, you can use broccoli-replace in your Brocfile.js like this:

var replace = require('broccoli-replace');
module.exports = replace('src', {
  files: [
    '**/*.html' // replace only html files in src 
  ],
  patterns: [
    {
      match: 'foo',
      replacement: 'bar'
    }
  ]
});

Type: Array Default: []

Define the source files that will be used for replacements, you can use globbing via minimatch library.

This is a mandatory value, an empty definition will ignore any kind of replacement.

Type: Array

Define patterns that will be used to replace the contents of source files.

Type: String|RegExp

Indicates the matching expression.

If matching type is String we use a simple variable lookup mechanism @@string (in any other case we use the default regexp replace logic):

{
  patterns: [
    {
      match: 'foo',
      replacement: 'bar'  // replaces "@@foo" to "bar" 
    }
  ]
}

Type: String|Function|Object

Indicates the replacement for match, for more information about replacement check out the String.replace.

You can specify a function as replacement. In this case, the function will be invoked after the match has been performed. The function's result (return value) will be used as the replacement string.

{
  patterns: [
    {
      match: /foo/g,
      replacementfunction () {
        return 'bar'; // replaces "foo" to "bar" 
      }
    }
  ]
}

Also supports object as replacement (we create string representation of object using JSON.stringify):

{
  patterns: [
    {
      match: /foo/g,
      replacement: [1, 2, 3] // replaces "foo" with string representation of "array" object 
    }
  ]
}

Type: Object

If an attribute json found in pattern definition we flatten the object using delimiter concatenation and each key–value pair will be used for the replacement (simple variable lookup mechanism and no regexp support).

{
  patterns: [
    {
      json: {
        "key": "value" // replaces "@@key" to "value" 
      }
    }
  ]
}

Also supports nested objects:

{
  patterns: [
    {
      json: {
        "key": "value",   // replaces "@@key" to "value" 
        "inner": {        // replaces "@@inner" with string representation of "inner" object 
          "key": "value"  // replaces "@@inner.key" to "value" 
        }
      }
    }
  ]
}

For deferred invocations is possible to define functions:

{
  patterns: [
    {
      jsonfunction (done) {
        done({
          key: 'value'
        });
      }
    }
  ]
}

Type: String

If an attribute yaml found in pattern definition will be converted and then processed like json attribute.

{
  patterns: [
    {
      yaml: 'key: value'  // replaces "@@key" to "value" 
    }
  ]
}

For deferred invocations is possible to define functions:

{
  patterns: [
    {
      yamlfunction (done) {
        done('key: value');
      }
    }
  ]
}

Type: String

If an attribute cson found in pattern definition will be converted and then processed like json attribute.

{
  patterns: [
    {
      cson: 'key: \'value\''
    }
  ]
}

For deferred invocations is possible to define functions:

{
  patterns: [
    {
      csonfunction (done) {
        done('key: \'value\'');
      }
    }
  ]
}

Type: Object

This is the old way to define patterns using plain object (simple variable lookup mechanism and no regexp support). You can still use this but for more control you should use the new patterns way.

{
  variables: {
    'key': 'value' // replaces "@@key" to "value" 
  }
}

Type: String Default: @@

The prefix added for matching (prevent bad replacements / easy way).

This only applies for simple variable lookup mechanism.

Type: Boolean Default: true

If set to false, we match the pattern without prefix concatenation (useful when you want to lookup an simple string).

This only applies for simple variable lookup mechanism.

Type: Boolean Default: false

If set to true, we preserve the prefix in target.

This only applies for simple variable lookup mechanism and patterns.replacement is an string.

Type: String Default: .

The delimiter used to flatten when using object as replacement.

Type: Boolean Default: false

If set to true, we preserve the patterns definition order, otherwise these will be sorted (in ascending order) to prevent replacement issues like head / header (typo regexps will be resolved at last).
