gloup

NPM version

Another mini task runner based on bach

Deprecated

This project is no longer maintained.

Features

  • One task = one file = one function
  • Task on the command line are executed in series
  • Compose task in parallel or in series (based on bach)
  • Supports node's (or iojs) flags on the command line

This tool as been drafted for some specific needs: use it if you like, enhance it if you don't. Else gulp is a better fit for you.

Installation

npm install --save gloup

Usage

With the folder structure below:

├─ myapp
└─ tasks
   ├─ bundle.js
   ├─ clean.js
   ├─ dev.js
   ├─ dist.js
   ├─ statics.js
   └─ serve.js

myapp: The executable main script (chmod +x myapp)

#!/usr/bin/env node
var gloup = require('gloup')
gloup(__dirname + '/tasks')

tasks/clean.js: A task must export a function that return anything async-done supports (stream, promise, etc.)

var del = require('promised-del')
var resolve = require('path').resolve
 
module.exports = function () {
  return del(['build'], {
    cwd: resolve(__dirname, '../../')
  })
}

tasks/dist.js: You can compose tasks using tasks name (based on filename) or function

var series = require('gloup').series(__dirname)
var parallel = require('gloup').parallel(__dirname)
 
module.exports = series([
  'clean',
  parallel('bundle','statics'),
  function () {
    return new Promise(function (resolve, reject) {
      // ...
    })
  }
])

Now, myapp can be used as a task runner

> myapp clean bundle serve
  gloup ⇢ clean +0ms
  gloup ⇠ clean +0ms
  gloup ⇢ bundle +1s
  gloup ⇠ bundle +6s
  gloup ⇢ serve +0ms
  gloup ⇠ serve +2ms

Start a composed task

> myapp dist
  gloup ⇢ clean +0ms
  gloup ⇠ clean +0ms
  gloup ⇢ bundle +1s
  gloup ⇢ statics +1s
  gloup ⇠ bundle +6s
  gloup ⇠ statics +6s
  gloup ⇢ serve +0ms
  gloup ⇠ serve +2ms

With node options:

> myapp --debug --es_staging serve
Debugger listening on port 5858
  gloup ⇢ serve +0ms
  gloup ⇠ serve +2ms

Quiet mode (remove gloup messages):

> myapp serve --quiet

api

Create a command line tool

#!/usr/bin/env node
var gloup = require('gloup')
 
// Path to the tasks folder
gloup(__dirname + '/tasks')
 
// Force node (iojs) flags
gloup(__dirname + '/tasks', {
  flags: ['--es_staging']
})

Use series and parallel composer (just a convenient wrapper around bach) to compose tasks with name.

// gloup.series(taskFolder) -> {function} :
var series = require('gloup').series(__dirname)
// gloup.parallel(taskFolder) -> {function} :
var parallel = require('gloup').parallel(__dirname)
module.exports = series(['clean', parallel('bundle','statics')])
