Concat task processor for glov-build

Concatenates the inputs, separated by \n, with optimal run-time caching for quick dynamic reprocessing. Optional processing function that converts an input file into a String or Buffer, pre- and post- strings, configurable sort key, and sourcemap support.

API usage:

const concat = require('glov-build-concat');

gb.task({
  name: ...,
  input: ...,
  ...concat(options),
});

Options

  • output - required output file name
  • preamble - optional string to be prepended to the output (if non-empty, separated by \n from first source). Default: ''.
  • postamble - optional string to be appended to the output (if non-empty, separated by \n from last source). Default: ''.
  • key - optional key name for checking duplicates, also used as a sort key if no comparator is specified. Can be the name of any member of a BuildFile (if no proc is specified) or any custom key on the object returned by your proc. Default: 'relative'.
  • comparator - optional sort comparator for deterministically ordering the outputs. Default: (a,b) => a[key] < b[key] ? -1 : 1
  • proc - optional processing function that takes the job and a file and returns an object with at least a contents member, but may also contain a member named as specified by key to impact sorting / duplicate detection, as well as a priority member which, if provided will cause the element with the higher priority to be output when two items with the same key exist (also considered not duplicates for the purpose of duplicate detection). Default: (job, file, next) => next(null, file). Note: when doing dynamic reprocessing, this will only be called on the files which have changed and were not deleted.
  • sourcemap - optional, set to enable loading/parsing sourcemaps associated with the inputs files and generating a combined sourcemap. May specify { inline: true } or { inline: false }. Specifying true is shorthand for { inline: false } (will output a separate .map file adjacent to the concatenated file). Default: false

Example usage:

const concat = require('glov-build-concat');
gb.task({
  name: 'simple',
  input: '*.txt',
  ...concat({
    output: 'all.txt',
  }),
});

// Example converting a bunch of binary files to a useful .js bundle
const path = require('path');
gb.task({
  name: 'webfs',
  input: '*.bin',
  ...concat({
    preamble: '(function () { var fs = window.fs = {};',
    postamble: '}());',
    key: 'name',
    proc: (job, file, next) => {
      let name = path.basename(file.relative);
      next(null, {
        name,
        contents: `fs.${name}="${file.contents.toString('base64')}";`,
      });
    },
    output: 'webfs.js',
  }),
});

// Example bundling .js files and their associated sourcemaps
gb.task({
  name: 'bundle',
  input: 'other_task:*.js',
  ...concat({
    preamble: '// Bundled.',
    output: 'all.js',
    sourcemap: { inline: true },
  }),
});

// Example with programmatic priority to resolve duplicate names
// input:
//   bar.txt: 'file1 '
//   foo.txt: 'file2 '
//   override/foo.txt: 'file3 '
// output:
//   combined.txt: 'file1 file3 '
gb.task({
  name: 'overrides',
  input: '**/*.txt',
  ...concat({
    key: 'name',
    proc: (job, file, next) => {
      let name = path.basename(file.relative);
      let priority = file.relative.includes('override/') ? 2 : 1;
      next(null, {
        name,
        priority,
        contents: file.contents,
      });
    },
    output: 'combined.txt',
  }),
});
