Plugins for js build


Aggregates file groups (aka aggregations): Minifies files with include/exclude wildcards, creates an index and debug index of the minified files, and runs lint and copy tasks. GruntAggregator also include a modify task, which allows manipulation of file name and content

Aggregate is a multitask, which creates multiple minified files, copies the original files (for debugging) and creates an {index}.json file with aggregation mapping. In addition, a {index}.debug.json if created, mapping the full, unminified version of the content. This is useful if you're running your application in debug mode.
