Combine AngularJS partials into a single HTML file.

grunt-angular-combine

Combine AngularJS partials into a single HTML file.

This plugin is helpful for better performance in AngularJS template loading. You can use it to prepare templates for angular-combine.

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-angular-combine --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-angular-combine');

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named angularCombine to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  angularCombine: {
    combine: {
      files : [ {
        cwd : 'app/modules',
        src : [ 'module1/foo.html', 'module2/woot.html' ],
        dest : 'tmp/combined/modules.html'
      } ]
    }
  }
})
 
// or 
 
grunt.initConfig({
  angularCombine: {
    combine: {
      files : [ {
        expand : true,
        cwd : 'app/modules',
        src : '*',
        dest : 'tmp/combined',
        filter : 'isDirectory'
      } ]
    },
  }
})

The default process doesn't need any option but which folder should be processed.

Type: function Default: function(id) { return id; }

grunt.initConfig({
  angularCombine : {
    combine : {
      options : {
        processIdentifier : function(id) {
          // just use the files name without extension as identifier 
          return id.split('/').pop().replace('.html', '');
        }
      },
      files : [ {
        expand : true,
        cwd : 'app/modules',
        src : '*',
        dest : 'tmp/combined',
        filter : 'isDirectory'
      } ]
    }
  }
})

With the processIdentifier options, you can define the fragment id strategy. By default, with the following files structures :

* app/modules
  * module1/
    * module1-template1.html
    * module1-template2.html
    * module1-template3.html

you'll get those fragment id :

  • module1/module1-template1.html
  • module1/module1-template2.html
  • module1/module1-template3.html

With the function defined into options (like the example above, you'll get :

  • module1-template1
  • module1-template2
  • module1-template3

Type: boolean Default: true

grunt.initConfig({
  angularCombine : {
    combineWithoutComment : {
      options : {
        includeComments : false
      },
      files : [ {
        expand : true,
        cwd : 'test/fixtures',
        src : 'combineWithoutComment',
        dest : 'tmp/combined',
        filter : 'isDirectory'
      } ]
    }
  }
})
 
This will remove the comment at the begining of the compiled files.
This should be a problem as template would certainly be minified anyway later in the delivery process.
 
 
### Usage Examples
 
Imagine a file structure like this :
 
  • app/modules
    • module1/
      • module1-template1.html
      • module1-template2.html
      • module1-template3.html
    • module2/
      • module2-template1.html
      • module2-template2.html
 
With this grunt config :
 
```js
grunt.initConfig({
  angularCombine : {
    combine : {
      files : [ {
        expand : true,
        cwd : 'app/modules',
        src : '*',
        dest : 'tmp/combined',
        filter : 'isDirectory'
      } ]
    }
  },
})

By using the filter isDirectory, the plugin will process all HTML files found into each directory of you selection. So that, you will get :

* tmp/combined
  * module1.html (containing the concatenation of module1-template1.html, module1-template2.html and module1-template3.html)
  * module2.html (containing the concatenation of module2-template1.html and module2-template2.html)

By defaults, it works in the current base directory.
