    grunt-base64

    A grunt task to base 64 encode files.

    There are a number of good grunt plugins that do slightly more interesting things with base64 encoding like replace image URLs in your stylesheets with data URIs (grunt-image-embed, for instance). This task just wraps node.js's native base64 encoding capabilities into a grunt task; it's up to you to find something interesting to do with the output.

    Getting Started

    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-base64 --save-dev

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

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-base64');

    The "base64" task

    Overview

    In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named base64 to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

    grunt.initConfig({
      base64: {
        your_target: {
          // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
          files: {
            'output.b64': 'input.binary'
          }
        },
      },
    })

    Options

    The base64 task does not take any options beyond which specifying source and destination files.

    Usage Examples

    The base64 task takes a standard files configuration and transforms input files into base64-encoded outputs. It can optionally concatenate multiple inputs together:

    grunt.initConfig({
      base64: {
        files: {
          'dest/testing123.b64': ['src/testing', 'src/123'],
        },
      },
    })

    Contributing

    In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
