Copy bower installed components to dist folder.
Install this grunt plugin next to your project's Gruntfile.js with:
npm install grunt-bower
Then add this line to your project's
To your Gruntfile.js, add:
Add stripAffix option if you'd like to have lib names with its file type affix to be stripped, things like
bower:dev:dest: 'dest/path'options:stripAffix: true
stripAffix could cause name confliction, use with caution!
If you were using
grunt-bower prior to v0.9.0,
stripJsAffix is now an alias to
If you want to assign different destination folder for other file types:
bower:dev:dest: 'dest/'js_dest: 'dest/js'css_dest: 'dest/styles'
File types without a
[file_type]_dest will go to
fonts_dest is a special case,
otf, are all covered by
fonts_dest for convenience.
images_dest is another special case, 'jpeg', 'jpg', 'gif', 'png', are all covered by
images_dest for convenience.
If you want to have more specific
dest options for certain packages:
bower:dev:dest: 'public/'css_dest: 'public/styles'options:packageSpecific:bootstrap:dest: 'public/fonts'css_dest: 'public/css/bootstrap'
grunt-bower not copying the files you want:
You can ignore some packages if you don't want them to be copied:
bower:dev:dest: 'public/'options:ignorePackages: 'jquery'
If you want the exported files to be organized by package, use
expand option. For example, such config will result in the file structure like this:
bower:dev:dest: 'public/vendor/'options:expand: true
/public /vendor /package1 package1_file1.js package1_file2.js package1.css /package2 package2.js package2.css
Or organized by file type in addition:
bower:dev:dest: 'public/'js_dest: 'public/js/'css_dest: 'public/css/'fonts_dest: 'public/fonts/' //covers font types ['svg','eot', 'ttf', 'woff', 'woff2', 'otf']images_dest: 'public/images/' //covers image types ['jpeg', 'jpg', 'gif', 'png']options:expand: true
/public /js /package1 package1_file1.js package1_file2.js /package2 package2.js /css /package1 package1.css /package2 package2.css
For file path expansion (globbing):
bower:dev:options:packageSpecific:'jquery-ui':keepExpandedHierarchy: truestripGlobBase: truefiles:'ui/minified/jquery-ui.min.js''themes/base/minified/**'
keepExpandedHierarchy default to true (for all dependencies), you have to explicitly set it to
false if you want a flattened output structure.
stripGlobBase to true if you only want to keep the expanded part in the globbing pattern. If you want flattening for all packages do:
This option is passed to
grunt.file.copy as an advanced way to control the file contents that are copied.
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.
