grunt-build-number

Grunt plugin for maintaining a build number in package.json (or another file)

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt.

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-build-number --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-build-number');

The "build_number" task

Overview

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

grunt.initConfig({
  buildnumber: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here.
    },
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
    },
  },
})

(due to how grunt handles tasks this buildnumber object has to be present in the grunt configuration and has to have at least one target defined, even when using the default options. Just leave the object empty, e.g. buildnumber: { package:{} })

Options

options.field

Type: String Default value: build

A string value that is used as the name of the field in the json file to store the build number.

Usage Examples

Default Options

//Gruntfile.js
grunt.initConfig({
  buildnumber: {
    package : {}
  }
})
$ grunt buildnumber

The task will search for the package.json file in your project, load it and bump/create the build field. Output will be similar to:

Running "buildnumber:package" (buildnumber) task
>> Build number set to "463" in "package.json".
 
Done, without errors.

Custom Options

grunt.initConfig({
  buildnumber: {
    options: {
      field: 'buildnum',
    },
    files: ['package.json', 'bower.json']
  }
})

This will update a buildnum field inside package.json and bower.json.

Contributing

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
