    grunt-check-copyright

    Grunt plugin to check if copyright is present in files

    Getting Started

    This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.5

    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-check-copyright --save-dev

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

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-check-copyright');

    The "check_copyright" task

    Overview

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

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

    Options

    options.copyrights

    Type: Array Default value: [/(Copyright .*\. All Rights Reserved\.)/]

    An array containing the various copyrights to check in the list of files specified.

    options.lines

    Type: Number Default value: 5

    A number value that is used to check a file first 'n' lines for the copyright.

    Usage Examples

    Default Options

    In this example, the default options are used to do something with whatever. So if the fixtures folder has the files fail.html, fail.js, pass.html and pass.js, the file options only filters for the js files as per the pattern and the generated result in this case would be fail.js since this file doesn't have the copyright notice.

    Note: Here we use the default options for lines and copyright as specified here.

    grunt.initConfig({
      check_copyright: {
        options: {
        },
        files: {
          'default_options': ['test/fixtures/*.js']
        }
      },
    });

    Custom Options

    In this example, custom options are used to do something else with whatever else. So if the fixtures folder has the files fail.html, fail.js, pass.html and pass.js, the file options only filters for the html files as per the pattern and the generated result in this case would be fail.html since this file doesn't have the copyright notice.

    Also, you can see that the copyrights array is trying to match two different format of copyright.

    grunt.initConfig({
      check_copyright: {
        options: {
          copyrights: [/(2016-2017 Company Limited,).*(XXXX, YYYY\. All Rights Reserved\.)/, /(2015-2016 Company Limited, XXXX, YYYY\. All Rights Reserved\.).*(The Company proprietary software program \(\"Program\"\), is protected by copyrights laws, international treaties and other pending or existing intellectual property rights in YYYY, ZZZZ and other countries\.).*(The Program may contain\/reference third party or open source components, the rights to which continue to ).*(remain with the applicable third party licensors or the open source community as the case may be and nothing ).*(here transfers the rights to the third party and open source components, except as expressly permitted\. ).*(Any unauthorized reproduction, storage, transmission in any form or by any means \(including without limitation to electronic, mechanical, printing, photocopying, recording or  otherwise\), or any distribution of this Program,or any portion of it, may result in severe civil and criminal penalties, and will be prosecuted to the maximum extent possible under the law\.)/],
          lines: 6
        },
        files: {
          'custom_options': ['test/fixtures/*.html']
        }
      },
    });
