Clean Build Directory and File

Getting Started

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with: npm install grunt-cleanx

Then add this line to your project's grunt.js gruntfile:



Configure which directories or files to delete in your initConfig:

  // ... other configs 
  clean: {
    js : {
     dirs: [
            "./js/dist" (directory name does not contain a slash("/") in last string, but will run well)
        files: [
  // ... other configs 


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.
