Easy way to define specific target configuration.

grunt-config Build Status NPM Version

Easy way to define specific target configuration.

Getting Started

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-config --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-config);

Config task

Run this task with the grunt config command.

Task targets and options may be specified according to the grunt Configuring tasks guide. ### Options

variables

Type: Object

This option is used to define the variables to be exported in grunt.config object.

options: {
  variables: {
    'foo': 'bar'
  }
}

silent

Type: Boolean Default: false

If set to true, removes the output from stdout.

Usage Examples

config: {
  dev: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'environment': 'development'
      }
    }
  },
  prod: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'environment': 'production'
      }
    }
  }
}

Environment variable in source (with grunt-replace)

File build/environment.txt:

@@environment

Gruntfile:

config: {
  dev: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'environment': 'development'
      }
    }
  },
  prod: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'environment': 'production'
      }
    }
  }
},
 
replace: {
  dist: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'environment': '<%= grunt.config.get("environment") %>'
      },
      force: true
    },
    files: [
      {expand: true, flatten: true, src: ['build/environment.txt'], dest: 'public/'}
    ]
  }
}
 
// development 
grunt.registerTask('dev', ['config:dev', 'replace']);
 
// production 
grunt.registerTask('prod', ['config:prod', 'replace']);

Handlebars environment partials (with assemble)

Gruntfile:

config: {
  dev: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'partials': ['assets/partials/dev/*.hbs']
      }
    }
  },
  dist: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'partials': ['assets/partials/dist/*.hbs']
      }
    }
  }
},
 
assemble: {
  dist: {
    options: {
      partials: '<%= grunt.config.get("partials") %>',
      ext: '.html'
    },
    files: [
      {expand: true, cwd: 'assets/templates', src: ['**/*.hbs'], dest: 'tmp/templates'}
    ]
  }
}
 
// development 
grunt.registerTask('dev', ['config:dev', 'assemble']);
 
// production 
grunt.registerTask('prod', ['config:prod', 'assemble']);

Dynamic options (with grunt-contrib-concat)

Gruntfile:

config: {
  dev: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'concatOptions': {
          banner: '(function dev () {',
          footer: '}());'
        }
      }
    }
  },
  prod: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'concatOptions': {
          banner: '(function prod () {',
          footer: '}());'
        }
      }
    }
  }
},
 
concat: {
  dist: {
    options: {
      process: function (src, filepath) {
        var concatOptions = grunt.config.get('concatOptions');
        return concatOptions.banner + '\n' + src +
          concatOptions.footer + '\n';
      }
    },
    files: [
      {expand: true, flatten: true, src: ['test/fixtures/concat.txt'], dest: 'tmp/'}
    ]
  }
}
 
// development 
grunt.registerTask('dev', ['config:dev', 'concat']);
 
// production 
grunt.registerTask('prod', ['config:prod', 'concat']);

Gruntfile (using grunt templates):

config: {
  dev: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'concatOptions': {
          banner: '(function dev () {',
          footer: '}());'
        }
      }
    }
  },
  prod: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'concatOptions': {
          banner: '(function prod () {',
          footer: '}());'
        }
      }
    }
  }
},
 
concat: {
  dist: {
    options: {
      banner: '<%= grunt.config.get("concatOptions").banner %>',
      footer: '<%= grunt.config.get("concatOptions").footer %>'
    },
    files: [
      {expand: true, flatten: true, src: ['test/fixtures/concat.txt'], dest: 'tmp/'}
    ]
  }
}
 
// development 
grunt.registerTask('dev', ['config:dev', 'concat']);
 
// production 
grunt.registerTask('prod', ['config:prod', 'concat']);

Prevent stdout in production environment

Gruntfile:

config: {
  dev: {
    options: {
      variables: {
        'environment': 'development'
      }
    }
  },
  prod: {
    silent: true,
    options: {
      variables: {
        'environment': 'production'
      }
    }
  }
}
