grunt-copycat

A combination copy and concatenation task designed for doing a careful merge of directories during deployment.

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

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-copycat --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-copycat');

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

grunt.initConfig({
  copycat: {
    dirs : [dir1, dir2, dir3]
  },
})

An array of extensions to merge instead of overwriting.

In this example, the default options are used to do something with whatever. So if the testing file has the content Testing and the 123 file had the content 1 2 3, the generated result would be Testing, 1 2 3.

grunt.initConfig({
  copycat: {
    options: {},
    files: {
      'dest/default_options': ['src/testing', 'src/123'],
    },
  },
})
