grunt-filenames

Validates filenames using given RegExp

grunt-filenames v0.4.0

Validates filenames using given RegExp

npm install grunt-filenames --save-dev

Checks if all JavaScript filenames are lower case.

// Gruntfile.js 
grunt.initConfig({
  filenames: {
    options: {
      valid: /^[a-z]+\.js$/,
      except: // 'name' | ['name1', 'name2'] | function (name) { return true if name is exception } 
    },
    src: ['tasks/*.js']
  }
});
grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-filenames');
grunt.registerTask('default', ['filenames']);

note grunt-filenames checks base name only (not folder names)

Custom error message

Add the following property to the options to get custom error messages

error: 'your file {filename} does not come close to passing {valid}'
// {filename} - will be failed filename
// {valid} - will be options.valid regexp

option valid

Instead of RegExp, you can specify

  • valid: "dashes" - allow lower-case-with-dashes filenames
  • valid: "camelCase" - allow camelCased filenames

A function, for example

validfunction (filename) {
  return filename.length > 10;
}

option except

You can exclude specific names if they fail the check. Single string name, array of strings or a function is allowed. A function should return truthy value if given name that fails should be an exception.
