Grunt task for substituting JS libraries with CDN versions

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.2

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-google-cdnify --save-dev

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


The "cdnify" task


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

  cdnify: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here. 
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here. 



Type: Object Default value: require('google-cdn-data')

Object containing the CDN addresses. Refer to google-cdn-data for reference.


Type: String Default value: 'bower_components'

A string value that is used to substituting the address.

Usage Examples

Default Options

In this example, the default options are used. It subtitutes the bower dependencies with the CDN ones, according to the Google CDN.

  cdnify: {
    dist: {
      html: ['<%= dist %>/*.html'],
      bower: 'bower.json'


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.
