Change the indentation of files.

grunt-indent

Change the indentation of files.

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

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-indent --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-indent');

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

grunt.initConfig({
  indent: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here. 
    },
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here. 
    }
  }
});

Type: String Default value: tab

The type of indentation to add or remove. The options are tab or space.

Type: Number Default value: 1

The number of options.style characters in an indent. For example, if you use 2 spaces per indent then you would set options.style to space, and this to 2.

Type: Number Default value: 0

The indentation level change. If this is a positive number it will indent all lines the specified number of times. If this is a negative number it will remove the specified number of indents. If this number is zero then it will merely copy the files without modifying the contents.

In this example the indent task will increase the indent of all .js files in the src directory by one and save the modified files in the dist directory.

grunt.initConfig({
  indent: {
    src: ['src/*.js'],
    dest: 'dist/',
    options: {
      style: 'space',
      size: 2,
      change: 1
    }
  }
});

In this example the indent task will decrease the indent of all .css files in the css directory by one and save the modified files in the dist directory.

grunt.initConfig({
  indent: {
    src: ['css/*.css'],
    dest: 'dist/',
    options: {
      style: 'space',
      size: 2,
      change: -1
    }
  }
});
