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-init-block --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-init-block');

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

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

Type: String Default value: 'init-block'

Attribute that contains the name of the target file. Example: <div class="block" init-block="blocks.css"> If there is no filename, the text will be copied to the clipboard.

Type: String Default value: '__'

Element class name separator in your HTML. Example: <div class="block__element">

Type: String Default value: '_'

Modifier class name separator in your HTML. Example: <div class="block _modifier">

Type: Boolean Default value: false

Use a long modifier. Example: <div class="block block_modifier">

Type: Boolean Default value: false

Use stylus style for output without braces.

Type: String Default value: '\t'

Output line indent style. Use spaces or tabs.

Describe the task in your Gruntfile.js:

grunt.initConfig({
    initBlock: {
        options: {},
        all: {
            src: ['test/*.html'],
            dest: 'test/'
        }
    }
})

write html:

<div class="post _modifier" init-block="blocks.css">
    <h2 class="post__title"></h2>
    <div class="post__content"></div>
    <div class="post__comments"></div>
</div>

then run grunt initBlock and you will get in blocks.css:

.post {
 
}
    .post__title {
 
    }
    .post__content {
 
    }
    .post__comments {
 
    }
.post._modifier {
 
}

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.
