Build Status Dependency Status Bitdeli Badge

Creates custom builds of jQuery using the jQuery Builder tool

Getting started

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-jquery-builder --save-dev

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


jquery task

Run this task with the grunt jquery command.

Task targets, files and options may be specified according to the grunt Configuring tasks guide.



Type: String Default: empty string

An string to preceed the version + extension in the file name. For example, if "jquery-" is provided, then a file "jquery-2.0.3.js" will be created for the version 2.0.3. If empty, only "2.0.3.js" will be created.


Type: Boolean Default: true

Whether the minified versions of jQuery should be used.

Usage examples

Defining modules to be excluded for each version:

jquery: {
  dist: {
    versions: {
      // Remove everything we don't need from 2.x versions 
      "2.0.3": [ "ajax", "deprecated", "sizzle" ],
      // We can't remove sizzle from 1.x versions, so let's not specify it 
      "1.8.0": [ "ajax", "deprecated" ],
      // We can even specify it as a string 
      "1.9.0": "ajax, deprecated"

Defining that all versions will use the complete build and will be created in the "lib/jquery" directory:

jquery: {
  dist: {
    output: "lib/jquery",
    versions: [ "2.0.0", "1.10.0", "1.9.0", "1.8.0" ]

Specifying an prefix for the created files and disabling minification:

jquery: {
  dev: {
    options: {
      prefix: "jquery-",
      minify: false
    output: "lib",
    versions: [ "2.0.0", "1.10.0", "1.9.0", "1.8.0" ]
