jsbeautifier.org for grunt

This plugin recommends using Grunt ~0.4.1. Grunt ~0.3.0 is only suported till version 0.1.4

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-jsbeautifier --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks("grunt-jsbeautifier");

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with:

npm install grunt-jsbeautifier@0.1.4

Then add this line to your project's grunt.js gruntfile:

grunt.loadNpmTasks("grunt-jsbeautifier");
  • files (required): Your source files to beautify
  • options (optional): Overwrite default jsbeautifier options
"jsbeautifier" : {
    files : ["src/**/*.js"],
    options : {
    }
}
  • src (required): Your source files to beautify
  • options (optional): Overwrite default jsbeautifier options
"jsbeautifier" : {
    "default": {
        src : ["src/**/*.js"]
    },
    "git-pre-commit": {
        src : ["src/**/*.js"],
        options : {
            mode:"VERIFY_ONLY"
        }
    }
}

You can run jsbeautifier on a single file by passing runtime command line argument. Its possible to combine this command with existing jsbeautifier task, so config from specified task can be used for beautifying mentioned file.

If you have multi task configured like this,

"jsbeautifier" : {
    "default": {
        src : ["path/to/some/files/*.js"],
        options:{
            js: {
                indentSize: 5
            }
        }
    }
}

and want to beautify a file which is lets say under

/tmp/some/non/configured/file.js

then run command like

grunt jsbeautifier:default:file:/tmp/some/non/configured/file.js

If you have single task configured like this,

"jsbeautifier" : {
    src : ["path/to/some/files/*.js"],
    options:{
        js: {
            indentSize: 5
        }
    }
}

and want to beautify a file which is lets say under

/tmp/some/non/configured/file.js

then run command like

grunt jsbeautifier::file:/tmp/some/non/configured/file.js

    options: {
        config: "path/to/config/file",

}

If you need to beautify files other than js, json, css & html, it can be done by passing fileTypes.

For example, beautifying ".js.erb" files along with ".js", beautifying ".less" files along with ".css", beautifying ".html.erb" files along with ".html".

jsbeautifier: {
    files: ["foo/css/*.css", "bar/css/*.less", "foo/js/*.js", "bar/js/*.js.erb", "foo/html/*.html", "bar/html/*.html.erb"],
    options: {
        js: {
            fileTypes: [".js.erb"]
        },
        css: {
            fileTypes: [".less"]
        },
        html: {
            fileTypes: [".html.erb"]
        }
    }
