grunt-jsonmin

A wrapper for getify/JSON.minify as a grunt task

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-jsonmin --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-jsonmin');

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

grunt.initConfig({
  jsonmin: {
    dev: {
      options: {
        stripWhitespace: true || false,
        stripComments: true || false
      },
      files: {
        "path/to/destination/file" : "path/to/source/file",
        "path/to/another/destination" : [ "multiple/source/files", "are/supported", "as/an/array" ]
      }
    }
  }
});

Type: Boolean Default value: true

Option not currently supported - always strips comments

Type: Boolean Default value: true

Option not currently supported - always strips comments

Strips comments (// ... \n) from the specified json file/s

See the Gruntfile for the usage examples from the test cases

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.
