grunt-middleman

A grunt plugin for running Middleman.

Getting Started

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-middleman --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-middleman');

The "middleman" task

Overview

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

grunt.initConfig({
  middleman: {
    options: {
      useBundle: true
    },
    server: {},
    build: {
      options: {
        command: "build"
      }
    }
  }
})

Type: String Default value: 'server'

This is the command that Middleman will execute. It should be 'server' or 'build'. Certain properties can only be used with 'server' or 'build'

options.useBundle

Type: Boolean Default value: false

If you are using Bundler set this to true to prefix your command with bundle exec.

options.environment

Type: String Default value: 'development'

Set the Ruby environment that your command will run in. Generally you should let Middleman handle this.

options.port

The port the Middleman server will run on. Server only

options.glob

Type: String Default value: false

Builds a subset of the Middleman site. Build only

options.verbose

Type: Boolean Default value: false

options.clean

Type: Boolean Default value: false

Remove orphaned files from build. Build only

options.env

Type: Object Default value: {}

Additional environment variables to set. This is useful for passing options into your config.rb file

options.cwd

Type: String Default value: none

Set this to change the directory where the Middleman config.rb and source are located. Defaults to same directory Gruntfile is in.

Usage Examples

Default Options

In this example the default options will start the Middleman server on port 4567 when you run grunt middleman.

grunt.initConfig({
  middleman: {
    options: {
      command: "server",
      useBundle: false,
      environment: "development",
      port: 4567,
      glob: false,
      verbose: false,
      clean: false,
      env: {}
    }
  }
});

Custom Options

This configuration will use bundler to execute middleman build or middleman server when you run grunt middleman:build or grunt middleman:server.

grunt.initConfig({
  middleman: {
    options: {
      useBundle: true
    },
    server: {},
    build: {
      options: {
        command: "build"
      }
    }
  }
})

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.
