grunt-minify-each

grunt-minify-each

A grunt plugin to provide a minified version of each file in a source repo

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-minify-each --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-minify-each');

The "minify_each" task

Overview

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

grunt.initConfig({
  minify_each: {
     dest: 'build',
        minDest: '',
        sourceFilter: /^src\//,
        type: 'uglifyjs',
        parameters: ['--max-line-len=10000', '--lift-vars', '-m']
    },
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here. 
    },
  },
})

Options

options.dest

Type: String Default value: build

The build directory of where the files should be output to.

options.sourceFilter

Type: String Default value: /^src//

If set then it is a filter that is applied to a source file.

options.minDest

Type: String Default value: ``

If set to a directory location it will create the minified files in that location. This can be useful when using require as you can change baseUrl in require to switch between minified files and none minified files.

options.type

Type: String Default value: uglifyjs

The minify engine to use, see node-minify for the options.

options.dest

Type: Array Default value: ['--max-line-len=10000', '--lift-vars', '-m']

Options to pass to the minification engine

Usage Examples

Default Options

In this example, the default options are used to do something with whatever. So if the testing file has the content Testing and the 123 file had the content 1 2 3, the generated result would be Testing, 1 2 3.

grunt.initConfig({
  minify_each: {
    options: {},
    files: {
      'dest/default_options': ['src/testing', 'src/123'],
    },
  },
})

Custom Options

In this example, custom options are used to do something else with whatever else. So if the testing file has the content Testing and the 123 file had the content 1 2 3, the generated result in this case would be Testing: 1 2 3 !!!

grunt.initConfig({
  minify_each: {
    options: {
      dest: 'build',
        type: 'uglifyjs',
        parameters: ['--max-line-len=10000', '--lift-vars', '-m']
    },
    files: {
      'dest/default_options': ['src/testing', 'src/123'],
    },
  },
})

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.
