A Grunt plugin to take external angular templates and put them inline to the main app file.

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-ng-template --save-dev

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


The "ng_template" task


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

  ng_template: {
    // The directory of your views 
    files : ['app/views'],
    options: {
      // The directory of your app 
      appDir : 'app',
      // The main html file to place your inline templates 
      indexFile : 'index.html'
      // Default set to false 
      concat : true

The above configuration will take your external views from app/views and place them into the bottom of app\index.html. The plugin needs the directory name of your app and the main app file seperately, so it can ensure it writes the correct script ids ( urls ) for Angular.js to use.
