grunt-nwup

Automates the process needed to prepare an update for use with nwup, an NW.js application updater. Creates a zip file that can be applied via nwup to update the application, creates a file [latest.json] with the latest version and the URL to the latest update, and stores the size of the NW.js runtime [needed by nwup] in the application's manifest.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.5

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-nwup --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-nwup');

The "nwup" task

Overview

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

grunt.initConfig({
  nwup: {
    options: {
      location: 'http://www.example.com:port/updates/', // URL to the updates location online.
      nw: 'path/to/nw.exe', // Path of NW.js runtime executable used to build the app.
      updateDir: 'updates/', // Output directory updates will be saved to.
    },
   src: ['./build/**/*'] // Your node-webkit app
  }
});
