    grunt-postman-variables

    Replace Postman variables in files from .postman_globals and/or .postman_environment file

    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-postman-variables --save-dev

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

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-postman-variables');

    The "postman_variables" task

    Overview

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

    grunt.initConfig({
      postman_variables: {
        options: {
          // Task-specific options go here.
        },
        your_target: {
          // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
        }
      }
    });

    Options

    options.globalsPath

    Type: String Default value: 'globals.postman_globals'

    Path to Postman globals variables (e.g. 'data/globals.postman_globals').

    options.environmentPath

    Type: String Default value: 'environment.postman_environment'

    Path to Postman environment variables (e.g. 'data/prod.postman_environment').

    options.replaceWithPattern

    Type: String Default value: false

    (optional) String pattern which should be used to replace the rest of variables not covered by global and environment variables. __variable__ can be used in the pattern to refer to the variable's name.

    Usage Examples

    grunt.initConfig({
      postman_variables: {
        options: {
          environmentPath: 'environments/dev.postman_environment',
          replaceWithPattern: '_.getVar("__variable__")'
        },
        files: {
          'dest/some_file.js': ['src/some_file.js'],
          'dest/another_file.js': ['src/another_file.js'],
          'dest/some_directory': ['src/location/*.js']
        }
      }
    });
