Grunt task to remove console logging statements

This task removes all console logging statements from your source code.

Install this plugin with: grunt install grunt-remove-logging

Next, add this line to your project's grunt.js file:


Lastly, add the configuration settings (see below) to your grunt.js file.

This task has two required properties, src and dest. src is the path to your source file and dest is the file this task will write to (relative to the grunt.js file). If this file already exists it will be overwritten.

An example configuration looks like this:

  removelogging: {
    dist: {
      src: "js/application.js",
      dest: "js/application-clean.js",
      options: {
        // see below for options. this is optional. 

This plugin can be customized by specifying the following options:

  • replaceWith: A value to replace console.logging statements with. This defaults to an empty string. If you use fancy statements like console && console.log("foo");, you may choose to specify a replaceWith value like 0; so that your scripts don't completely break.
