Move and/or rename files.

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-rename --save-dev

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


The "rename" task


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

    rename: {
        moveThis: {
            src: 'test/this',
            dest: 'output/'
        // Any number of targets here... 
        moveThat: {
            src: 'test/that',
            dest: 'output/that'



Type: Boolean

Default value: false

Ignore if the source file doesn't exist.
