  responsive_images_converter: {
    default_options: {
      files: {
        'tmp/default_options': [ 'test/fixtures/only-one-image.md' ],
      },
    }
  },
})

      //device pixel ratio( 1 is default ) 
      dprs: [ 2 ],
      suffix: '@'
    },{
      name: 'tablet',
      media: '(max-width:800px)',
      //device pixel ratio( 1 is default ) 
      dprs: [ 2 ],
      suffix: '@'
    },{

      media: '(min-width:800px)',
      //device pixel ratio( 1 is default ) 
      dprs: [ 2 ],
      suffix: '@'
    }]
  };

Usage Examples

Default Options

test/fixtures/only-one-image.md

![Webp compare tool](/img/raw/webp-tool.png)

Gruntfile.js

grunt.initConfig({
  responsive_images_converter: {
    default_options: {
      files: {
        'tmp/default_options': [ 'test/fixtures/only-one-image.md' ],
      },
    }
  },
})

After running the task above, it will creat a new file named default_options under tmp directory.

tmp/default_options

<picture>
    <source srcset="/img/raw/webp-tool-phone.png, /img/raw/webp-tool-phone@2x.png 2x" media="(max-width:500px)">
    <source srcset="/img/raw/webp-tool-tablet.png, /img/raw/webp-tool-tablet@2x.png 2x" media="(max-width:800px)">
    <source srcset="/img/raw/webp-tool-desktop.png, /img/raw/webp-tool-desktop@2x.png 2x" media="(min-width:800px)">
    <img alt="Webp compare tool">
</picture>

Asset Option

When your responsive images locat in the different directory from the orignal img tag. For the example above, the directory of you img tag in markdown file is /img/raw/, if your responsive images' directory is img/resp/, then you should use the asset field.

grunt.initConfig({
  responsive_images_converter: {
    options: {
      asset: '/img/resp/'
    },
    files: {
      'tmp/change_srcset_dir': [ 'test/fixtures/only-one-image.md' ],
    },
  },
})

And the result will be:

<picture>
    <source srcset="/img/resp/webp-tool-phone.png, /img/resp/webp-tool-phone@2x.png 2x" media="(max-width:500px)">
    <source srcset="/img/resp/webp-tool-tablet.png, /img/resp/webp-tool-tablet@2x.png 2x" media="(max-width:800px)">
    <source srcset="/img/resp/webp-tool-desktop.png, /img/resp/webp-tool-desktop@2x.png 2x" media="(min-width:800px)">
    <img alt="Webp compare tool">
</picture>

Src Option

When you don't want to create a new file and just need to replace the original markdown file, then use the src field.

grunt.initConfig({
  responsive_images_converter: {
    src: [ 'tmp/dest_equal_src.md' ],
  },
})

The result after running task will be written to tmp/dest_equal_src.md.

Notice

At present, browsers don't support the responsive image tech well, you may need use the picturefill to polyfill.
