    grunt-restrict

    Run grunt tasks on subset of their src 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-restrict --save-dev

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

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-restrict');

    The "restrict" task

    Overview

    This task is intended to be used in conjunction with other multiTasks. Lets say you're running coffee task with config similar to

    // Setup your tasks as usual
    grunt.initConfig({
      coffee: {
        expand: true,
        cwd: 'src',
        src: ['**/*.coffee'],
        dest: 'build',
        ext: '.js'
      },
     
      // (grunt-contrib-)watch task is optional
      watch: {
        coffee: {
          files: ['**/*.coffee'],
          tasks: ['restrict:coffee'],
        }
      }
    })
     
    // Use this if you use grunt-contrib-watch
    require('grunt-restrict/tasks/restrict').registerHandlers(grunt);

    And you want to run the coffee task only on src/foo.coffee. Then use

    grunt restrict:coffee --file src/foo.coffee

    Options

    Currently only the --file command line option is supported. If you need to pass multiple files, use a comma, like

    grunt restrict:coffee --file src/foo.coffee,src/bar.coffee

    Disclaimer

    This is in early stages of development, and its only verified to work with coffee grunt task. All multi tasks that support standart grunt file passing should also work, given that all source files are specified in the gruntfile for all target files.

    For targets like requirejs and sass, where source files can include other source files it won't work, but I'm accepting patches.

    Contributing

    In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
