grunt-ssi

Compiles HTML with SSI into static HTML pages

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.2

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-ssi --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-ssi');

The "ssi" task

Overview

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

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

Options

options.baseDir

Type: String Default value: 'html'

The Directory location where to locate Server Side Includes from.

options.cacheDir

Type: String Default value: '.tmp/.ssiCache'

The Directory Location to store the cached ssi files

options.includesRegex

Type: Regex Default value: /<!--\#include\s+(file|virtual)=["']([^"'<>|\b]+)['"]\s+-->/g

The Regex Object used to find and parse SSI Include Tags

options.cache

Type: String | Boolean Default value: false

Whether or not to check the cache when processing the file. true to use the cached version, false to clear the file cache, and 'all' to clear all cached files

options.ext

Type: String Default value: '.html'

options.encoding

Type: String Default value: 'utf8'

File encoding used to read and write out the files.

Usage Examples

Standard Options

Typical Settings as such read in .html files in the /html directory, and outputs the parsed files to /.tmp/html. This will only output the originating .html files, but still include files specified by #include tags such as .inc or .shtml

grunt.initConfig({
  ssi: {
    options: {},
    files: [{
          expand: true,
          cwd: 'html'
          src: ['**/*.html'],
          dest: '.tmp/html',
        }],
  },
});

Custom Options

Here is an example that clears the entire cache, and outputs files as .shtml

grunt.initConfig({
  ssi: {
    options: {
      cache: 'all',
      ext: '.shtml',
      baseDir: 'path/to/views',
    },
    files: [{
          expand: true,
          cwd: 'html',
          src: ['**/*.html'],
          dest: '.tmp/html',
        }],
  },
});

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.
