Subversion working copy metadata (svn info) grunt plugin


A Grunt.js plugin that provides easy access to Subversion working copy metadata (svn info).

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

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-svninfo --save-dev

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


That's about it, no configuration necessary.

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named svninfo to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig(). Executing the task svninfo would run svn info in the command line and would make the retrieved data available via grunt.config (e.g. <%= svninfo.rev %>) in your build. The resulting svninfo object has the following structure:

  "rev": "321",
  "url": "",
  "last": {
      "rev": "321",
      "author": "me",
      "date": "2013-02-10 12:35:30 +0200"
  "repository": {
      "root": "",
      "id": "f5d41312-1fa6-4ca6-a93e-e27d7e98fc43"

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.
