Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.5

If you know what you're doing and want to see some examples take a look at this project's Gruntfile.js.

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-triton --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-triton');

The "triton" task

Overview

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

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

Options

options.async

Type: Boolean Default value: false

When set to false, the task waits for the newly created instance to be in the 'running' state before running the next task. When set to true, the task is completed immediately after creating the machine.

options.client

Type: Object Default value: {profileName: 'env'}

Passed directly to node-triton's createClient function. Default uses the TRITON_* or SDC_* environment variables.

options.image

Type: Object or Function Default value: {name: 'minimal-64-lts'}

If an Object is supplied with a name key, all images in Triton are searched for an image with the supplied name.

If a Function is supplied, the task calls the function and passes in an Array of image Objects as the first argument. The user can then perform their own filtering or searching on the images and return the desired image ID.

If machine.package is set this option is ignored.

See listImages for more info.

options.machine

Type: Object Default value: {}

Passed directly to createMachine.

options.package

Type: Object or Function Default value: {memory: 128}

If an Object is supplied with a memory key, all packages in Triton are searched for a package with the requested amount of memory and the last package found is returned.

If a Function is supplied, the task calls the function and passes in an Array of package Objects as the first argument. The user can then perform their own filtering or searching on the packages and return the desired package ID.

If machine.package is set this option is ignored.

See listPackages for more info.

options.test

Type: Boolean Default value: false

When set to true the machine is not created but info that would be passed to createMachine is shown on the console.

options.waitForHTTP

Type: Boolean Default value: false

When set to true the plugin will make HEAD requests to the machine's IP address until it receives a successful response.
