grunt-url-image-crawler

Crawl your CSS/SCSS or HTML files for img URL's and store the crawled image URL's in a local JSON file.

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-url-image-crawler --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-url-image-crawler');

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

grunt.initConfig({
    url_crawler: {
      default_options: {
        options: {
        },
        files: {
          'result/CSSImages.JSON': ['test/fixtures/main.css'],
        },
      }
    }
});

In this example test/fixtures/_main.scss and test/fixtures/main.html are being crawled and url() and img images are being extracted and saved to a local JSON file result/CSSImages.JSON and result/HTMLImages.JSON use includeFileSource: true to insert in the array also the path to the file where the url's are crawled from.

    url_crawler: {
      default_options: {
        options: {
          includeFileSource: true
        },
        files: {
          'result/CSSImages.JSON': ['test/fixtures/_main.scss'],
          'result/HTMLImages.JSON': ['test/fixtures/main.html']
        },
      }
    }
