baseDir: not set by default, set all path in html files relative to this directory.
absoluteBaseDir: same as
baseDirbut forces path to be absolute from this point (starting with a /).
cssmin: defaults to
'cssmin', tasks to execute to minify CSS files. Also accepts an array of tasks like
['cssmin1', 'cssmin2']. In this case, it supposes that the first task is able to produce a single file from numerous inputs. If it does not, use 'concat' first like in:
['concat', 'taskonsinglefile', 'cssmin'].
jsmin: same as
cssminbut for js minification process, defaults to
Just add simple comments to your HTML file that will be replaced by the correct include(s) depending on the process :
<!-- usemin2:css:section_name --><!-- usemin2:js:section_name -->
Right now, by default grunt-usemin2 assume it is in
dev mode. It means that
it will publish each files listed in src sections to its corresponding
destination and then replace sections in HTML files by a list of all moved files.
To activate the minification process, you need to be in
release mode. To do so,
you have to pass a
release argument to the task just like that :
Any argument value other than
release is ignored thus making the task behave
as if in
When the minification process is used, each task of the process is executed resulting in a single file per section. This is the single file that will be included in the HTML file where the section is referenced.
