grunt-wow

Increase developer morale.

grunt-wow

Increase developer morale. Show a random (cheeky|funny|wise|motivational) message in the terminal.

The list of messages to choose from is configurable and can be either a simple array of strings or a local or remote file path. If you are using a file, each message should be placed on it's own line.

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-wow --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-wow');

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

grunt.initConfig({
  wow: {
    your_target: {
      source: ['you are amazing.', 'damn! you got game.', 'better luck next time.']
    },
  },
});
grunt.initConfig({
  wow: {
    your_target: {
      source: 'http://f.cl.ly/items/2F1X430I0v0V0F1q0D1m/sayings.txt'
    },
  },
});

Type: Array or String Default value: null

Either a simple array of strings or a path to a text file (will be split on line breaks).

Protip: Use a published Google Spreadsheet (CSV) so your entire team can add or remove messages at any time!

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.
