status

Information

Package gulp-bower-files
Description Build gulp.src() of your bower package's main files.
Node Version >= 0.10

Usage

var gulpBowerFiles = require('gulp-bower-files');
 
gulp.task("bower-files", function(){
    gulpBowerFiles().pipe(gulp.dest("./lib"));
});

This will read your bower.json, iterate through your dependencies and build a gulp.src() with all files defined in the main property of the packages bower.json. You can override the behavior if you add an overrides property to your own bower.json. E.g.:

Options

Overrides Options

These options can be set directly in your bower.json file, e.g.:

{
    "name": "your-package-name",
    "dependencies": {
        "BOWER-PACKAGE": "*"
    },
    "overrides": {
        "BOWER-PACKAGE": {
            // Here you can override the main files or ignoring this package, for more info see options
        }
    }
}

main

Type: String or Array or Object

You can specify which files should be selected. You can gulp-bower-files select files based on the process.env.NODE_ENV if you provide an Object with keys as the environment, e.g.:

{
    "overrides": {
        "BOWER-PACKAGE": {
            "main": {
                "development": "file.js",
                "production": "file.min.js",
            }
        }
    }
}

ignore

Type: Boolean Default: false

Set to true if you want to ignore this package.

dependencies

Type: Object

You can override the dependencies of a package. Set to null to ignore the dependencies.

Common Options

These options can be passed to this plugin, e.g: bowerFiles(/* options*/)

debugging

Type: boolean Default: false

Set to true to enable debugging output.

main

Type: String or Array or Object Default: null

You can specify for all packages a default main property which will be used if the package does not provide a main property.

env

Type: String Default: process.env.NODE_ENV

If process.env.NODE_ENV is not set you can use this option.

paths

Type: Object or String

You can specify the paths where the following bower specific files are located: bower_components, .bowerrc and bower.json

For example:

bowerFiles({
    paths: {
        bowerDirectory: 'path/for/bower_components',
        bowerrc: 'path/for/.bowerrc',
        bowerJson: 'path/for/bower.json'
    }
})
.pipe(gulp.dest('client/src/lib'));

If a String is supplied instead, it will become the basepath for default paths.

For example:

bowerFiles({ paths: 'path/for/project' })
.pipe(gulp.dest('client/src/lib'));
 
/*
    {
        bowerDirectory: 'path/for/project/bower_components',
        bowerrc: 'path/for/project/.bowerrc',
        bowerJson: 'path/for/project/bower.json'
    }
*/

checkExistence

Type: boolean Default: false

Set this to true if you want that the plugin checks every file for existence. If enabled and a file does not exists, the plugin will throw an exception.
