Template engine consolidation for gulp


Template engine consolidation for gulp using consolidate.js.

First, install gulp-consolidate as a development dependency:

npm install --save-dev gulp-consolidate

Then, add it to your gulpfile.js:

var consolidate = require("gulp-consolidate");
gulp.src("./src/*.html", { read : false})
    .pipe(consolidate("swig", {
        msg: "Hello Gulp!"

Type: String

The consolidate.js supported template engine used to render each file.


Note: The template engine must also be installed via npm.

npm install --save-dev swig

Type: Object|Function

The data to use to render the templates.

consolidate('swig', {
    msg: "Hello World"

If this argument is a function, it will be called with the file as the only argument to get the template data.

consolidate('swig', function (file) {
    return {
        BASE_URL : path.relative(file.path, pathToBase)

Type: Object

Additional options.

Type: Boolean Default: false

consolidate('swig', data, { useContents : true });

Most times, you will want to render templates that include other files. In order to do so, the filenames will be passed to consolidate rather than the file contents.

If you would rather pass the file contents to consolidate, set the useContents option to true.
