    gulp-dnx

    Gulp plugin for ASP.NET 5. You can use this plugin to integrate ASP.NET 5 dnu build, dnu restore and dnx command execution (for the commands available inside you project.json file). Check out the example inside the repository.

    Installation

    You can install gulp-dnx plugin through npm:

    npm install gulp-dnx
    

    Preferably, you can save this as dev dependency:

    npm install gulp-dnx --save-dev
    

    Usage

    var gulp = require('gulp'),
        dnx = require("gulp-dnx");
    gulp.task('default', function(cb) {
        return gulp.start('dnx-run');
    });
    gulp.task('dnx-run', dnx('kestrel'));

    The default function restores the packages according to your project.json file and runs the web command inside the project.json file. You can pass a few options to this to choose what's actually going to run:

    // the default options
    var options = {
        restore: true,
        build: false,
        run: true,
        cwd: './'
    };
    var dnxCommand = 'web';
    gulp.task('dnx-run', dnx(dnxCommand, options));

    There are also shorthand methods for specific tasks:

    //runs the project.json's command 'kestrel'
    gulp.task('dnx-run', dnx('kestrel'));
    // only restores the packages
    gulp.task('dnu-restore', dnx.restore());
    // only builds the project
    gulp.task('dnu-build', dnx.build());
    // restores the packages and builds the project
    gulp.task('dnu-restore-build', dnx.restoreBuild());

    gulp-dnx also integrates with dnx --watch to run your commands. So, it will restart your server when you change a code file.

    cwd

    You can change the working directory for the specific command to run passing cwd as an option to the main method or as parameter to the shorthand methods.

    //assuming project.json is inside the 'server' directory
    var options = {
        cwd: './server/'
    };
    gulp.task('dnx-run', dnx('web', options));
     
    //using the shorthand methods
    gulp.task('dnx-restore', dnx.restore('./server/'));
    gulp.task('dnu-build', dnx.build('./server/'));
    gulp.task('dnu-restore-build', dnx.restoreBuild('./server/'));

    Install
