#gulp-include

Makes inclusion of files a breeze.
Enables functionality similar to that of snockets / sprockets or other file insertion compilation tools.

Made for gulp 3

  • Concatenate files with full control
  • Respects indentation whitespace
  • Uses globs for simple path control
  • Works recursively (files can include files that can include files, and so on)

Warning: if you are updating from 1.x.x to 2.x.x, please read this readme to get up to date on the behavior of gulp-include

npm install gulp-include

Example gulpfile.js:

var gulp          = require("gulp"),
    include       = require("gulp-include");
 
gulp.task("scripts", function() {
  console.log("-- gulp is running task 'scripts'");
 
  gulp.src("src/js/main.js")
    .pipe(include())
      .on('error', console.log)
    .pipe(gulp.dest("dist/js"));
});
 
gulp.task("default", ["scripts"]);
 
  • extensions (optional)
    • Takes a String or an Array of extensions, eg: "js" or ["js", "coffee"]
    • If set, all directives that does not match the extension(s) will be ignored

gulp-include uses directives similar to sprockets or snockets. A directive is a comment in your files that gulp-include recognizes as a command.

Example directives:

//=require vendor/jquery.js 
//=require vendor/**/*.js 
//=include relative/path/to/file.js 
/*=include relative/path/to/file.css */
#=include relative/path/to/file.coffee 

The contents of the referenced file will replace the file.

A file that is included with require will only be included if it has not been included before. Files included with include will always be included.
For instance, let's say you want to include jquery.js only once, and before any of your other scripts in the same folder.

//=require vendor/jquery.js 
//=require vendor/*.js 

Note: This also works recursively. If for instance, for the example above, if another file in the folder vendor is also including jquery.js with the require-directive it will be ignored.

  • Updated replace to support specials Riim
  • Fixed an issue with indenting
  • Core rewritten to be slimmer and more comprehensive.
  • require and include no longer work the same. require will only include a file that hasn't been included yet. See readme for details.
  • Tests have been rewritten based on the old ones, but also to fit the new functionality
  • Deprecated require_tree and require_directory as they serve little purpose. Use globs (path/to/**/*.xxx) instead.
  • Fixed spacing issues and
  • Merged community fix by trolev
  • Merged feature: Keep leading whitespaces by maxgalbu
  • Fixed issue which caused extensions to be "remembered" if gulp-include ran multiple times in a row, resulting in lost includes
  • Merged major refactoring by scottmas - Many thanks!

    • Rewritten core (regex, replacing and file mashing)
    • Glob support
    • Recursive support
    • Respecting indentation of included files
  • Upping version to 1.0.0 - seems fitting after such a large refactor

  • Updated regex directive to not collide with other requireing plugins, like browserify (cwacek)
  • Changed replace-method to fix issue when requiring a file that contained special characters (juanghurtado)
  • Added require_tree/include_tree (Thanks to juanghurtado!)
  • Method now takes an extensions param for controlling what types of files to include
  • Basic include
