register-grunt-tasks

Register custom Grunt tasks with ease

This plugin permit to load grunt tasks from speparate files in separate folder, using a priority inclusion to permit customized configuration and overriding.

Extremely powerful when used with load-grunt-config :)

Installation

$ npm install --save-dev register-grunt-tasks

How to use it

var registerGruntTasks = require('register_grunt_tasks');
registerGruntTasks(grunt, {
  path: 'path/to/tasks/folder'
});

Inside path/to/tasks/folder you can add one file for task. The file name will be the name of the registered task. For example folder/build.js will result in a build task to be registered.

The task file should export a single function with signature function (grunt) {}. Returned value will be discarded.

The exported function will be registered with grunt.registerTask(), and will be binded using .bind(grunt, grunt).

NB: there is no support for multitask right now. I didn't have a use case for declaring multitask this way, please feel free to open an issue if you need this funcitonality.

Options

options.path

Type: string or Array

Folder path to search for tasks files. Can be a string or an array of folders.

registerGruntTasks(grunt, {
  path: 'path/to/tasks/folder'
});
registerGruntTasks(grunt, {
  path: [
    'path/to/tasks/folder/one',
    'path/to/tasks/folder/two',
    'path/to/tasks/folder/three',
  ],
});

Subsequent folders will have precendence, so for example if you define a task build in folder three, will override a task build in folder two.
