concat(files, options)

files is an array of objects with the following properties:

  • code: The contents of the file, as a string.
  • map: The source map of the file, if any, as an object, a string or anything with a .toJSON() method (such as a SourceMapGenerator). It could be taken straight from a compiler, be resolved using source-map-resolve or created using source-map-dummy.
  • sourcesRelativeTo: A path that are relative to. Defaults to ..


  • delimiter: A string to insert between each file.
  • process(node, file, index): A function to call on each file in files. node is a SourceNode. You could use this to wrap JavaScript files in IIFEs, for example.
  • mapPath: The path to where you intend to write the source map of the produced concatenated file. Defaults to ..

The files in files will be concatenated into a SourceNode which is returned. You may then modify this source node if you wish (node.add(...) for example). When you’re done, call node.toStringWithSourceMap(), which returns an object with a code property containing the concatenated code, and a map property containing the source map.
