Tuild 1.0.3

A easy and advanced build/minifier for JS, CSS and HTML.


Type in terminal, with root privileges:

npm install -g tuild #if this fail, run with sudo

Just that!

Make require('tuild') globally

NPM dont make require() global, so, if you need tuild working globally (installing tuild in all projects is sucks) you need add it in your NODE_PATH:

cd ~ # Go to home folder
npm install tuild # yes, without -g flag
echo export NODE_PATH = $NODEPATH:$HOME/node_modules >> .bashrc

Restart the terminal. Now, if you need another require in global scope, you just need install it in you home folder, like tuild.


Open the terminal in your aplication and type: tuild -h

Now read the help... Some examples:

tuild -v # Print tuild version

tuild css style1.css+style2.css > styles.min.css # Join all css in a minified version

tuild html -dev header.html+content.html+footer.html > page.html # This works like a template, but join all in one file :)

tuild js --watch folder/ scripts.min.js # Watch the folder and automatic update the scripts.min.js, when any changes are made

You can use Tuild via script language (NodeJS)... but I will not document this :P.

Windows users You need run tuild in a js file, because command line dont work (and this is not tuild fault). Eg:


#!/usr/bin/env node

var Tuild = require('tuild').Tuild;
Tuild.command('css file.css file2.css');

The script above works like a command line... to execute, type in terminal "node build.js".


Tuild need JSHint ( and UglifyJS ( to work completely. So you need this in you npm packages, if you download this module directly.
