simple Compile underscore templates into JavaScript files.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.5

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install simple-underscore-compiler --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


The "grunt-simple-underscore-compiler" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named grunt-simple-underscore-compiler to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  underscore_compiler: {
            custom_target: {
                files: {
                    'dist/test.js': 'test/test.tpl',
                    'dist/test2.js': 'test/test.html'


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
