grunty

Run any grunt plugin as NPM script without Gruntfile.js

NPM

Build status dependencies devdependencies semantic-release

Zero task configuration (defaults)

Often I want to run a simple task as NPM script, but hate creating verbose Gruntfile, installing grunt dependencies, etc. Enter grunty - just specify the plugin's module, name and any options in the NPM script command. No global grunt installation is necessary.

npm install --save-dev grunty

then use in the package.json

"scripts": {
  "concat": "grunty grunt-contrib-concat concat --src=a.js,b.js --dest=dist/out.js",
  "nice": "grunty grunt-nice-package nice-package"
}

Using configuration file

You can even pass configuration using a JSON file or JS file (just export an object)

For example, put grunt plugin configurations into config.json

{
    "concat": {
        "default": {
            "src": ["a.js", "b.js"],
            "dest": "dist/out.js"
        }
    }
}

The add config.json to the NPM script line

"scripts": {
  "concat": "grunty grunt-contrib-concat concat config.json",
}

You can see an example JSON config file in test/concat.json which can be triggered using npm run concat-config command defined in the package scripts.

Similarly you can export the JavaScript object from a JS file for configuration, see test/concat.js

Details

Separate multiple values like filenames using , as in --src=path/to/foo,path/to/bar

The plugin runs with the your local package.json attached to the config, thus you can use pkg.name, pkg.description and other properties. If the plugin requires more elaborate options, write Gruntfile.js.

You do need to install the actual plugin and save reference in the dev dependencies.

Read Put mock data into Node require cache to learn how this project fakes gruntfile.js without actually even saving mock one to disk.

If you need to run an example and see diagnostic messages, you can using npm scripts and enabling the debug messages using debug. For example to debug parsing config json

$ DEBUG=cli npm run concat-config
> grunty grunt-contrib-concat concat test/concat.json
