grunt-dustjs

Grunt task to compile Dust.js templates.

Getting Started

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with: npm install grunt-dustjs.

Then add this line to your project's grunt.js gruntfile:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-dustjs');

Documentation

Inside your grunt.js file, add a section named dustjs with one or more targets. Each section contains a files object that specifies the Dust.js template files to compile.

files object

This defines what files this task will process. It can contain any valid Grunt files format.

When using a src/dest format, the key (destination) should be an unique filepath (supports grunt.template) and the value (source) should be a filepath or an array of filepaths (supports minimatch). All source files will be combined into the destination output.

When using the dynamic format (example #3), each source file will be processed into its own destination file.

Options

fullname default: false

Used to customize the template variable names. If fullname is true, the full path will be used as the template name. If fullname is a function, the function receives a single argument, which is the full path, and returns the name of the template.

transformQuote default: false

Used to reverse quotes usage by dustjs: double quotes replaced by single quotes and vice versa. Output is more clean after this transformation.

prepend default: null

Add a custom string to the start of the output file. This is useful for creating custom AMD wrappers, eg: define(['dust'], function(dust){\n

append default: null

Add a custom string to the end of the output file.

whitespace default: false

Preserve whitespace.

amd default: false

Compile as AMD modules.

cjs default: false

Compile as CommonJS modules.

silent default: false

Suppress success compile messages.

Example #1

module.exports = function (grunt) {
  //...
  grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-dustjs');
  //...

  var config = {
    //...
    dustjs: {},
    //...
  };

  config.dustjs: {
    compile: {
      files: {
        'js/templates.js': ['src/templates/**/*.html']
      }
    }
  },
});

Example #2 (custom template names)

var path = require('path');

module.exports = function (grunt) {
  //...
  grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-dustjs');
  //...

  var config = {
    //...
    dustjs: {},
    //...
  };

  config.dustjs: {
    compile: {
      files: {
        'js/templates.js': ['src/templates/**/*.html']
      },
      options: {
        fullname: function(filepath) {
          var key = path.relative('src/templates', path.dirname(filepath)).split(path.sep) // folder names
            .concat([path.basename(filepath, path.extname(filepath))]) // template name
            .join('.');

          if (key.charAt(0) == '.')
            return key.substr(1, key.length - 1);
          return key;
        }
      }
    }
  },
});

Example #3 (one JS file per template)

module.exports = function (grunt) {
  //...
  grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-dustjs');
  //...

  var config = {
    //...
    dustjs: {},
    //...
  };

  config.dustjs: {
    compile: {
      files: [
        {
          expand: true,
          cwd: 'dust/',
          src: '**/*.html',
          dest: '',
          ext: '.js'
        }
      ]
    }
  }
});

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.
