Build Status


grunt-steal has been forked and will be maintained from going forward. This version is the current version on NPM, however upon the next StealJS release, Bitovi's fork will take over(slated early 2014).

I'm currently leaving this version for JMVC users 3.2 and prior, however migrating issues to the new project.

A task to allow for ease of running multiple StealJS build scripts.

Currently, this assumes you have steal as a subdirectory/submodule placed in the root of your UI project and configured via steal/js steal/make.js.

Getting Started

Install this plugin with: npm install grunt-steal

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



Specify a steal section in your gruntfile. This will allow configurations for overriding options in the specified build scripts.


js string

Optional - Specify a path to the steal root. Defaults to gruntfile directory.

build array

Specify all build scripts via string or object. See example below

Sample config

The configuration below specifies the steal root, where the js runner exists, then runs each build script.

steal: {
    js: 'path/to/steal/root',
    build: ['path/to/build.js', 'path/to/app2/build.js']

You can also provide override options for your prebuilt build scripts.

steal: {
    build: [{
        src: 'path/to/build.js',
        to: 'some/new/dir',
        compressor: 'uglify'

Note: The src and other path options are relative to the steal root, not the gruntfile

Note: option overrides are in an alpha release of StealJS

These will override the options specified within the build script.
