grunt-sync-pkg NPM version Build Status

Minimalist Grunt plugin to sync only basic properties between package.json and bower.json

This plugin syncs the following properties between package.json and bower.json:

  • name
  • version
  • main
  • dependencies
  • devDependencies

Also, if a bower.json file does not exist, the plugin creates on first. There is no option to turn this off, since there is no reason to use the plugin if you aren't syncing with anything :-).

Getting Started

If you haven't used grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide.

From the same directory as your project's Gruntfile and package.json, install this plugin with the following command:

npm install grunt-sync-pkg --save-dev

Once that's done, add this line to your project's Gruntfile:


If the plugin has been installed correctly, you should now be able to run grunt sync at the command line to run the sync task.


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.
