grunt-flex-yui-group v0.0.3

Creates a configuration for a YUI group. First party support for this option can be found in Shifter or Yogi, but this tool provides an alternative method of working with a YUI repository.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

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 grunt-flex-yui-group --save-dev

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


This plugin was designed to work with Grunt 0.4.x. If you're still using grunt v0.3.x it's strongly recommended that you upgrade, but in case you can't please use v0.3.3.

Why is this tool different from Yogi?

Yogi seemed to be made to release modules to the YUI gallery. For modules that will not be released in this fashion, this grunt plugin enables easy YUI configuration.

YUI-group task

Run this task with the grunt yui-group command.

Task targets, files and options may be specified according to the grunt Configuring tasks guide.
