Brunch 1.4.4 (October 1, 2012)

  • All errors are now deferred to the compilation end. Also, if you have added one error on previous compilation and one error on current, brunch will show both of them until they will be fixed.
  • Fixed integration.
  • Fixed test passing.
  • Fixed config.notifications on ubuntu.

Brunch 1.4.3 (September 2, 2012)

  • Added support of binary files to generators.
  • Improved error logging.
  • Updated built-in webserver to express.js 3.0.

Brunch 1.4.2 (August 18, 2012)

  • Fixed incorrect scaffolding on windows.
  • .git directories are now discarded when using brunch new with git URL.

Brunch 1.4.1 (August 8, 2012)

  • brunch new now allowed to take current working directory (.) or any existing directory as first argument.
  • Assets are now affected by conventions.ignored too.
  • Fixed linting bug.

Brunch 1.4.0 (August 4, 2012)

  • Added new phenomenally simplified scaffolder:
    1. Create generators/ directory in your brunch application (directory name is customizable by config.paths.generators).
    2. Create generator directory there with generator.json and files that will be generated.
  • Added conventions:
    • Conventions are configurable via config.conventions[name]. Convention can be a RegExp or Function.
    • assets convention: all files in directories that named as assets (default value) will be copied to public path directly.
    • vendor All files in directories that named as vendor (default value) won't be wrapped in modules.
    • tests convention: all files that end with _test.<extension> (default value) are considered as test files and will be loaded automatically with brunch test.
    • ignored convention: all files that start with _ (default value) are considered as partial files and won't be compiled. Useful for Stylus / Sass languages. This replaces functionality of config.paths.ignored.
  • Added AMD support by allowing more flexibility with file wrapping:
    • config.modules can be an object of:
      • config.modules.wrapper - string, boolean or function, defines how to wrap files in app directory in modules.
      • config.modules.definition - string, boolean or function, defines what to add on top of every file.
  • Added linting support. Linting is a static analysis of code. Example tools for this are JSHint, CSSLint etc. The lint API is plugin.lint(data, path, callback). One file can use more than one linter.
  • Added config option that disables growl / libnotify notifications. Usage: config.notifications = false.
  • Added support for Mac OS X Mountain Lion notification center. You'll need to place to /Applications/ to get it work.
  • Removed support for:
    • config.files[lang].defaultExtension. Brunch will automatically detect extension from your generator file name.
    • config.framework, config.generators. It's not needed because all generators are local to your application and because brunch now has generators/ directory.
    • Array type of paths.vendor / paths.assets. They're replaced by conventions.
  • If any error happened in brunch build, it will exit with error code 1 instead of 0.
  • Fixed commonjs require_definition in <IE9.

Brunch 1.3.4 (July 7, 2012)

  • Fixed bug with too fast compilations.

Brunch 1.3.3 (June 29, 2012)

  • Added node.js 0.8 and 0.9 support.
  • jsdom, required for brunch test can now be installed once for all apps via npm install -g jsdom. You'll need to have its parent dir in NODE_MODULES env variable.
  • Fixed compiled in timer and brunch generate bugs.

Brunch 1.3.2 (June 27, 2012)

  • Fixed brunch test on new projects.

Brunch 1.3.1 (June 22, 2012)

  • Config can now be in any language you use in app (e.g. livescript).
  • Added --reporter (-r) option to brunch test which allows to choose Mocha reporter.
  • Made require definition much easier for debugging.

Brunch 1.3.0 (June 19, 2012)

  • Brunch with Chaplin is now the default application skeleton, that will be created on brunch new <app>. Old one is still available with brunch new <app> -s github://brunch/simple-coffee-skeleton. Chaplin is an awesome set of classes on top of Backbone.js that makes making big webapps very simple.
  • Added testing support (thanks to Andreas Gerstmayr):
    • Mocha is used as test engine. It's a feature-rich, flexible and fun.
    • brunch test (or brunch t) is used to run all tests in CLI env.
    • test directory is now watched. Add 'javascripts/tests.js': /^test/ to config.javascripts.joinTo in to compile them.
  • Improved command line API:
    • Added github://user/repo skeleton address schema support to brunch new.
    • Debug mode now has logger namespaces. Usage: BRUNCH_DEBUG=<ns> brunch <command> where <ns> is: watcher, writer, *.
  • Improved file watcher:
    • Vim backup files are now ignored by watcher.
    • Fixed watching of non-compiled files in app.
  • Improved config API:
    • Added support for config.server.base, which determines base URL from which to serve the app. The default value is empty string.
    • config.paths.ignored now doesn't need to check versus if file is or package.json, it does it automatically in brunch code.
    • Fixed config.paths.ignored on windows.
    • config.paths.vendor is now an array, but it will be soon deprecated.
  • Changed onCompile plugin API. Now it receives an array of fs_utils.GeneratedFile. This makes it very rich and allows to build smarter reloaders. For example, the ones that reload browser tabs only on stylesheet change.
  • Semicolon is now added after every compiled vendor library because of some libs that break with brunch. Hello, Zepto!
  • Styles in vendor directory are now sorted correctly, before app files.
  • Only generated files that depend on changed in current compilation files are written now. Before, brunch was writing all files each time.

Brunch 1.2.2 (May 24, 2012)

  • Brunch now outputs compilation time.
  • Assets are copied one-by-one on change, instead of copying the whole assets directory. This improves watcher performance by about 25%+.
  • Disabled caching in built-in webserver.
  • Improved brunch generate:
    • Added --plural option to brunch generate. Plural version of generator name is used in controllers and collections. By default, brunch does pluralizing instead of you.
    • Added collection generator to brunch generate. It is not included in brunch g scaffold, because it's not needed most of the time.
    • Added collectionView generator to brunch generate for Chaplin users. It doesn't generate corresponding template.
  • If package.json or were removed during the watching, brunch process will exit.
  • Maximum time between changes of two files that will be considered as a one compilation changed from 100ms to 65ms.

Brunch 1.2.1 (May 12, 2012)

  • Fixed persistence of process with brunch watch (without server).
  • Fixed watching of files on windows.

Brunch 1.2.0 (May 12, 2012)

  • Greatly improved brunch generate:
    • User can now define his own generators in config.generators.
    • Default generators are now:
      • controllerTest, modelTest, viewTest, template, style
      • controller (generates controllerTest too)
      • model (generates modelTest too)
      • view (generates template, style & viewTest too)
      • scaffold (generates controller, model, view and their generators)
  • Improved config API:
    • Added paths.ignored param that redefines paths ignored by brunch.
    • paths.assets can now be an array of paths.
  • Improved plugin API:
    • Added support for onCompile method. It allows to create great & simple live browser reloaders.
  • Added pushState support to the built-in webserver.
  • Files that end with two underscores (e.g. a.js__) are now ignored by watcher and compiler because they're created by some IDEs.
  • Files in vendor directory are now sorted correctly, before app files.

Brunch 1.1.2 (April 20, 2012)

    • Added, paths.root, paths.assets, paths.test, paths.vendor.
    • Scripts that are not in the config[lang].order are now compiled in alphabetical order instead of random.
    • Made optional presence of almost all config params.

    • Fixed an issue when loader cached same modules more than once.
