grunt-bower-depend

Handle Bower dependencies via Grunt. This task allows you to run bower install from Grunt and then copy specific library files wherever they're needed in your application with a single task.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

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-bower-depend --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-bower-depend');

The "bower_depend" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named bower_depend to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

bower_depend: {
  options: {
    // Task-specific options go here.
    copy: true
  },
  your_target: {
    // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
    files: [{
      'expand': true,
      'cwd': 'bower_components/jquery/',
      'src': ['jquery.*js'],
      'dest': 'tmp/lib/'
    }]
  },
}

Options

options.copy

Type: Boolean Default value: false

A boolean value for whether to copy dependencies installed via bower

Usage Examples

Default Options

In this example, the default option simply executes the bower install command.

bower_depend: {
  options: {}
}

Custom Options

In this example, the default bower install command is executed, then since the copy option is true the specified files are copied from the new bower_components into the lib folder.

bower_depend: {
  options: {
    copy: true
  },
  your_target: {
    files: [{
      'expand': true,
      'cwd': 'bower_components/jquery/',
      'src': ['jquery.*js'],
      'dest': 'tmp/lib/'
    }]
  }
}

Contributing

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.
