Guard::Steering Build Status Dependency Status Code Climate

About

Lets you set up a Guard that will run Steering whenever a Handlebars.js template is added / updated.

The reason this Gem was born is developing a HTML5 based desktop application which relies on static compilation. Still wanting to get the benefit of having fast Handlebars templating, precompilation is now done development time instead of loading the templates and letting the full runtime JS do the work.

Usage

Guardfile

For some comprehensive examples and explanation see Guard-Steering-examples or in case you're familiar with Handlebars and Guard just read on.

Point the Guard watcher to your Handlebars template folder, set up the output folder in the options part and you're all set! Note: at the moment Guard::Steering won't rebuild your folder structure.

guard 'steering', {
    :output_folder => "build/handlebars",
    :run_at_start => true,
    :register_partials => true,
    :quiet => false
  } do
  watch(%r{^source/handlebars/.*\.handlebars$})
end

Gemfile

source "https://rubygems.org"
gem "guard"
gem "steering"
gem "guard-steering"

Set up Guard and let it run

$ bundle install
$ bundle exec guard init steering
$ bundle exec guard

  • Cleaned up documentation
