Generates precache commands for Batman templates to pre-populate

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-batman-templates --save-dev

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


The "batman_templates" task


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

  batman_templates: {
    options: {
      templateFolder: 'app/html' // optional, defaults to 'app/html'
    files: {
      src: 'app/html/**/*.html'
      dest: 'batman-view-precache.js'

Sample Output

The following shows what the resulting batman-view-precache.js file looks like, based on the unit tests:'posts/index', '<h1>Welcome to the Posts Page</h1>\n<ul class=\"posts\">\n  <li class=\"post\" data-foreach-post=\"posts\">\n    <span class=\"title\" data-bind=\"post.title\"></span>\n    <span class=\"created-at\" data-bind=\"post.created_at\"></span>\n  </li>\n</ul>\n');'posts/show', '<h1>Post: <span data-bind=\"post.title\"></span></h1>\n<span class=\"created-at\" data-bind=\"post.created_at\"></span>\n<div data-bind=\"post.content\"></div>\n');'posts/subfolder/subtemplate', '<h1>This is a special template</h1>\n<div>Verifies that subfolder path lookups in the task work</div>\n');'products/index', '<h1>Welcome to the Posts Page</h1>\n<ul class=\"products\">\n  <li class=\"product\" data-foreach-product=\"products\">\n    <span class=\"name\" data-bind=\"\"></span>\n    <span class=\"price\" data-bind=\"product.price\"></span>\n  </li>\n</ul>\n');

You would include this JavaScript file after your Batman application code ie:

<script src="/path/to/batman.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/my-batman-app.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/batman-view-precache.js"></script>


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.
