Duplicate files via Grunt with templating support

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.2

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-duplicate --save-dev

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


The "duplicate" task

Usage Examples

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

  duplicate: {
    options: {
      template: true,
      copies: 100,
      data: {
        custom: 'data'
    files: {
      'copies/': ['src/*.js', 'src/*.css'],

Example file

Generated file: <%= id %>
Total copies: <%= total %>



Type: boolean Default value: true

Process files content and replaces values between <%= %>


Type: number Default value: 1

Number of copies to do per file


Type: object Default value: null

Pass custom data to replace in the file


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.
