grunt-compress-deploy

Makes it easy and fast to deploy your project

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-compress-deploy --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-compress-deploy');

The "compress-deploy" task

Usage

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

grunt.initConfig({
  compress-deploy: {
    your_target: {
      src : "/path/to/build",
      dest : "/path/on/server",
      server_sep : "/",
      clean : true,
      createDir : true,
      touch : false,
      exclusions : ['important', 'dont.touch'],
      auth: {
        host : 'yourdomain.com',
        port : 22,
        authKey : 'yourdomain.com'
      }.
    },
  },
})

Options

src

Type: String

Directory, which will be transfered to the server.

dest

Type: String

Path to place on your server where the project should be put.

createDir

Type: Boolean Default value: false

Set to true to create the dest directory when extracting the new version. In case it is set to false and the dest directory does not exist an error will be returned and deploy aborted.

server_sep

Type: String Default value: path.sep

What path separator your server uses?

clean

Type: Boolean Default value: false

Determines whether to clean location on server before putting there the new version.

touch

Type: Boolean Default value: false

Set to true to prevent extraction of file modified time.

exclusions

Type: Array<String> Default value: []

What elements must be preserved from the cleaning. Won't work if in src directory are files of the same names.

proprietary

Type: Boolean Default value: false

If set to true targz is initialized with proprietary headers. Such behaviour causes errors if archive is created on a Mac OS X machine and deployed to a Linux server. See issue #3 for more information.

archive_name

Type: String Default value: tmp.tar.gz

Name of the created and transferred archive.

auth

Usernames, passwords, and private key references are stored as a JSON object in a file named .ftppass. This file should be omitted from source control. It uses the following format:

{
  "key1": {
    "username": "username1",
    "password": "password1"
  },
  "key2": {
    "username": "username2",
    "password": "password2"
  },
  "privateKey": {
    "username": "username"
  },
  "privateKeyEncrypted": {
    "username": "username",
    "passphrase": "passphrase1"
  },
  "privateKeyCustom": {
    "username": "username",
    "passphrase": "passphrase1",
    "keyLocation": "/full/path/to/key"
  }
}

If keyLocation is not specified, grunt-compress-deploy looks for keys at ~/.ssh/id_dsa and /.ssh/id_rsa.

You can supply passwords for encrypted keys with the passphrase attribute.

This way we can save as many username / password combinations as we want and look them up by the authKey value defined in the grunt config file where the rest of the target parameters are defined.

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.
