grunt task to remove previously generated files and directories
Latest commit 777d028 Aug 22, 2013 @jeff-harnois jeff-harnois Update

Deprecated in favor of grunt-contrib-clean


Removes previously generated files and directories.

Getting Started

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with: npm install grunt-clean

Then add this line to your project's grunt.js gruntfile:



Configure which files and directories to delete in your initConfig:

  // ... other configs

  clean: {
    folder: "assets/js/",
    folderTwo: ["assetsOne/js/", "assetsTwo/js/"]

  // ... other configs

There's no need to specify assets/js/**/* since the task will automatically recursively delete whatever is in that path.


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.
