Grunt Building

Our dev and release builds are handled by Grunt.


First you need to install the grunt-cli (npm -g install grunt-cli)

After cloning you can simply do an NPM install.

npm install

This will install the tools needed locally and build the library and npm package.


  • grunt build Runs a yogi build.
  • grunt npm Runs the npm build.
  • grunt test Runs a yogi test on the entire lib.
  • grunt test-cli Runs only the CLI tests.
  • grunt travis Runs a custom build/test just for Travis CI.
  • grunt release Runs a release build (more below)
  • grunt, grunt help, grunt yui Will display build help.

Release Build

You can do a full YUI release build with grunt release.

This command uses two CLI options (--release-version and --release-build).

  • --release-version The version to stamp the files with
  • --release-build The build number of this release.

If --release-build is not provided, the last Git sha (short version) will be used in it's place.

Release builds are stored under: ./releases/[VERSION]/

The release build consists of the following artifacts:

  • dist release zip Containing source, tests, HISTORY, api docs and landing pages.
  • cdn release zip Contains the build dir stamped for a CDN release (CSS files processed for relative paths)
  • ssl cdn release zip Same as above only tweaked for SSL access.
  • npm package The npm package designed for a simple npm publish

Other Builds

We no longer require a Makefile for any of our modules, they have all been converted to grunt builds.

  • cssnormalize Under src/cssnormalize, grunt will import the source.
  • handlebars Under src/handlebars, grunt will import the source.
  • test Under src/test, grunt will import the source.
