grunt-ext-config

WARNING: this plugin is in alpha stage.

Load external configuration

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-ext-config --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-ext-config');

or (better), use matchdep plugin and add this line before grunt.initConfig:

require('matchdep').filterDev('grunt-*').forEach(grunt.loadNpmTasks);

The "configure" task

Overview

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

grunt.initConfig({
  configure: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here.
    },
    bar: {
      src: ['.env'] // load configuration from ini file if no extension provided
    },
    foo: {
      src: ['.env.ini'] // load configuration from ini file
    },
    baz: {
    	src: ['.env.json'] // load configuration from json file
    },
    foobar: {
    	src: ['.env.yaml'] // load configuration from yaml file
    }
  },
})

Options

None.

Usage Examples

Target different environments

grunt.initConfig({
  configure: {
    options: {},
    dev: {
      src: ['.env.dev.json']
    },
    prod: {
    	src: ['.env.prod.json']
    }
  },
})

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.
