Gear.js

Build System for Node.js and the Browser

Gear.js is an easy to use, simple to extend, and powerful build system. Chain tasks together to build projects with ease.

Features:

  • Basic building blocks that can be combined to perform complex builds.
  • Tasks are simply defined and keep system internals to a minimum.
  • Asynchronous execution.
  • Extensible task loading via NPM, file, or directory.
  • Advanced flow control for complex task execution.
  • Runs in Node.js and the browser.

Build Status

NPM

Installation

To get the most out of Gear.js, you will want to install gear-lib which contains tasks for linting, minifying, and deploying JS/CSS assets.

$ npm install gear gear-lib

Quick Examples

Chaining Tasks

new Queue()
 .read('foo.js')
 .log('read foo.js')
 .inspect()
 .write('foobarbaz.js')
 .run();

Execute Tasks Using Array Style

new Queue()
 .read(['foo.js', {name: 'bar.js'}, 'baz.js'])
 .log('read foo.js')
 .inspect()
 .write(['newfoo.js', 'newbar.js']) // Not writing 'baz.js'
 .run();

Parallel Task Execution

new Queue()
 .read('foo.js')
 .log('Parallel Tasks')
 .tasks({
    read:     {task: ['read', ['foo.js', 'bar.js', 'baz.js']]},
    combine:  {requires: 'read', task: 'concat'},
    minify:   {requires: 'combine', task: 'jsminify'},
    print:    {requires: 'minify', task: 'inspect'}, // Runs when read, combine, and minify complete
    parallel: {task: ['log', "Hello Gear.js world!"]} // Run parallel to read
 }).run();
