DEPRECATED: THIS PROJECT IS NO LONGER MAINTAINED.

We are looking for new maintainers because we don't use Grunt anymore, sorry. Please leave a message if you're interested in maintaining.

grunt-diff-json

Grunt task that compares json files.

This library is to check if two or more json files have same structure. This can be useful when

  1. Check config file written as JSON with an example JSON file.
  2. Check i18n translated key/value pairs.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.5

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-diff-json --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-diff-json');

The "diffJSON" task

IMPORTANT

dest is the template or the original source of the comparison. src is/are the test subject(s) to be compared with the template.

This is due to the nature of grunt - source files can be multiple where destination file are not.

Options

options.report

Select what kind of differences should be reported as an error, warning, etc.

  • Type: Object(key/value(string) pair)

  • Report kinds (possible keys):

    • typeMismatch: 'error',
    • edited: Value edited (but has a same type)
    • obsolete: Obsolete value in destination.
    • missing: Missing value in destionation.
  • Report options (possible values):

    • fatal: log as an error. Stops task even if called with --force.
    • error: log as an error. Stops task if called without --force.
    • warn: log as an error, but continue.
    • notice: log only.
    • verbose: log only in verbose mode.
  • Default value:

report: {
  typeMismatch: 'error',
  edited:       'notice',
  obsolete:     'warn',
  missing:      'error'
}

options.parseFunction

Choose what function to use for parsing the JSON file.

  • Type: String(enum) - possible values: JSON.parse, eval
  • Default value: JSON.parse

JSON.parse is useful when the JSON file is and should be strictly formatted. eval is useful when JSON file is loosely formatted, especially when it has comments, etc. Task fails when JSON file fails to be parsed.

Usage Examples

grunt.initConfig({
  diffJSON: {
    config: {
      dest: 'config-example.json',
      src: ['config-development.json', 'config-production.json']
    },
    
    i18n: {
      options: {
        report: {
          missing: 'warn', 
          edited: 'verbose'
        },
      },
      dest: 'i18n/dev.json',
      src: ['i18n/en-US.json', 'i18n/ko-KR.json']
    }
  }
});
