grunt-jade-client Build Status

A grunt task to compile jade templates into a javascript file (like templates.js) to use on the client

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

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-jade-client --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-jade-client');

The "jadeClient" task

Options

options.requireJs

Type: Boolean Default value: false

If set to true, then the output file will be a requireJs module.

Usage Examples

Default Options

In this example, we build a single js file called hello_world.js, which has the result of two compile jade templates, hello_world.jade, and hola_mundo.jade. We have also set requireJs to be true, which means we will consume this template as a requireJs module. In our JavaScript, we can then get the output of the 'hello' template with JST['hello'].

grunt.initConfig({
  jadeClient: {
    helloWorld: {
      options: {
        requireJs: true
      },
      files: {
        'tmp/hello_world.js': {
          'hello': 'test/fixtures/templates/hello_world.jade',
          'hola': 'test/fixtures/templates/hola_mundo.jade'
        },
      }
    }
  },
});

or in CoffeeScript

  jadeClient:
    development:
      options:
        requireJs: true
      files:
        'tmp/hello_world.js':
          'hello': 'test/fixtures/templates/hello_world.jade'
          'hola': 'test/fixtures/templates/hola_mundo.jade'

In the Browser

Make sure that you have included your compiled template file, as well as runtime.js (copy of the file is on this repo for convenience). Note that there is another module which builds this dependency into the output file, clientjade.

The following code (using jQuery) will render the "hello" template into #target.

$("#target").html(JST["hello"]);

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.
