gulp-sass-generate-contents Build status

Gulp plugin to generate an imports file with a table of contents

This plugin was written to help with large scale website builds that use a CSS preprocessor and Gulp as a task runner.

It's purpose is to create a master SASS file to hold the css @imports of all the specified SASS files. It also generates a list of contents of all SASS files with a description (*manual).

The contents are generated from the first line of each individual SASS file.

* The plugin requires a comment at the top of each SASS file formatted starting with // (double slash). The task will ignore files if they don't follow this format.

Install

npm install gulp-sass-generate-contents

Options

options.forceComments

Type: Boolean Default value: true

Set to false to allow files without comments to be included

options.contentsTable

Type: Boolean Default value: true

Set to false to disable the contents table comment block in the output CSS

options.excludeExtension

Type: Boolean Default value: false

Set to true to exclude file extensions from the generated file

Example of SASS file to be imported

// Navigation Primary ..... CSS styles for the primary navigation

.navigation-primary {
    background: red;
}

Example of Gulp task


// Settings
var gsgc = require('gulp-sass-generate-contents');
var creds = {
    "Author":   "Andrew Brandwood",
    "Website":  "www.Brandwood.com"
}
// *creds are optional*

// Gulp task

gulp.task('gulp-sass-generate-contents', function () {
    gulp.src(['sass/**/*.scss','partials/**/*.scss'])
    .pipe(gsgc('css/main.scss', creds))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('css'));
});

// With options

gulp.task('gulp-sass-generate-contents', function () {
    gulp.src(['sass/**/*.scss','partials/**/*.scss'])
    .pipe(gsgc('css/main.scss', creds, {forceComments: false }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('css'));
});
