Package description

What is gulp-concat?

The gulp-concat npm package is a plugin for Gulp, a streaming build system. It is used to concatenate multiple files into a single file, which is useful for tasks like combining multiple JavaScript or CSS files into one to reduce the number of HTTP requests and improve web performance.

What are gulp-concat's main functionalities?

Concatenate JavaScript files

This feature allows you to concatenate multiple JavaScript files into a single file named 'all.js'. The source files are located in the 'src/js/' directory, and the concatenated file is saved in the 'dist/js/' directory.

const gulp = require('gulp');
const concat = require('gulp-concat');

gulp.task('scripts', function() {
  return gulp.src('src/js/*.js')
    .pipe(concat('all.js'))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('dist/js'));
});

Concatenate CSS files

This feature allows you to concatenate multiple CSS files into a single file named 'all.css'. The source files are located in the 'src/css/' directory, and the concatenated file is saved in the 'dist/css/' directory.

const gulp = require('gulp');
const concat = require('gulp-concat');

gulp.task('styles', function() {
  return gulp.src('src/css/*.css')
    .pipe(concat('all.css'))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('dist/css'));
});

Concatenate with custom separator

This feature allows you to concatenate files with a custom separator. In this example, a semicolon (';') is used as the separator between concatenated JavaScript files.

const gulp = require('gulp');
const concat = require('gulp-concat');

gulp.task('scripts', function() {
  return gulp.src('src/js/*.js')
    .pipe(concat({ path: 'all.js', newLine: ';' }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('dist/js'));
});

Installation

Install package with NPM and add it to your development dependencies:

npm install --save-dev gulp-concat

Information

Packagegulp-concat
DescriptionConcatenates files
Node Version>= 0.10

Usage

var concat = require('gulp-concat');

gulp.task('scripts', function() {
  return gulp.src('./lib/*.js')
    .pipe(concat('all.js'))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./dist/'));
});

This will concat files by your operating systems newLine. It will take the base directory from the first file that passes through it.

Files will be concatenated in the order that they are specified in the gulp.src function. For example, to concat ./lib/file3.js, ./lib/file1.js and ./lib/file2.js in that order, the following code will create a task to do that:

var concat = require('gulp-concat');

gulp.task('scripts', function() {
  return gulp.src(['./lib/file3.js', './lib/file1.js', './lib/file2.js'])
    .pipe(concat('all.js'))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./dist/'));
});

To change the newLine simply pass an object as the second argument to concat with newLine being whatever (\r\n if you want to support any OS to look at it)

For instance:

.pipe(concat('main.js', {newLine: ';'}))

To specify cwd, path and other vinyl properties, gulp-concat accepts Object as first argument:

var concat = require('gulp-concat');

gulp.task('scripts', function() {
  return gulp.src(['./lib/file3.js', './lib/file1.js', './lib/file2.js'])
    .pipe(concat({ path: 'new.js', stat: { mode: 0666 }}))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('./dist'));
});

This will concat files into ./dist/new.js.

Source maps

Source maps can be generated by using gulp-sourcemaps:

var gulp = require('gulp');
var concat = require('gulp-concat');
var sourcemaps = require('gulp-sourcemaps');

gulp.task('javascript', function() {
  return gulp.src('src/**/*.js')
    .pipe(sourcemaps.init())
      .pipe(concat('all.js'))
    .pipe(sourcemaps.write())
    .pipe(gulp.dest('dist'));
});
