grunt-smart-copy

Copy files and folders when the content has really changed based on a md5-hash. In the future this can be extended with other checks. This can come in handy together with the live reload task of grunt-contrib-watch. Somethimes a new file is generated which is identically the same as the previous one and is triggering a live-reload while it isn't needed.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

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-smart-copy --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-smart-copy');

    },
  },
})
