grunt-copy-deps
Copy package.json dependencies from node_modules to a destination of your choosing

Getting Started

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-copy-deps --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:
grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-copy-deps');

copydeps task

Run this task with the grunt copydeps command.

minified

Type: Boolean
Default: true

ignore

Type: Array
Default: []
An array containing the name of the dependencies (as listed in your package file) that should be ignored.

exclude

Type: Object
Default: { js: [], css: [] }
An object identifying the .js and/or .css files that should not be copied.

include

Type: Object
Default: { js: {}, css: {} }
An object identifying the .js and/or .css files that should also be copied along with other dependency files.

js

Type: Boolean
Default: true

Examples

Add a section named copydeps to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().
Copying only .min.js dependencies:
grunt.initConfig({
  copydeps: {            
    target: {            
      pkg: 'package.json',
      dest: 'dest/js/dependencies/'
    }
  }
});

Copying only .js dependencies:
grunt.initConfig({
  copydeps: {            
    target: {            
      options: {   
        minified: false,
        unminified: true
      },
      pkg: 'package.json',
      dest: 'dest/js/dependencies/'
    }
  }
});

Copying both .min.js and .js dependencies:
grunt.initConfig({
  copydeps: {            
    target: {            
      options: {   
        unminified: true,
      },
      pkg: 'package.json',
      dest: 'dest/js/dependencies/'
    }
  }
});

Copying both .js and .css dependencies:
grunt.initConfig({
  copydeps: {            
    target: {            
      options: {  
        minified: true,
        unminified: true,
        css: true,
      },
      pkg: 'package.json',
      /**
       * Use an Object with keys `css` and `js`
       * if you wish to place dependencies
       * in different locations based on the
       * type of file.
       */
      dest: {
        css: 'dest/css/dependencies/',
        js: 'dest/js/dependencies/'
      }
    }
  }
});

Copying only .css dependencies:
grunt.initConfig({
  copydeps: {            
    target: {            
      options: {  
        minified: true
        unminified: true,
        css: true,
        js: false
      },
      pkg: 'package.json',
      dest: 'dest/css/dependencies/'
    }
  }
});

Copying with some dependencies ignored:
grunt.initConfig({
  copydeps: {            
    target: {            
      options: {   
        ignore: [ 'jquery' ]
      },
      pkg: 'package.json',
      dest: 'dest/js/dependencies/'
    }
  }
});

Copying with excluded files:
grunt.initConfig({
  copydeps: {            
    target: {            
      options: {   
        /**
         * All file paths are relative to
         * the `node_modules/` directory.
         */
        exclude: {
          js: ['jquery/src/**/*.js']
      },
      pkg: 'package.json',
      dest: 'dest/js/dependencies/'
    }
  }
});

Copying with included files:
grunt.initConfig({
  copydeps: {            
    target: {            
      options: {   
        include: {
          /**
           * Object syntax resembles { <src>: <dest> }, 
           * where <dest> refers to a path relative to 
           * your `dest/` directory. You can use
           * '.' if no subfolder is desired. All <src>
           * file paths are relative to the `node_modules/`
           * directory.
           */
          js: {
            'codemirror/mode/**/*.js': 'codemirror/'
          }
      },
      pkg: 'package.json',
      dest: 'dest/js/dependencies/'
    }
  }
});

The copydeps task will look for dependencies listed in your package file, and these dependencies will be copied into your dest folder.
