import chown from 'gulp-chown';
import gFilter from 'gulp-filter';

const filter = gFilter('src/vendor-*.js');

export default () => (
	gulp.src('src/*.js')
		// Filter a subset of the files
		.pipe(filter)
		// Change ownership of them
		.pipe(chown('sindresorhus'))
		// Bring back the previously filtered out files
		.pipe(filter.restore())
		.pipe(gulp.dest('dist'))
);
