gulp-token-replace can be called with a config object with these attributes:
  • prefix (defaults to '{{')
  • suffix (defaults to '}}')
  • tokens (or global) - An object containing all the tokens to be used for replacement. This object can contain
sub-objects with hierarchical tokens.
  • preserveUnknownTokens (defaults to false) - By default unknown tokens will be removed from the source file and
replaced with an empty string. By setting the preserveUnknownTokens option to true, the source file will not be changed when an unknown token is encountered.
  • delimiter (defaults to '.') - By default dot-notation is used to search for values in sub-objects. By setting
the delimiter option to any other value, tokens like {{main.css}} or {{styles/main.css}} can be used.



Type: Object
configuration object.
Note: gulp-token-replace cannot perform regex replacement on streams.
