Grunt commandsΒΆ

These commands are run on the command line, prefixed with grunt. For example, to rebuild the CSS after editing the LESS files, you would run grunt less.

Some commands require you to have external applications installed. Instructions for installing dependencies are included in the developer documentation.

less
Recompiles all LESS files into their corresponding CSS files, including sourcemaps, and then runs cssmin. The list of files that will be compiled is defined in Gruntfile.js in the variable cssLessFiles.
uglify
Minifies Largo’s .js JavaScript files to .min.js files.
cssmin
Takes all .css files in css/ and homepages/assets/css that are not .min.css files and makes minified versions with the file extension .min.css.
shell

Runs commands directly on the command line, instead of running Grunt modules.

These commands require you to have set up Largo according to the complete dev environment or documentation contribution environment instructions, because they require several Python libraries that were installed by following those instructions. Besure to have activated your python virtualenv with workon, as described in those instructions.

shell:apidocs
Recompiles the Largo API Docs from structured comments in Largo’s PHP code using /docs/generate_api_docs.py into reStructuredText files.
shell:sphinx
Converts all available reStructuredText files into HTML documentation, which is saved locally in docs/_build/html/. If you want to preview these docs without pushing them to largo.readthedocs.io, run python -m SimpleHTTPServer as described in the documentation contribution instructions.
shell:msmerge
Runs msgmerge to merge translation files.
watch
Runs less if a .less file in less/ or homepages/assets/less/ is modified. Runs docs if a reStructuredText .rst file changes in docs/.
pot

Scans the Largo code for the WordPress localization functions and generates .po files for working with localization software.

Running this command requires your computer to have xgettext installed. Installation instructions vary based on operating system; your best bet is Google. xgettext is usually installed in the same package as gettext.

po2mo

Converts the .po files to .mo files. For more information about .po and .mo files, see the Wikipedia articles on gettext.

Running this command requires your computer to have xgettext installed. Installation instructions vary based on operating system; your best bet is Google. xgettext is usually installed in the same package as gettext.

docs
Runs shell:sphinx, rebuilding ALL docs.
build
Runs less, cssmin, uglify, apidocs, docs, pot, and shell:msmerge to rebuild the assets, docs, and language files.
