Copy Tasks for Output Targets

Each output target can have its own copy config, which is an array of objects that defines any files or folders that should be copied over to the output target's build directory.

src

Each object in the array must include a src property which can be either an absolute path, a relative path from the srcDir, or a glob pattern. By default the item copied to the destination will take the same name as the source.

In the copy config within the www output target example below, the build will copy the entire directory from src/images over to www/images. In this example, since the srcDir property is not set, the default source directory is src.

  outputTargets: [
    {
      type: 'www',
      copy: [
        { src: 'images' }
      ]
    }
  ]

dest

The config can also provide an optional dest property which can be either an absolute path, or a path relative to the build directory of that output target. In the example below, we've customized the build directory to be public instead of the default, which will copy src/files/fonts over to public/static/images.

  outputTargets: [
    {
      type: 'www',
      dir: 'public',
      copy: [
        { src: 'files/fonts', dest: 'static/web-fonts' }
      ]
    }
  ]

warn

By default, if a file or directory is not available it will not warn if the copy task cannot find it. To see the warnings if a copy task source cannot be found, please set warn: true with the copy config object.

  outputTargets: [
    {
      type: 'dist',
      copy: [
        { src: 'fonts', warn: true }
      ]
    }
  ]
