A plugin for downloading tarballed artifacts from Sonatype's Nexus repository.
Tested under Linux and Windows.
The v2.0.0 marks the public release. This plugin has been used privately on a Sonatype Nexus 2.8.x.
This plugin requires Grunt
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-nexus --save-dev
The "nexus" task
In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named
nexus to the data object passed into
The key identifies the artifact (i.e. artifactId), the value defines the requested version.
There are four mandatory options : baseUrl, repository, groupId and path.
Nexus repositories' URL.
The name of the Nexus repository.
The groupId that holds the artifact on Nexus.
The directory where artifacts will be extracted to.
If true, requires SSL certificates be valid. Used in case you use a
baseUrl with HTTPS protocol and this certicate is not strictly secure (self-signed for instance)
In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
