    gulp-track-filenames

    Capture file names before and after transform steps so as to be able to reinstate pre-transform text..

    Install

    Install with npm.

    npm install --save-dev gulp-track-filenames
    

    Usage

    The following is an overly simplistic example. Typically you would use the replace method in an error reporter or similar.

      var gulp = require('gulp');
      var tracking = require('gulp-track-filenames')();
      
      gulp.task('copy', function() {
        var session = tracking.create()
        return gulp.src('src/js/**/*.js')
          .pipe(session.before())
          .pipe(gulp.dest('build/js'))
          .pipe(session.after());
          .on('data', function(file) {
            console.log({
              after:  file.path,
              before: tracking.replace(file.path)
            });
          });
      });
    

    It is important to use a different session in each stream as otherwise the order can be confused and before will not match after. The replace method may be called on the session but is typically called on the top level as shown.

    Reference

    ()

    Create an instance.

    @returns {{create: function, replace: function}}

    .create()

    Create an session that is separated from others.

    This is important to ensure that order is preserved when associating before with after.

    @returns {{before: function, after: function, replace: function}}

    .before()

    Consider file names from the input stream as those before transformation.

    Outputs a stream of the same files.

    @returns {stream.Through} A through stream that performs the operation of a gulp stream.

    .after()

    Consider file names from the input stream as those after transformation.

    Order must be preserved so as to correctly match the corresponding before files.

    Outputs a stream of the same files.

    @returns {stream.Through} A through stream that performs the operation of a gulp stream.

    .define(before, after)

    Define an explicit filename transformation.

    @param {string} before The filename before transformation

    @param {string} after The filename after transformation

    @returns The current session on which the method was called

    .replace(text)

    Replace occurrences of after file names with the corresponding before file names for only the current session.

    @param {string} text The input text to replace.

    @returns {string} The result of the replacement.

    .replace(text)

    Replace occurrences of after file names with the corresponding before file names across all session.

    @param {string} text The input text to replace.

    @returns {string} The result of the replacement.
