grunt build should warn/abort if specified files are not found
The missing file in bug 1063451 would have been noticed sooner, if |grunt build| gave some indication that it was missing - preferably an abort, but even some log output at all would be better than the current situation. Looking at the grunt docs, there doesn't seem to be a global way to set this, which is pretty crappy. Instead we have to specify |nonull: true| on each file/resource - which will then cause the job to fail: https://github.com/gruntjs/grunt-contrib-concat#invalid-or-missing-files-warning http://gruntjs.com/configuring-tasks#files https://github.com/gruntjs/grunt-contrib-concat/issues/17 https://github.com/gruntjs/grunt-contrib-concat/issues/15 https://github.com/gruntjs/grunt-contrib-uglify/issues/3 Now there is a workaround for making this global, discussed here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21142515/grunt-files-set-nonull-to-true-by-default However: a) It seems a bit hacky, given our Gruntfile.js doesn't specify that many files, so doing per file/resource isn't too excessive. b) The comments there imply it only works on files-array format whereas we use a mixture, so we'll have to convert them all & are at risk of this breaking in the future if people don't realise. So I think it's best to just set per-file/resource for now. Side note: WTF upstream?! Even if you're worried about annoying people by making this abort, they could have at least made it warn in the output by default... *facepalm*
There currently is no reliable way to set this globally & by default missing files are ignored :-( See comment 0 for more info.
