Heads up!

Major breaking changes in v2.0 of this plugin! See the Release History for details.


const Assemble = require('assemble');

// create your application and add the plugin
const app = new Assemble();

// now you can use `src` and `dest`


Adds the following methods to your assemble instance (works with any [Templates][] application):


Copy files with the given glob patterns to the specified dest.


  • patterns {String|Array}: Glob patterns of files to copy.
  • dest {String|Function}: Desination directory.
  • returns {Stream}: Stream, to continue processing if necessary.


app.task('assets', function(cb) {
  app.copy('assets/**', 'dist/')
    .on('error', cb)
    .on('finish', cb)


Glob patterns or filepaths to source files.


  • glob {String|Array}: Glob patterns or file paths to source files.
  • options {Object}: Options or locals to merge into the context and/or pass to src plugins


app.src('src/*.hbs', {layout: 'default'});


Glob patterns or paths for symlinks.


  • glob {String|Array}




Specify a destination for processed files. Runs .preWrite and .postWrite middleware handlers on all files.


  • dest {String|Function}: File path or rename function.
  • options {Object}: Options and locals to pass to dest plugins



Release History


  • Major breaking changes based on v1.0 of Assemble! Requires Assemble v1.0 or above.


  • emit end on app when stream ends


  • breaking change! plugin is wrapped in a function that now be called when registered. e.g. fs(). This is to be consistent with assemble's plugin guidelines, and allows the plugin to be auto-loaded following the same format as other plugins.
  • rename files array to streamFiles
  • adds onStream middleware handler to src
  • adds preWrite middleware handler to dest
