How to use grunt in Magento 2?

In this article, you will be learning about how we can use grunt in Magento

Before starting the installation, Please rename the existing files package.json.sample and Gruntfile.js.sample in your root folder as package.json and Gruntfile.js respectively.

Follow the below steps to use grunt in Magento 2:

  • Step 1: Install Node.js
  • Step 2: Install Grunt CLI
  • Step 3: Install Node.js dependencies
  • Step 4: Add a theme to Grunt configuration
  • Step 5: Run Grunt commands

Step 1: Install Node.js

First, we need to install a stable version of Node.js.

Step 2: Install Grunt CLI

Now install the Grunt CLI tool globally by the following command:

npm install -g grunt-cli

Step 3: Install Node.js dependencies

nstall the node.js project dependencies, including Grunt, for your Magento instance. To do this, run the following commands in the command prompt:

cd <your_Magento_instance_directory>
npm install
npm update

Step 4: Add a theme to Grunt configuration

Add your theme to Grunt configuration. To do this, in the dev/tools/grunt/configs/themes.js file, add your theme in module.exports as shown below:

module.exports = {
       ...
   <theme>: {
   area: 'frontend',
       name: '<Vendor>/<theme>',
       locale: '<language>',
       files: [
       '<path_to_file1>', //path to root source file
       '<path_to_file2>'
   ],
       dsl: 'less'
       ...
},

Where the following notations are used:

<theme>: Your theme code, conventionally should correspond to the theme directory name.
<language>: specified in the ‘code_subtag’ format, for example, en_US. Only one locale can be specified here. To debug the theme with another locale, create one more theme declaration, having specified another value for language.
<path_to_file >: the path to the root source file, relative to the directory app/design/frontend/<Vendor>/<theme/>/web. You need to specify all root source files of the theme. If your theme inherits from a certain theme and does not contain its root source files, specify the root source files of the parent theme.

Step 5: Run Grunt commands

Now the installation process is completed, the next step is to run the Grunt commands:

grunt clean: This command removes static files related to your theme in both pub/static and var directories.

grunt exec: This one republishes source files symlinks to
pub/static/frontend/<Vendor>/<theme>/<locale>

grunt less: This command compiles all the css file using the symlinks in this location
pub/static/frontend/<Vendor>/<theme>/<locale>

grunt watch: This command is used to start the grunt tool to track the changes done in the main files like .less and re-compiles into CSS files.

Every time you change any of this in the source file, grunt watch will show notification in the terminal about the specific change and recompiles the changes simultaneously.

Cheers!

How to create a child theme in Magento 2?

Sometimes, client requirement requires changes in the parent theme. But if the parent theme file is changed directly, we will not be able to upgrade it in the future. This is because if we we will lose all the changes. By creating a child theme, we will be able to retain our customization and also maintain both the original theme and the customized theme in separate folders.

below steps define how to create a Magento 2 child theme.

Note: In this example, we will be using ‘Dckap’ as the vendor name and ‘luma’ as the parent theme name.

Vendor name: Pipl

Parent Theme name: luma

1. Create child theme folder named as {parent-theme-name}_child in the below-mentioned folder path.

Magento root folder/app/design/frontend/{theme-vendor-name}/{parent-theme-name}_child

Ex:  Magento root folder/app/design/frontend/Pipl/luma_child

Child theme name can be anything. If the name refers parent theme name, it will be easily understandable and developer friendly.

2. Create file theme.xml inside the child theme to specify the parent theme inherited by the child theme.

<theme xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Config/etc/theme.xsd">
    <title>{Child Theme Name}</title>
    <parent>{parent-theme-vendor-name}/{parent-theme-name}</parent>
    <media>
        <preview_image>media/preview.png</preview_image>
    </media>
</theme>

Example :

<theme xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Config/etc/theme.xsd">
   <title>Luma Child</title>
   <parent>Magento/luma</parent>
   <media>
       <preview_image>media/preview.png</preview_image>
   </media>
</theme>


Tags mentioned in the theme.xml file

Title – Title for the child theme. It will be displayed in the admin panel where we select the theme for the front end view of the site.

parent – We have to specify the parent theme name for the child. Based on the parent theme, child theme will inherit the property, layout, template files, and styles. Here we have to specify both vendor name of the parent theme and theme name.

{parent-theme-vendor-name} – It should exactly match the vendor folder name. Vendor name should be capitalized. Ex: Magento

{parent-theme-name} – It should be same as parent theme name. Ex: luma.

preview_image – This image will refer your child theme layout and design. It will be displayed in admin panel where you can view your child theme details. And also we should place the preview.png image inside the child theme media folder.

3. Create a registration.php file for registering your child theme.

<?php

\Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::register(
\Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::THEME,
  'frontend/{theme-vendor-name}/{parent-theme-name}_child',
  __DIR__);
 ?> 

{theme-vendor-name} – It should exactly match the vendor folder name. Vendor name should be capitalized. Ex: Pipl

Example :

<?php

\Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::register(
   \Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::THEME,
   'frontend/Pipl/luma_child',__DIR__);

4. Create composer.json.

{
    "name": "{theme-vendor-name}/theme-frontend-{parent-theme-name}-child",
    "description": "N/A",
    "require": {
        "php": "~5.5.0|~5.6.0|~7.0.0",
        "{parent-theme-vendor-name}/{parent-theme-name}": "100.0.*",
        "magento/framework": "100.0.*"
    },
    "type": "magento2-theme",
    "version": "2.2.1",
    "license": [
        "OSL-3.0",
        "AFL-3.0"
    ],
    "autoload": {
        "files": [
            "registration.php"
        ]
    }
}

Example :

{
    "name": "pipl/theme-frontend-luma-child",
    "description": "N/A",
    "require": {
        "php": "~5.5.0|~5.6.0|~7.0.0",
        "magento/luma": "100.0.*",
        "magento/framework": "100.0.*"
    },
    "type": "magento2-theme",
    "version": "2.2.1",
    "license": [
        "OSL-3.0",
        "AFL-3.0"
    ],
    "autoload": {
        "files": [
            "registration.php"
        ]
    }
}

5. Create web directory inside the child theme with the below empty directories and files.

6. The whole directory structure for the child theme.

7. Provide access/permission for child theme directories and files.

For giving permission for the child theme directory, navigate to the child theme directory in the terminal and run the below command.

sudo chmod -R 777 *

Note: If you are working in a local or development server you can provide 777 access for both files and directories. If live server, then you have to give 755 for directory and 644 for files.

8. The created child theme will be displayed in the admin panel.

Navigate to

Magento Admin Menu->Content->Themes.

Select child theme in admin configuration.

Navigate to

Magento Admin Menu->Content->Design->Configuration->Select Child theme->save configuration. 

Flush the cache.

9. Now take a backup of your pub/static folder for images, CSS, and js. Then delete the static folder and run static content deploy.

10. Navigate to the Magento root folder in your terminal and deploy static content using this command.

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

11. The newly created child theme will also deploy in the pub/static folder.

12. We have created the child theme successfully. Now you can start customizing your child theme.
