The gulp-strip-code plugin is used to remove sections of code. Usefull to remove code from production builds that are only needed in development and test environments, or to remove custom internationalized information. This plugin uses start and end comments to identify the code sections to strip out. For example:

Inspired by grunt-strip-code

/*! i18n EN start */
.onlyEnStyle {
    color: red;
/*! i18n EN end */

.otherStyle {
    color: red;
/* test-code */
/* end-test-code */


Getting Started

First, install gulp-strip-code as a development dependency:

npm install gulp-strip-code

The "strip_code" task


Add to your gulpfile.js:

var stripCode = require('gulp-strip-code');

gulp.task('templates', function(){
      start_comment: "start-test-block",
      end_comment: "end-test-block"



Type: String Default value: test-code

The text inside the opening comment used to identify code to strip.


Type: String Default value: end-test-code

The text inside the closing comment used to identify code to strip.


Type: Boolean Default value: false

Sets the behaviour to keep the identifying comments or not. Setting a truthy value for keep_comments will enable it.


Type: RegExp Default value: (a generated RegExp matching the start and end comments)

If the default start and end comment matching doesn't work for you needs, you can supply your own RegExp to match against. If the pattern option is specified, the start_comment and end_comment options are ignored.


npm test


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.
