Over the past month, I have been working on a build tool that integrates the Closure Compiler, Closure Library, and Closure Templates into a single download. It is named plovr, and can be downloaded as a single jar file that can be run with the JRE.
In creating plovr, I tried to address problems that frequently appeared in the discussion groups, such as:
- having access to an open-source version of the Closure Compiler service
- avoiding long lists of command line arguments
Like many open-source projects, the documentation is still under development, though hopefully it is enough to get you started. I am also reluctant to commit to official documentation before getting feedback from more developers, so please download it and try it out! I have found plovr to be particularly effective in facilitating my Closure development, but I would like to hear whether it is meeting your needs before I promote it from alpha to beta software.
