Grails ‘integrate-with’ command

While reading the Grails docs I came across a useful Grails command i.e. integrate-with. In this short blog I just want to present some of the uses of this command.

By using this command we can create Git’s .gitignore file:

grails integrate-with --git

The above command will create a .gitignore file in the root of our project with the following content:

*.iws
*Db.properties
*Db.script
.settings
stacktrace.log
/*.zip
/plugin.xml
/*.log
/*DB.*
/cobertura.ser
.DS_Store
/target/
/out/
/web-app/plugins
/web-app/WEB-INF/classes
/.link_to_grails_plugins/
/target-eclipse/

Another use of ‘integrate-with’ command is to create an Eclipse specific file structure (to be opened in Eclipse IDE) of our Grails project:

grails integrate-with --eclipse

eclipse‘ option in the above command will produce .project and .classpath files for use with Eclipse.
Similarly, you can create IntelliJ Idea specific project file structure from a Grails project

grails integrate-with --intellij

intellij’ option in the above command will produce .iml, .ipr and .iws files for use with IntelliJ Idea IDE.

Hope this cool ‘integrate-with’ command gives you a head-start in starting your next Grails project.
