Grunt power: developing and releasing your web app has never been so easy


Grunt is a very (very) powerful tool to automate your JavaScript webapp development and release tasks. During a step by step live demo, I will present how to use this tool and why this is a must have in every front-end developers toolbox.

During live demos, we will see how to use Grunt to :

  • start a local server to run your application
  • watch for code or style modifications (live reload)
  • compile SASS/LESS files to regular CSS
  • concatenate and minify JavaScript files
  • check for JavaScript errors against our pre-defined standard (thanks to JSHint)
  • add copyright headers to files
  • run unit tests and end-to-end tests
  • deploy the app to your integration servers
