In Detail

Grunt.js is an immensely popular new command-line tool for Javascript developers. It offers a fantastic range of features that allow you to streamline your workflows and save time and energy by automating repetitive tasks. A large and well-supported plugin ecosystem ensures that most things worth doing already have a plugin made for them.

The Grunt.js Cookbook includes over fifty recipes for practical tasks to perform with Grunt, offering solutions to a large array of common problems that developers face on a daily basis. Automate anything from compilation to management and even deployment. If you can't find a plugin that solves your problem just right, contribute to an existing one or build your very own and share it with the community. Consider this an introduction to a world where everyone helps everyone else to get things done faster.

This book has multiple benefits for developers. Begin with easy-to-follow instructions for core Grunt tasks such as LiveReload. You will find out how to use Grunt in conjunction with an array of different tools: compile different HTML templates, deploy to a variety of platforms, and perform a range of tests. Follow the recipes to become proficient with Grunt for file management, CSS and coding purposes. Master Grunt tasks, create your own plugins, and build sample web applications. Become accomplished at using Grunt for its true purpose - saving you time!
