About the Book
As front-end developers, we find in our day-to-day tasks and flows that we could (and should!) automate to save time and avoid bugs and errors: compiling Sass stylesheets, running tests, pre-compiling Handlebar templates, linting our code, etc.
This is a guide that serves both as an introduction to Grunt, as well as a collection of recipes on how to automatise some of the most common tasks, among them:
- Compile Sass stylesheets
- Run unit tests in the console and in a browser
- Launch a local web server
- Listen for file changes and re-compile assets (like Sass stylesheets)
- Generate a tarball with a release of your app
