Don’t like having to use repetitive parts of a development workflow? If so, this Learning Path is for you.
Packt’s Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and step-wise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.
Why go with Grunt? Grunt, the JavaScript Task Runner written in Node.js, is the industry-standard tool to perform important repetitive tasks such as minification, compilation, and unit testing. Its wealth of free plugins available online empowers you to reduce the development time and minimize human errors—just what a developer wants.
This Learning Path will start by helping you build your workflow from installing and using Grunt to a basic degree. You’ll move on to advanced configurations, creating your own plugins, and building high-quality applications and sites.
The goal of this Learning Path is to make you a Grunt expert—from complex configuration to plugin authoring.
