Thanks to your article and this one by Philip Brown , I finally got grunt up and running with my custom settings. Couldn’t be happier.

A tip I picked up from Brown’s article was to use matchdep to automatically load in your Grunt plugins. So instead of loading each plugin manually as so:

@grunt.loadNpmTasks(‘grunt-contrib-uglify’);@

you would have matchdep do it for you…

to set up matchdep run this command in the terminal:

@npm install matchdep —save-dev@

then replace your grunt.loadNpmTasks with this line instead:

@require(‘matchdep’).filterDev(‘grunt-*’).forEach(grunt.loadNpmTasks);@

and you’re good to go! :)
