“Grunt is one of those fancy newfangled things that all the cool kids seem to be using but at first glance feels strange and intimidating. I hear you. This article is for you.”

Yes!! Chris, this article is for me. I feel more alleviated knowing I’m not the only one that sees those garish tools with fancy names. Thank you!

That gave me a good perspective of the use of Grunt. I’ll give it a try on my next project, but I think the command line is too bureaucratic, you have to memorize several commands, install several things – and it’s not clear to me what is the utility of those directories, like @node_modules@ (absent on the github project).

As an idea for the next articles, I miss a better explanation of a workflow using Yeoman – one that goes beyond the simple running of commands, one that installs then interacts with the files in a real project, where to start, what commands should be run (the essential ones, not the theatrical ones used to impress your boss)
