Summary

In this chapter, we have learnt Grunt is an easy to use JavaScript build tool, which has the potential to greatly improve the development cycle of the typical front-end developer. We have covered many common build problems in this chapter and, by combining these examples, we see we can quite easily make use of various premade Grunt plugins to vastly simplify previously complex build processes.

In the next chapter, we will review the steps required to install Grunt and its only dependency—Node.js, and also the various methods of configuring Grunt.
