Preface

Grunt is a task automation tool that provides the platform for an ever-growing ecosystem of plugins. These plugins provide the actual implementation for the tasks that can be automated. File management, testing, deployment, template rendering, code generation, and much more can be automated using easily configurable tasks.

The Grunt platform's key strength lies in the simple methodology it has defined for task configuration, and the fact that all the plugins it supports tend to adhere to this methodology. This provides developers with a faster way to start using tools that would previously have taken more time to learn, while also presenting the configuration in a standard format that can be easily understood, manipulated, and shared.
