Modern web broswers are becoming the platform of choice online. Apps come and go, but websites seem to be the beginning, middle and end. To this end, it has become increasingly complicated to maintain a large number of build tasks all in one place. Thankfully, there are tools to aid this.
Setting up and running Grunt is fairly straight forward, even for beginners (as per my posts), however, it’s always a good idea to make sure you understand what the underlying technology is, and what it can do for you.
This book is a great introduction to Grunt, and also to the Node.js system that underpins it. As well as being a reference, there are also a large number of great walkthrough examples, and real-world scenarios. The concepts are covered in great details, and the book also covers deployment strategies to a number of platforms.
In the 112 pages, it gives a great introduction and overview from beginner to intermediate. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking at taking up Grunt, without hacking straight in to it.
