Using Grunt for deploying client scripts

Updated about a year ago by Chris83How-tos8 comments – viewed 10,510 times – ( +10 ) – version 1.1
For a long time I have struggled to find a suitable tool for doing server tasks such as compiling LESS files, concatenating and minifying of JavaScript files and copying the minified JavaScript files.

These newsletters have always been hard to create as regular web HTML is not properly read by web email interfaces and email clients. I thought that the simplest solution would be to use a web page that would serve as a web version of the newsletter and turn it somehow into newsletter HTML.
