Using Grunt for deploying client scripts

Updated about a year ago by Chris83How-tos8 comments – viewed 11,844 times – ( +11 ) – 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.
