In recent times, modern web browsers have become the application platform of choice. Grunt, along with its wide range of plugins, provides a simple way of managing the large number of build tasks required to maintain a sophisticated web application.

Getting Started with Grunt: The JavaScript Task Runner provides you with all the information you need to become an effective Grunt power-user. You will quickly learn how to install, configure, and run Grunt. You will go on to understand how to use third-party Grunt and then create your own Grunt tasks that cater to your particular needs.

This book first demonstrates various Grunt use cases before running through the steps of installing, configuring, running, and customizing Grunt. You will learn how to install Node.js, the Node.js package manager (npm), and Grunt. Then, you will understand how to set up and configure a personalized Grunt environment. Next, you will look at the various methods of running and customizing Grunt to utilize its flexibility. Finally, to emphasise what has been learnt, you will see a complete example build of a web application.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr gute Einführung in die Arbeit mit Grunt 11. März 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Jeder Frontend-Entwickler, der seinen Workflow verbessern möchte, ist bei Grünt hervorragend aufgehoben. Damit der Einstieg gelingt und Grunt an die eigenen Bedürfnisse angepasst werden kann, ist ein klein wenig Know-how erforderlich. Aber hier setzt dieses Buch an.

1. Stern:
Man findet von der Installation der benötigten Komponenten bis hin zum Aufsetzen eines eigenen Projektes alle erforderlichen Schritte gleicht verständlich beschrieben. Dabei geht der Autor auch auf npm ein.

2. Stern:
Zu fast jedem Punkt hat der Autor Beispiele zur Verfügung gestellt, die man sich von der Website zum Buch herunterladen kann.

3. Stern:
Das Gruntfile ist der Dreh- und Angelpunkt einer Grunt-Installation. Der Autor beschreibt detailliert, wie man einzelne Tasks konfiguriert. Obwohl ich Grunt schon eine Weile genutzt habe, habe ich noch viele nützliche Punkte aufnehmen können.

4. Stern:
Ein ganzes Kapitel ist dem Aufsetzen eines Beispielprojektes gewidmet. So kann man sich Schritt für Schritt eine eigene Projektumgebung aufbauen und bekommt nebenbei nützliche Tipps zur Strukturierung.

5. Stern:
Der Autor benennt viele nützliche Grunt-Plugins, die in fast jedem Frontend-Projekt Sinn machen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen very useful 5. März 2014
I did use Grunt for many projects before, but while reading this book it finally clicked in my brain. This is definitely a good buy for anything who just started with Grunt, but also for people who want to know what else they could do with that amazing "JavaScript Task Runner". The part about installing Node and Grunt should be moved to the very beginning imho, but that's alright. The book may look small with only 132 pages, but i don't miss any feature i may ever need. From installing Grunt, choosing/using the right plugins (htmlmin, cssmin, uglifyjs - to name the most important ones), creating advanced custom tasks to testing and continuous integration, you will not regret buying this book. It also makes sense to read it very carefully and not skip any part of it, there are many Links to useful resources spread all over the book. References to Douglas Crockford are a clear sign that the author knows what he is talking about :)
Btw, I recommend taking a closer look at "Gulp" too. In case you don't know it, that's another JS Task Runner with almost the same power as Grunt. There are way more plugins available for Grunt right now, but some people just prefer Gulp because it's easier to learn.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent crash course on the Node ecosystem and modern web development 31. März 2014
Von Hemanta Sapkota - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The book maybe about Grunt, but its biggest value proposition, IMHO, is the excellent walkthrough on the Node.js ecosystem and modern web development.

The author has very cleverly leveraged Grunt as a medium to introduce more advanced tools like Coffeescript, Jade, Stylus, all of which when used properly results in a huge productivity boost. See Chapter 4 Grunt in Action.

The only thing that I felt missing was a chapter on Javascript itself. A brief intro on Javascript and its idiosyncrasies could have served as a nice appendix. Although, the book does contain a good reference list on Javascript.

Who will benefit from the book ? Not including the usual front-end developers and framework creators:

1. Experienced Java developers like myself who've made the move to the dynamic world of Javascript (front-end/backend)

2. Web developers proficient in JQuery/PHP but have failed to get onboard the Node train

All in all, there's no doubt that the book will serve as a handy reference for Javascript developers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Getting Started and More 12. Mai 2014
Von Kent C. Dodds - Veröffentlicht auf
Grunt is built on top of NodeJS. If you don't know much about either of those two things I just said, never fear, because this is a terrific intro to both of those. If you do know about those things, never fear, because this goes into depth with Grunt and touches on the pertinent pieces of NodeJS that you'll need to know to get Grunt up and running. This is a terrific book for anyone wanting to speed up their workflow. Definitely would recommend this to someone who wanted to learn about a great frontend build system.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I'm stunned that for such a potentially boring topic could make for an amazing book. 29. Juli 2014
Von astericky - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is among the best introductions to Grunt: The Javascript Task Runner and Nodejs platform I have seen to date. I was so pleased with this book that I recommended it to the other developers on my team immediately upon finishing this book.

The author immediately starts us out with creating a simple Grunt task. He explains the benefits of using a task runner at all in the development process. We learn why Grunt is an excellent choice for task runner in real world use cases such as code minification, code linting and code deployments.

Next we are guided through a more thorough set up of Grunt and the NodeJS platform. We learn about basic configuration and directory structure. The author does not stop there though. He walks us through installing grunt packages and plug-ins as well as building our own custom Grunt tastsk.

By the end of this book the author had me convinced that Grunt is the tool my team can leaverage at work to get control of our unweildy code base and get some structure and consistency around our deployment process.

Often times I find that beginner books are almost too beginner for the audience they are trying to target. This book really hits the sweetspot in terms of getting beginners set up quickly and easily without alienating more senior developers or going into the gory details of Grunt before developers have any real context or understanding around the problem Grunt attempts to solve.

One way I would improve this book is move the last 15-20 pages on development tools to an appendix of some sort. However, I would not include it as a part of a chapter titled Advanced Grunt.

Full disclosure: I was asked to do this review literally the day after I finished it. However, I've read this book and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Introduction to Grunt 9. April 2014
Von Willie Pritchett - Veröffentlicht auf
While the book's title would lead you to believe that the book is about Grunt, which it is for the most part, you are also treated with the added bonus of receiving a slight introduction into Node.JS as well!

As a full stack developer, I can appreciate tools that assist in making my job easier and Grunt is an exceptional tool for eliminating repetitive tasks and this book covers it beautifully. Some topics that you will gain helpful insight on include:

1. Configuring Grunt to run your own Tasks
2. Using Grunt for Testing purposes
3. Setting up and Configuring Grunt

I would say this book is moreso for a user who has a working knowledge of Javascript or at least a beginner Javascript developer. Otherwise, many of the terms used throughout the book will not make much sense.

An Excellent read and I highly recommend it.
