About Task Runner
There are certain tasks which front-end developers are often asked to do. Tasks like:
- CSS file compression
- JS minification or obfuscation
- HTML/JSON file minification
- Image optimisation
- Compile SASS or LESS files to generate CSS files
- Unit testing
- SVN commit
- Build deployment etc
To do the above tasks we need so many different reliable tools and it is a tedious task to find such types of reliable tools online. And I don’t think any such tool is available which can do all the above tasks in one click.
What if these tasks can be automated and can be done in one key press? To do this, we would need to write few tasks in JS file and run Grunt.
