    grunt-aspnet-server

    Grunt task for running an ASP.NET Server

    Getting Started

    This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.5

    If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

    npm install grunt-aspnet-server --save-dev

    Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-aspnet-server');

    The "aspnet" task

    Setup

    In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named aspnet to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

    grunt.initConfig({
      aspnet: {
        options: {
          // Task-specific options go here.
        },
        your_target: {
          // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
        },
      },
    });

    Default Options

    grunt.initConfig({
      aspnet: {
        options: {
          //Launch ASP.NET server from subfolder
          directory: '',
     
          //Override default URL
          url: 'http://localhost:3000',
     
          //Override default type. DNX have 3 different types : console - kestrel - web
          type: 'web',
     
          //Specify configuration specified in project.json : debug - release...
          configuration: '',
     
          //Command specified in project.json : web - run...
          command: '',
     
          // Will turn into: `k [command] ARG1 ARG2 ... ARGN`
          args: [ ],
     
          // Consider the server to be "running" after an explicit delay (in milliseconds)
          delay: 0
        }
      },
    });

    Usage

    By default, the server is considered "running" once any output is logged to the console, upon which control is passed back to grunt.

    Typically, this is normally:

    Started

    Starting the server

    If you have a server defined named dev, you can start the server by running aspnet:dev. The server only runs as long as grunt is running. Once grunt's tasks have completed, the web server stops.

    Stopping the server

    Similarly, if you start the dev server with aspnet:dev, you can stop the server with aspnet:dev:stop.

    Contributing

    In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
