node package manager



I present to you the best Grunt task ever! It beeps!

install it!

npm install grunt-beep --save-dev

load it!


use it!

Originally I made this so I can have a beep when my watch task is done:

  watch: {
    files: ['*'],
    tasks: ['jshint', 'nodeunit', 'beep'],

You can beep anywhere:

grunt.registerTask('default', ['jshint', 'nodeunit', 'beep']);

But I want more beeps!

You got it!

grunt beep:7

Seven beeps is boring can you beep me a tune?


// shave and a haircut, two bits :D'beep:twobits');

Any other tunes?

Umm how about that "charge" one?

grunt beep:charge

Or "jaws"

grunt beep:jaws

Any more?

Uhh no... write your own:

grunt beep:**-*-**-*--**-*-**-*

Okay... how about only when Grunt has an error or warning?

Good idea!

  watch: {
    files: ['*'],
    // make sure you don't have spawn: false or else whenever jshint has an error, 
    // beep:error will always be executed. Check for reference. 
    // only beep if jshint had an error (works with --force too!) 
    tasks: ['jshint', 'beep:error'],

or beep 3 times if jshint has a warning but only 2 if nodeunit has an error:

grunt jshint beep:warn:3 nodeunit beep:error:2
