Configurable delivery tool for grunt build files and backend servers

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

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-chauffeur --save-dev

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



In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named chauffeur to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig(). The task will quit when Grunt exits. You'll need to use a watch task to make the process long running.

    chauffeur: {
        dev: {
            port: 8000,
            staticFiles: ['public'],
            testable: { route: '/test.html' },
            routes: 'config/routes.js',
            proxy: [
                { path: '/api', host: 'localhost', port: 3000 }

All the target configurations are passed on to node-chauffeur. See node-chauffeur for information about the configuration options.
