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-deploy --save-dev

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


The "deploy" task


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

  deploy: {
    liveservers: {
        servers: [{
          host: '',
          port: 22,
          username: 'username',
          password: 'password'
        cmds_before_deploy: ["some cmds you may want to exec before deploy"],
        cmds_after_deploy: ["forever restart", "some other cmds you want to exec after deploy"],
        deploy_path: 'your deploy path in server'


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.
