This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

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-git-describe --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-git-describe');

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

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