Install a grunt init template

Getting Started

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's grunt.js gruntfile with: npm install grunt-install-init

Then add this line to your project's grunt.js gruntfile:



grunt-install-init copies grunt init style files from a directory into the grunt's userDir (~/.grunt for Linux or %USERPROFILE% for Windows).

  'install-init': {
    // 'Plugin name': 'Base directory where plugin is stored' 
    'myinittemplate': 'src'

copies src/myinittemplate.js and src/myinittemplate (a directory) into the grunt userDir's tasks/init folder.

Once they are copied, you can call grunt init:myinittemplate in a new folder and the init script you have set up will run.

More info on init can be found in the grunt documenation.


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.
