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-qunit-minimalist --save-dev

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


The "qunit-minimalist" task


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

    'qunit-minimalist': {
        options: {
            parameters: 'noglobals=true',
            phantomOptions: {
                '--web-security': false
        all: {
            src: [path.join('test', 'UnitTestHost.html')]
