    grunt-rerun Build Status

    Launch, relaunch and stop grunt task.

    Getting Started

    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-rerun --save-dev

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

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-rerun');

    The "rerun" task

    Overview

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

    grunt.initConfig({
      rerun: {
          yourtarget: {
            options: {
              tasks: ['express'],
              keepalive: false,
              port: 12456
            },
          },
        },
    })

    Options

    options.task

    Type: Array Default value: []

    An array of grunt task to be 're-run'. Those should be long-living grunt task (like testacular server, express with keepalive and so on)

    options.keepalive

    Type: Boolean Default value: false

    Wheter or not the rerun task should block or not. The preferred way is to leave keepalive to false and to useit in conjunction with other long-living task like watch

    options.port

    Type: Number Default value: 1247

    The default port used for internal communication. The rerun:target task will launch a server listening on this port, wich will recive further comunication via the rerun:target:task:go task. ### Usage Examples

    In this example, the default options are used to so keepalive will be false and the port used internally will be 1247. So if the testing file has the content Testing and the 123 file had the content 1 2 3, the generated result would be Testing, 1 2 3.

    grunt.initConfig({
      watch: {
          dev: {
            files: ['server/*.js'],
     
            //Note the :go flag used for sending the reload message to the rerun server 
            tasks: ['clean','rerun:dev:express:go']
          },
        },
        express: {
            dev: {
                options: {
                    port: 3000,
                    bases: ['/public'],
                    keepalive: true,
                    server: path.resolve('./server/app.js')
                }
            }
        },
        // Configuration to be run (and then tested). 
        rerun: {
          dev: {
            options: {
              tasks: ['express']
            },
          },
        }
    })
