The Grunt integration is not complete, configuration is done in a separate .json file.

The task comes without tests, haven't that figured out, yet.

The location of the folder structure and the rendered output is configurable, see below, "The robot task".

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-robot');

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

    partials/
    templates/
    pages/

The file robot.json
