This plugin requires Grunt
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-smart_copy --save-dev

smart_copy:main:files:cwd: 'c:/source'src: '**' '!Bin/**' 'config ' '! * .log 'dest: 'd:/dest'writeCode: 666 // Overrite code

'444'. The default permissons for both newly created files and folders is
