Create workflow for building single webpage products.

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-webapps --save-dev

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


The "webapps" task


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

  webapps: {
    app: {
      options: {
        // Task-specific options go here. 

This will setup various task for you to development of your single page web apps. The workflow requires you to have your main application in app folder and client modifications in clients folder.


To start development on local server on port 9000 just run

grunt server

To build the project for deployment run

grunt build

and then to test if build is correct run local server as in

grunt server:dist

Finally, to deploy run

grunt deploy: --client= --user=

You can skip client/user flags if defaults are good. By default staging environment is used so if you are all lazy(like me) run:

grunt deploy --client=



Type: String Default value: ', '

The root value is used to determine the root directory from which all tasks are executed.


Type: String

The client will determine the default client to use when building the assets.


Type: String Default value: '.'

A string value that is used to do something else with whatever else.

Usage Examples


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.
