    grunt-webpack-server

    Fire up a webpack dev server with Grunt.

    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-webpack-server --save-dev

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

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-webpack-server');

    The "webpack_server" task

    Overview

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

    grunt.initConfig({
      webpack_server: {
        server: {
          options: {
            entry: 'index.js',
            output: {
              path: '/',
            },
            port: 8000,
          },
        },
      },
    })

    Options

    It accepts all of the options webpack accepts: https://github.com/webpack/docs/wiki/webpack-options.

    In addition, the following options:

    options.port

    Type: Number
    Default value: 8000

    The port number to run the server one.

    options.keepalive

    Type: Boolean Default value: false

    Whether to keep the task alive forever. You can also pass in an argument at the end, ie: grunt webpack_server:target:keepalive.

    Contributing

    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.
