Example Config

basic Gruntfile.js

module.exports = function(grunt) {

To override default tasks simply redefine them after calling require('load-common-grunt-tasks')(grunt);, e.g.

module.exports = function(grunt) {
    grunt.util._.extend(, {
        watch: {
            js: {
                files: ['lib/**/*.js'],
                tasks: ['build']
    grunt.registerTask('build', 'custom build task', function() {
        grunt.log.write('Logging some stuff...').ok();
    grunt.registerTask('default', [ 'build', 'jshint']);
