Build tasks

grunt Lints, compiles, minifies and creates release packages for TinyMCE. This will produce the production ready packages.

grunt start Starts a webpack-dev-server that compiles the core, themes, plugins and all demos. Go to localhost:3000 for a list of links to all the demo pages.

grunt dev Runs tsc, webpack and less. This will only produce the bare essentials for a development build and is a lot faster.

grunt test Runs all tests on PhantomJS.

grunt bedrock-manual Runs all tests manually in a browser.

grunt bedrock-auto:<browser> Runs all tests through selenium browsers supported are chrome, firefox, ie, MicrosoftEdge, chrome-headless and phantomjs.

grunt webpack:core Builds the demo js files for the core part of tinymce this is required to get the core demos working.
