npm and Grunt.js put powerful automation tools at developer's fingertips.

This talk will provide a very brief introduction on using grunt.js to optimize your WordPress development workflow, including:

  • Compiling of LESS, SASS, or CSS files
  • Linting of JS files
  • Combination, minification, uglification, and compression of assets.
  • Browser live reload

This talk assumes some familiarity with the command line and CSS preprocessors such as LESS or SASS.

This talk will focus on using Grunt.js for WordPress installations however the information could easily be applied to other platforms.
