grunt-force-task

Enable the force option for a specific task.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt.

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-force-task --save-dev

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

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-force-task');

The force task

The force task doesn't require any special configuration. To use it, just add force as the first argument when running other tasks.

Short example: force:jshint

Example

The default task run the jshint task and then the watch task which can run jshint again. We use force to execute the first jshint so we doesn't break the flow and the watch task can executed for continuous development.

grunt.initConfig({
    jshint: { /* ... */ },
    watch: {
        all: {
            files: '{,**/}*.js',
            tasks: ['jshint']
        }
    }
});

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-contrib-jshint');
grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-contrib-watch');
grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-force-task');

grunt.registerTask('default', [
    'force:jshint',
    'watch'
]);
