Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Watching for automated tasks, part of Responsive CSS Workflow with Sass, Bourbon, and Susy.
- [Voiceover] So NPM provides a lot of modules…that we can use to handle different types of tasks.…And a really useful one is called Watch.…It allows you to automate your workflow a little bit…by having Grunt monitor files and then execute tasks…when something in those files change.…So earlier, we already installed…this grunt-contrib-watch package and you can see that…there are a lot of options that you could add here.…And what you're going to be doing with this…is monitoring a folder full of files…and then doing something to them.…
Earlier, we installed the grunt-contrib-watch plugin…and you can see here that there's quite a lot of options…that you can use.…But what we're going to do here is monitor…a folder full of files, in this case our Sass files,…and then do something with them, in this case, compile them.…So let's go ahead and switch back to our code editor.…And adding this is going to look very similar…to what we did here with our Sass task.…I'm going to put a comma here since we're adding a new task.…
