Writing Testable Application in AngularJS – Part 5

Throughout the series, we’ve seen how powerful AngularJS is and how quickly you can write unit tests for your application. In this post, we’ll take a look at grunt .

To create a build, simply execute:

$ grunt build

Above command does a lot of things such as run all tests, compile sass/compass files, minification of css and js, etc.

In our case, we’ve to do slight modifications in Gruntfile.js. If you want to include directories/files which were not created by the generator but to be needed in dist then just locate copy option in Gruntfile.js and add it in src array.

    copy: {
      dist: {
        files: [{
          src: [
            // including data/ directory

And at the bottom under grunt.registerTask('build') option, you can comment/remove tasks to be omitted during the build.

  grunt.registerTask('build', [
    // Do not require below tasks
    // 'jshint',
    // 'test',
    // 'coffee',
