Building JavaScript Library with Grunt.js

New release of typical non trivial JavaScript project needs to run unit tests, concatenate all source files into one and minify the result. Some of them also use code generators, coding style validators or other build time tools.

Grunt.js is an open source tool able to perform all above steps. It is pluginable and was written in JavaScript, so anyone working on JavaScript library or project should be able to extend it as he needs.
