Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.2
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-debug-task --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:
grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-debug-task');

The "debug" task

Use debug task to debug other tasks.
For example to debug the test task run this:

This starts node-inspector and opens it in Google Chrome.

Type: Boolean Default value: true
Set the open option to false to disable opening of the node-inspector interface in Google Chrome when task is run.

  debug: {
    options: {
      open: false // do not open node-inspector in Chrome automatically
    }
  },
});
