Start proxy server using http-proxy.

Getting Started

If you haven't used grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide.
From the same directory as your project's Gruntfile
Getting Started and package.json, install this plugin with the following command:
npm install grunt-proxy --save-dev

Once that's done, add this line to your project's Gruntfile:

If the plugin has been installed correctly, running grunt --help at the command line should list the newly-installed plugin's task or tasks. In addition, the plugin should be listed in package.json as a devDependency, which ensures that it will be installed whenever the npm install command is run.

The "proxy" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named proxy to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().
  proxy: {
    proxy1 : {
    	options : {
    		port : 8050,                 // start proxy server, listening to the port 8050
			target : {                   // make it forward all the requests to localhost:8011
				host: 'localhost',
				port: 8011
    proxy2 : {
    	options : {
    		port	: 8051,               // start proxy server, listening to the port 8050
			router : {                    // make it forward requests according to this table
				'localhost/host1' : 'localhost:8011',
				'localhost/host2' : 'localhost:8012'



Type: Integer Default value: none
A port number to which the proxy server should listen

Type: Object Default value: none
An object with properties host and port. If this option is given then all the requests to the proxy server will be proxied to the specified target.


Type: Object Default value: none
Proxy table, which is a simple lookup table that maps incoming requests to proxy target locations. If is also given the proxy table is totally ignored (this behaviour will be changed in the future).
