npm install grunt-cordovacli --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-cordovacli');

The "cordovacli" task

Run this task with the grunt cordovacli command.

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named cordovacli to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().
