A gruntfile generator for use with the Sails command-line interface.


Certain generators are installed by default in Sails, but they can be overridden. Check the Sails docs for information on installing generator overrides / custom generators.

Production Usage

On the command line
$ sails generate gruntfile
In a node script
var path = require('path');
var sailsgen = require('sails-generate');
var scope = {
    rootPath: path.resolve(__dirname)
sailsgen(require('sails-generate-gruntfile'), scope, function (err) {
    if (err) throw err;

    // It worked.


To get started quickly and see this generator in action, run the bin/index.js script:

$ git clone YOUR_FORK_OF_THIS_REPO sails-generate-gruntfile-fork
$ cd sails-generate-gruntfile-fork
$ npm install
$ node ./bin

bin/index.js is a simple script, bundled only for convenience, that runs the generator with hard-coded scope variables. Please feel free to modify that file however you like! Also see for more information on overriding/enhancing generators.
