Working with grunt errors on .NET Core Projects

Grunt is a task-based command line build tool for JavaScript projects.Here’s the idea: when working on a JavaScript project, there are a bunch of things you’ll want to do regularly. Like concatenating given files, running JSHint on your code, running tests, or minifying your scripts etc.

In this post i am gonna show you how to eliminate the grunt error for .NET Core project.

Below is the error that i found upon compilation!

Error- “No executable found matching command grunt”


Solution: Open the package manager console and install “npm install -g grunt-cli” packages.

This installs Grunt’s command line interface (CLI) globally.This will put the grunt command in your system path, allowing it to be run from any directory.

Note that installing grunt-cli does not install the Grunt task runner. The job of the Grunt CLI is simple: run the version of Grunt which has been installed next to a Gruntfile. This allows multiple versions of Grunt to be installed on the same machine simultaneously.

Upon installing you should see something like this-


Clean the solution and rebuild it and voila!
