jschain: grunt, unindented (#8)

A lot of node programmers like to code on the left margin. This is made possible by JavaScript’s dynamic nature. Prototypes can be built up and exports.

In Grunt the examples and virtually all code are wrapped up in one big function. Gulp doesn’t require this, and I’m under the impression many prefer this. However Grunt has a huge standard library.

I like code that doesn’t leave the left margin for long because it’s easier for me to see chunks of code. It also allows me to interleave code, which sometimes makes a lot of sense.

Using OOP, Grunt can be made to have this style. I took the Gruntfile for jquery and made it stay to the left margin while working the same way.

I won’t be sending a pull request, but I may do this on one of my own projects.
