A plugin for #gruntjs to run #jasmine specs: grunt-jasmine-task


This plugin is deprecated and replaced by grunt-contrib-jasmine

I wrote a plugin to run jasmine specs with grunt.
It should be stable and is available through npm.


Install this grunt plugin next to your project’s grunt.js gruntfile with:

npm install grunt-jasmine-task

Note: it’s best to install it as a local node module, not global.

Then add this to your project’s grunt.js gruntfile, inside the grunt.initConfig object:

    jasmine: {
      index: ['specs/index.html']

replace specs/index.html obviously with the location of your jasmine spec running html file.

and at the bottom of your grunt.js gruntfile add:


now you can run the jasmine task with:

grunt jasmine


Source can be found in the grunt-jasmine-task github project


Issues can be posted in the issue queue, all other feedback is welcome here in the comments, or on twitter: @camillereynders

  1. In other places I saw you need to have installed PhantomJS to make jasmine task in grunt, that’s needed? or can I use jasmine without PhantomKs
