To do this, I ran
npm install -g grunt-contrib-copy --save-dev which should save a new
devDependencies package in
package.json (but in my case for some reason it did not, why?!).
Once added there, I reran
npm install where it added it to the
node_modules folder. Then I just copied and pasted the
copy task from his Github example repository.
grunt dev to rebuild everything and voila it works!
I’d be interested to know if anyone else has a better thought about doing this. Quite more involved than I was hoping and I spent all afternoon into the evening trying to figure this all out.
