Grunt is one of the best-known and most popular task runners in the web developer’s toolkit. Now that this project has joined the jQuery Foundation, we’re looking to get the project rolling again. Ben Alman, the creator of Grunt, is looking for contributors who can take over the reigns. The team could use some help with triaging a stack of issues and pull requests, then getting a new release out the door.
This is a great opportunity for you to get involved in open source. If you’ve used Grunt in your projects, this is also a chance to give back and help the web development community.
Interested? Post in this Grunt issue.
Today, we’re happy to announce a new release of PEP: Version 0.4.0. Notable changes include better support for module bundlers such as webpack and browserify and the inclusion of a WIP build on the CDN. The WIP build can be found at http://code.jquery.com/pep/pep-git.js but should only be used for testing (please don’t deploy the WIP build to a production site).
For full details on what’s included in this release, see the changelog.
To get started with PEP, you can get the files from npm, bower (pepjs), the jQuery CDN, or the GitHub release. Check out the samples or view the project README for more details. If you run into any issues using PEP, please file an issue or join us on IRC in #pep on freenode.
Thanks to all who helped with this release, specifically: Anders D. Johnson, Colin Snover, John-David Dalton, Jörn Zaefferer, Mike Mariano, Scott González, Stefan Neubert, Stuart P. Bentley, Will Binns-Smith.
