I followed this tutorial on installing Grunt on Magento 2. I am running Magento 2.0.7, hosted with one-click app from digitalocean. I only have 'root' user (heard that may cause some problems).

After installing Grunt, the grunt:clean, grunt:exec commands work, but it gives error when trying to grunt:less. Error is:

Loading Gruntfile.js tasks...ERROR

Error: Cannot find module './jit-grunt' Warning: Task "less:raultheme" not found. Use --force to continue.

And after using grunt:exec I cant enter my page anymore, not even backend. It throws this error:

exception 'Magento\Framework\Exception\LocalizedException' with message 'Can't create directory /var/www/html/magento/var/generation/Magento/Framework/App/Response/Http/.' in /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/Code/Generator.php:103 Stack trace: #0 /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/Code/Generator/Autoloader.php(35): Magento\Framework\Code\Generator->generateClass('Magento\Framewo...') #1 [internal function]: Magento\Framework\Code\Generator\Autoloader->load('Magento\Framewo...') #2 [internal function]: spl_autoload_call('Magento\Framewo...') #3 /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/Code/Reader/ClassReader.php(19): ReflectionClass->__construct('Magento\Framewo...') #4 /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/ObjectManager/Definition/Runtime.php(44): Magento\Framework\Code\Reader\ClassReader->getConstructor('Magento\Framewo...') #5 /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/ObjectManager/Factory/Dynamic/Developer.php(71): Magento\Framework\ObjectManager\Definition\Runtime->getParameters('Magento\Framewo...') #6 /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/ObjectManager/ObjectManager.php(71): Magento\Framework\ObjectManager\Factory\Dynamic\Developer->create('Magento\Framewo...') #7 /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/ObjectManager/Factory/AbstractFactory.php(236): Magento\Framework\ObjectManager\ObjectManager->get('Magento\Framewo...') #8 /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/ObjectManager/Factory/Dynamic/Developer.php(53): Magento\Framework\ObjectManager\Factory\AbstractFactory->resolveArgument(Array, 'Magento\Framewo...', NULL, 'response', 'Magento\Framewo...') #9 /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/ObjectManager/Factory/Dynamic/Developer.php(82): Magento\Framework\ObjectManager\Factory\Dynamic\Developer->_resolveArguments('Magento\Framewo...', Array, Array) #10 /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/ObjectManager/ObjectManager.php(57): Magento\Framework\ObjectManager\Factory\Dynamic\Developer->create('Magento\Framewo...', Array) #11 /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/framework/App/Bootstrap.php(233): Magento\Framework\ObjectManager\ObjectManager->create('Magento\Framewo...', Array) #12 /var/www/html/magento/index.php(38): Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap->createApplication('Magento\Framewo...') #13 {main}

Magento is on developer mode. I have no clue anymore what might be wrong...

Neither documentation nor the tutorial you're following mentions that you need to rename package.json.sample and Gruntfile.js.sample to package.json and Gruntfile.js respectively. Rename these two files and run npm install and npm update.

Make sure you have grunt installed globally as stated in the documentation/tutorial. Don't forget to remove your previously installed package.json and node_modules.

Please read the documentation: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/frontend-dev-guide/css-topics/css_debug.html

grunt exec:theme NOT grunt:exec
