I can't get Grunt working on Magento 2. I'm going through the devdocs and have run the following commands to set up grunt:
$ sudo npm install -g grunt-cli /usr/bin/grunt -> /usr/lib/node_modules/grunt-cli/bin/grunt /usr/lib └── email@example.com $ sudo npm install $ sudo npm update $ grunt watch Running "watch" task Waiting... ^C Execution Time (2017-03-20 17:24:18 UTC-0) Total 2m 47.1s $ grunt clean:nova Running "clean:nova" (clean) task >> 0 paths cleaned.

grunt watch does nothing, it just says
waiting.... And while
grunt clean seems to work, I'm not sure how I can verify this.
Of course I edited on of my theme's
I have magento2 running in a vagrant box on my OSX host. I've tried running grunt on both the vagrant box & OSX host without success on either.
However, the server side
less compilation is working, it was before I tried to try
grunt. I can see my
less changes take effect once I clear the cache with:
php bin/magento cache:clean; php bin/magento cache:flush; rm -rf pub/static/frontend/Monsoon/nova/en_IE/ ; rm -rf var/view_pre
I'm not sure what the advantage is with using grunt in my workflow if the server compiles the
less files. Just trying to get a grip of Magento2.
