#47380 closed task (blessed) (fixed)

Remove the dependency on globally installed Grunt

There's no need for Grunt to be installed globally in order to run the build tasks because package.json already includes "grunt": "grunt" in its scripts property, which means npm run grunt [task] can be called and the local Grunt binary will be used.

I've updated all those handbook pages to use the npm run grunt ... syntax as the commands can all be run without a globally installed Grunt.

Build/Test Tools: Remove the dependency on a globally installed Grunt.

The existing "grunt": "grunt" script in package.json allows for the use of npm run grunt ... which uses the local grunt binary in the project's node_modules.
