Node.js Question

Grunt serve "configureProxies:server" not found and "connect_proxy.js" error

I'm trying to run a http server using grunt. However, when I type

grunt serve
in the appropriate directory, I'm presented with the following errors:

Loading "connect_proxy.js" tasks...ERROR
>> TypeError: Cannot read property 'prototype' of undefined

Running "serve" task
Warning: Task "configureProxies:server" not found. Use --force to continue.

My nodejs, node package manager, and ruby installations are at the following versions:

npm -v

nodejs -v

ruby -v
ruby 1.9.3p484 (2013-11-22 revision 43786) [x86_64-linux]

How do I get the missing dependency? I've tried this both on Windows 8 and on a fresh install of elementaryOS Freya. The exact same problem arises on both. Any ideas?


The problem was resolved by going into package.json and updating "grunt-connect-proxy" to ^0.2 to obtain the missing dependency.
