Node.js Question

Task connect not found grunt

I am creating a local server using grunt. But when I am running grunt command it is not able to find connect task. Could any one please help on this.

Note: I have searched over stackoverflow and google.

Grunt JS File

module.exports = function(grunt) {
grunt.initConfig({

pkg: grunt.file.readJSON,

clean: ["lib/tictactoe/build"],

connect:{
all:{
options:{
port:9000,
hostname:'localhost'
}
}
}


})


grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-contrib-clean','grunt-contrib-connect');
grunt.registerTask('default', ['clean','connect']);
}

Answer

You need to make separate calls to loadNpmTasks:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-contrib-clean');
grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-contrib-connect');

You can only load one plugin at a time with loadNpmTasks.
