             Summary: Introduce Grunt
                 Key: RAVE-1101
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RAVE-1101
             Project: Rave
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: build & development, rave-portal
            Reporter: Jmeas Pls

Grunt can do lots of things for us, and I think we would benefit quite a bit if we were to
switch to it.

A handful of things it could do for us:

1. Providing a layer of abstraction between the user's machine and the Vagrant box. This would
let us run Grunt commands to perform actions on the Vagrantbox, like running cargo to get
the webserver running.

2. If separating the Java backend from the frontend is a goal we're pursuing, then Grunt is
a great first step toward reaching that goal. From what I've gathered Maven is currently used
to build the files, set up a watch environment, and run tests. Grunt can do this for us without
a dependency on Java.

3. I've been told Maven is slow at the build process. We might see a speed bump by switching
to Grunt.

[~mfranklin] and [~geerzo] agreed that this is an idea they'd like to see implemented.
