An example for how to use and express using grunt-express. The example will:

  • reload the browser (when opened) using grunt-contrib-livereload and grunt-regarde
  • restart the server using the built-in feature of grunt-express, and it will do so when any of the server script is changed, or when you 'touch' the .server file in project root (using a grunt-regarde watcher setup, see Gruntfile.js)

Getting Started

  1. git clone git://
  2. npm install
  3. grunt

To observe the server restart automatically when server script is changed, update ./app/server.js line #15 - 18 changes to following, for example

app.get('/hello', function(req, res){
    // res.send('hello!');

To observe the browser refresh, first load http://localhost:9000/hello, then change the <body> tag of app/templates/hello.dust to following, save the change and you should see browser automatically re-fresh.
