Brunch Task Runner extension
Adds support for the Brunch build tool in Visual Studio 2015's Task Runner Explorer.
In order to use this extension, you must have Brunch installed globally or locally in your project.
Use npm to install it globally by typing the following in a command line:
npm install brunch -g
The Brunch Task Runner automatically triggers when it finds Brunch configuration files. These file names are supported:
Any config file will have a Brunch logo watermark at the bottom right corner of the editor window.
You can toggle the visibility of the watermark by clicking on it.
Task Runner Explorer
Open Task Runner Explorer by right-clicking the Brunch configuration file and select Task Runner Explorer from the context menu:
Task Runner Explorer will show both build and watch tasks as well as any override files present in the working directory.
In this case, there are two override files:
Each task can be executed by double-clicking the task.
By clicking the Debug icon on the left menu bar, the --debug switch is being enabled for all Brunch tasks.
The Debug menu icon is a toggle button that can be left on or off for as long as needed.
Task bindings make it possible to associate individual tasks with Visual Studio events such as Project Open etc.
You can easily add a new brunch-config.coffee file to your project from the Add New Item dialog.
Just search for "brunch".
