yo reveal
grunt build

http://localhost:9000 hangs.

All assets return normally (eg: http://localhost:9000/bower_components/reveal.js/css/theme/default.css) but no .html pages respond.

I can't reproduce. Are you using the last NPM version?

npm cache clean
npm install -g generator-reveal

Remake project, still hangs. I guess the problem may be on my side. Thanks for checking it out. I'll close until I have more information.

i got a similar problem but with the livereload.

grunt server opens the tab, but then the shell says "waiting..." nothing responses.

I am running the latest version (0.0.5). On OSX 10.8
Or did I something wrong?

grunt build just works fine.

I did reproduce this on a machine where bower didn't have permissions to install components. bower_components folder is not created and grunt server hangs on start. I'll reopen this and keep investigating.


In my case bower creates the folder and installs reveal, jquery and handlebars.

Just as I said, the build-process works fine, just the livereload seems not working.

Thanks for investigating :)

Until they sort out the problem with live-reload, anyone having this problem can just comment out line 42 of the Grunfile.js.

middleware: function (connect) {
  return [
    mountFolder(connect, '.')

thanks, this works for me :)

@slara Removes livereload hang note. Close #5
As we are using grunt-contrib-watch livereload, issue #5 can't be reproduced. Thanks to @janraasch
