  1. I noticed that before grunt release you must also run
npm i shifter
  1. Is there any way to automatically (thru args) setup BASE url in the build?

  2. I have run grunt release and got an error:

Running "npm-copy" task
Copying to build dir: /usr/local/www/static/vendor/yui3/build-npm
**Fatal error: Path must be a string. Received undefined**

Did the instructions change since 2013?

My purpose is to build YUI manually for my own CDN over HTTPS.

Here is the tutorial that seems to be broken:


It's probably cause of changes in node since those libraries were created. You have two options, try to fix those errors locally to get it to work. Or just down grade to node 0.10 and try running it again.


ok, thanks!
