grunt.fail

For when something goes horribly wrong.

See the fail lib source for more information.

The fail API

If something explodes (or is about to explode) inside a task, it can force Grunt to abort. See the exit codes documentation for a list of all built-in Grunt exit codes.

Note that any method marked with a ☃ (unicode snowman) is also available directly on the grunt object. Just so you know. See the API main page for more usage information.

grunt.fail.warn ☃

Display a warning and abort Grunt immediately. Grunt will continue processing tasks if the --force command-line option was specified. The error argument can be a string message or an error object.

grunt.fail.warn(error [, errorcode])

If --stack is specified on the command-line and an error object was specified, a stack trace will be logged.

This method is also available as grunt.warn.

grunt.fail.fatal ☃

Display a warning and abort Grunt immediately. The error argument can be a string message or an error object.

grunt.fail.fatal(error [, errorcode])

If --stack is specified on the command-line and an error object was specified, a stack trace will be logged.

A beep is emitted on fatal unless the --no-color option is specified.

This method is also available as grunt.fatal.
