Grunt structure help

Hello all,

I am trying to get some of my projects set up using Grunt, switching from Codekit, but I have a few questions on if and how I would set up a certain structure.

I want to have a project folder with a dev, prod, and build folder.

  • My biggest question is, can all of the npm_modules and etc. go in the build folder and then point to the dev and prod folders?

  • For anyone using LESS, how do I set up to process my files and generate a sourcemap?

Thanks everyone
