Grunt Proxy setup for Yeoman 1.2

Purpose

I was wanting to keep my front end project separate from my backend.  This meant that the back end was on a different port than the yeoman server.  This causes cross site scripting issues with the yeoman server.  I figured out the only way around this was via a proxy.

I found this article from Mike Partridge from Jan 2014 which was a good starting point but the yeoman build has changed so this is no longer working.

http://www.hierax.org/2014/01/grunt-proxy-setup-for-yeoman.html

Tools used

  • grunt-cli v0.1.13

  • grunt v0.4.5

  • yeoman 1.2.0

  • grunt-connect-proxy 0.1.10

  • angular-generator 0.9.1

Change to instructions

The only change to the directions in the post from hierax is the following.   I just changed the things that are pushed into middleware.  Live reload no longer has a base [ ] block.

Step 3 should now look like:

livereload: {
 options: {
 open: true,
 middleware: function (connect) {
   // Setup the proxy
   var middlewares = [require('grunt-connect-proxy/lib/utils').proxyRequest];

   middlewares.push(connect.static('.tmp'));

   middlewares.push(connect().use(
     '/bower_components',
     connect.static('./bower_components')
   ));
   middlewares.push(connect.static(appConfig.app));

   return middlewares;
 }
 }
 },
