FIXED: Grunt Dploy Not Pushing Files

Getting-started-with-GruntI was trying to set up Grunt to deploy to my development server.

According to the output in the terminal all went well. However no files were being uploaded.

$>grunt
Running "dploy:stage" (dploy) task
Connecting to ftp.my-dev-server.com...
Checking revisions...
Uploading files...
[ + ] File uploaded: /Users/MyUser/Sites/my-site-folder/dev/.rev:
Upload completed for ftp.my-dev-server.com
All Completed :)  

Take note of where it says:
Uploading files...
[ + ] File uploaded: /Users/MyUser/Sites/my-site-folder/dev/.rev:

When setting up the info in my grunt.js file, I had used the full path as output by the “pwd” command like this:

   dploy: {                                     
        stage: {                             
            host: "ftp3.ftptoyoursite.com",     
            user: "user-name",               
            pass: "password here", 
            scheme: "sftp",
            port: "22",   
            path: {
                local: "/Users/MyUser/Sites/my-site-folder/dev/", <-- full path is WRONG        
                remote: "/dev.okonlabs.com/web/content"
            }
        }
    

}
According to the feedback in the terminal (shown above) it "appears" to have worked just fine. However, this is WRONG.

Actually the grunt.js file needs to have the stage: path: local: value to be the path as seen from the project root. As in, the same place as where the grunt.js file resides.

   dploy: {                                     
        stage: {                             
            host: "ftp3.ftptoyoursite.com",     
            user: "user-name",               
            pass: "password here", 
            scheme: "sftp",
            port: "22",   
            path: {
                local: "/", <-- IMPORTANT!   
                remote: "/dev.okonlabs.com/web/content"
            }
        }
    

}

I hope that will save you a few hours of scratching your head. : )
