Grunt and Bower in Visual Studio

I work with a lot of front-end folks who are happy with their OSX tools. I tend to stick to OSX when doing front-end work as well. But as I spend most of my time in Visual Studio, I thought it fantastic that support for non-Microsoft frameworks are continuing to make their way into the IDE.

Favorite quote from Hanselman’s post:

“Some of you may ask, why not use NuGet for JavaScript? Why not extend MSBuild for building CSS/JS? Simple. Because there’s already a rich ecosystem for this kind of thing.”

I love having watched the climate/culture shift in Microsoft dev teams these last several years towards OSS and healthier integrations with and inclusion of other tools/tech.
