Stop grunting, become a lineman

Lately I've been trying out various dev work flow -- an integrated testing / building setup using grunt for rich client side applications (we wanted bit more than our own hand written grunt files)

We are trying lineman for a new project now. lineman uses testem instead of karma and so far our experience has been good, jasmine tests are run automaticly when files change and results shown instantly on console as well as testem chrome runner (a big pluss).

lineman also has an API proxy feature where it can act as a proxy to your real back end server for specified URL prefix.

lineman's minimalistic approach compared to yeoman's generate everything approach might help lineman to become a standard tool in our toolbox.
