Grunt Harp

If you’re already using tools like Grunt, you can still get the benefit of Harp’s zero-configuration preprocessing. Salehen Rahman has put together a Grunt task you can use to serve or compile your project with Harp.

Harp Powered

Ross Howard-Jones, creator of the Baseline boilerplate for Harp, wrote a post about migrating a blog to Harp and hosting it on the Harp Platform. If you’re looking to add to your static blog from your mobile device, his workflow might be particularly interesting to you.

Harp apps on Nginx

Harp is a static web server, but by running harp compile, you can flatten your preprocessed code into HTML, CSS & JavaScript and run it on another server. Coder’s Grid put together a guide on doing exactly that: create a Harp application and deploy it to an Nginx server.
