grunt-contrib-validate-xml lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:

require("grunt/package.json"); // grunt is a peer dependency. // require("grunt-contrib-validate-xml/[??]")
