Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.2

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-litmus --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


The "litmus" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named litmus to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  litmus: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here.
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.



Type: String Default value: '' Required: yes

Litmus username


Type: String Default value: '' Required: yes

Litmus password


Type: String Default value: Required: yes

Litmus account url. yourcompany name can be found in Account Settings > Profile > Subdomain for API


Type: Array Default value: [] Required: yes

Array of email clients to test. Can be found at The <application_code> tags contain the name e.g. Gmail Chrome: <application_code> chromegmailnew </application_code>


Type: String Default value: title of email Required: no

Adds subject line to Litmus test. If not set, then defaults to <title>TITLE</title>. If title not set, then defaults to yyyy/mm/dd


Type: Number Default value: 3500 Required: no

Change the delay between tests if multiple files are being sent.

Usage Examples

  litmus: {
    test: {
      src: ['email.html'],
      options: {
        username: 'username',
        password: 'password',
        url: '',
        clients: ['gmailnew', 'ffgmailnew', 'chromegmailnew']


If you're having issues with Litmus taking forever to load a test or the title of the test is showing up as "No Subject", it is most likely an issue with the Litmus API. You can check the Litmus status page to find out if their having any issues. If that's not the case, submit an issue and we'll look into further.


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
