Visual Studio 2015 integrates with two new package managers: Bower and NPM (Node Packaged Modules). Developers can now use modern web tools such as Grunt and Gulp to execute tasks like bunding, minification, script compilation (including LESS, Sass, CoffeeScript, and Typescript) and a lot more. This video shows how to interact with Bower and NPM, and shows how to use Grunt to run client tasks in the new Task Runner Explorer.
