DocPad and Grunt
I really like DocPad static site generator but sometimes I think DocPad tries to do a little too much of everything. It generates static sites like a boss but it also scaffolds, downloads, serves, and watches. With great tools like yeoman, bower, and grunt I think docpad should focus on what it is good at... static site generating.
Without additional comments I'll share a grunt task that uses docpad to generate a static site and grunt-contrib-connect and grunt-contrib-watch instead of docpad's server and watcher.
