Getting Started with Gulp

gulp.js is a fantastic way of removing some of the more mundane parts of a web designer or developer’s job. It takes away all the tasks you should be doing and probably some of the ones that you’re not but should be!

For example tasks like:

  • compiling your CSS, LESS or SASS down to minified versions with vendor specific prefixes
  • minifying, obfuscating and even uglifying your CoffeeScript or JavaScript files down to production versions
  • push to your browser so you can see the changes without reloading the page
  • automatically run PHPUnit (for example) against any code changes
  • and watch for anything above changing and do it all again!
