What is gulp?
Who uses gulp?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose gulp in their tech stack.
gulp is used to package our plugins for the WSC (Woltlab Suite Core) in a fast, convenient and code-driven way. We enjoy the comfort it offers with stuff like the gzip-plugin or tar-packing.
Scenario: I want to integrate Prettier in our code base which is currently using ESLint (for .js and .scss both). The project is using gulp.
It doesn't feel quite right to me to use ESLint, I wonder if it would be better to use Stylelint or Sass Lint instead.
I completed integrating ESLint + Prettier, Planning to do the same with [ Stylelint || Sasslint || EsLint] + Prettier.
And have gulp 'fix' on file save (Watcher).
Any recommendation is appreciated.
- By preferring code over configuration, gulp keeps simple things simple and makes complex tasks manageable.
- By harnessing the power of node's streams you get fast builds that don't write intermediary files to disk.
- gulp's strict plugin guidelines assure plugins stay simple and work the way you expect.
- With a minimal API surface, you can pick up gulp in no time. Your build works just like you envision it: a series of streaming pipes.
