Autoprefixer vs gulp: What are the differences?

What is Autoprefixer? PostCSS plugin to parse CSS and add vendor prefixes to CSS rules. It is a CSS post processor. It combs through compiled CSS files to add or remove vendor prefixes like -webkit and -moz after checking the code.

What is gulp? The streaming build system. Build system automating tasks: minification and copying of all JavaScript files, static images. More capable of watching files to automatically rerun the task when a file changes.

Autoprefixer can be classified as a tool in the "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions" category, while gulp is grouped under "JS Build Tools / JS Task Runners".

gulp is an open source tool with 31.3K GitHub stars and 4.41K GitHub forks. Here's a link to gulp's open source repository on GitHub.

Typeform, PedidosYa, and Myntra are some of the popular companies that use gulp, whereas Autoprefixer is used by Startae, Brigade, and Clippings. gulp has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1163 company stacks & 706 developers stacks; compared to Autoprefixer, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

          What are some alternatives to Autoprefixer and gulp?
          Sass
          Sass is an extension of CSS3, adding nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more. It's translated to well-formatted, standard CSS using the command line tool or a web-framework plugin.
          Animate.css
          It is a bunch of cool, fun, and cross-browser animations for you to use in your projects. Great for emphasis, home pages, sliders, and general just-add-water-awesomeness.
          Less
          Less is a CSS pre-processor, meaning that it extends the CSS language, adding features that allow variables, mixins, functions and many other techniques that allow you to make CSS that is more maintainable, themable and extendable.
          PostCSS
          PostCSS is a tool for transforming CSS with JS plugins. These plugins can support variables and mixins, transpile future CSS syntax, inline images, and more.
          Stylus
          Stylus is a revolutionary new language, providing an efficient, dynamic, and expressive way to generate CSS. Supporting both an indented syntax and regular CSS style.

          Review ofgulpgulp

          Gulp is a new build system which shows a lot of promise. The use of streams and code-over-configuration makes for a simpler and more intuitive build. There isn't much boilerplate code so you're able to roll your own asset pipeline. Even if you don't know node.js streams, gulp is pretty readable and easier to understand.

          PS: It's worth saying if you know Grunt then you can learn Gulp in a day.

          Gulp is used as the build system for Cloudcraft.co with a lot of custom targets: vendoring dependencies, transpiling ES2015 to Ecmascript5 (with Babel), incremental compilation of multiple watched modules, minification, creation of app distribution packages etc. Having previously used Grunt, I've come to greatly prefer Gulp due to the ability to easily write my own tasks using plain JS without necessarily relying on plugins for everything.

          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.

          For all our frontend site builds, Grunt allows us to do one-click builds for SASS, Coffeescript and other tools, with minifying and general restructuring built right in.

          gulp is a fancy alternative to grunt (that we don't use anymore). Just use async/await instead of "stream" everything (which is a nonsens). We don't use gulp.

          If a project has a more complex build, gulp allows us to build a flexible build pipeline and automatically rebuild on files changes. Speeds up JS development.
