Eclipse vs gulp: What are the differences?

What is Eclipse? IDE for Java EE Developers. Standard Eclipse package suited for Java and plug-in development plus adding new plugins; already includes Git, Marketplace Client, source code and developer documentation Click here to file a bug against Eclipse Platform..

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.

Eclipse belongs to "Integrated Development Environment" category of the tech stack, while gulp can be primarily classified under "JS Build Tools / JS Task Runners".

"Does it all", "Integrates with most of tools" and "Easy to use" are the key factors why developers consider Eclipse; whereas "Build speed", "Readable" and "Code-over-configuration" are the primary reasons why gulp is favored.

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 Eclipse is used by Intuit, Zalando, and PedidosYa. gulp has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1163 company stacks & 705 developers stacks; compared to Eclipse, which is listed in 248 company stacks and 140 developer stacks.

    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.

    How developers use Eclipse and gulp
    Avatar of Cloudcraft
    Cloudcraft uses gulpgulp

    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.

    Develop and debug Java code using standard Eclipse distribution. No special plugins; standard Maven and Git integration.
