What is gulp?

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.

What is Grunt?

The less work you have to do when performing repetitive tasks like minification, compilation, unit testing, linting, etc, the easier your job becomes. After you've configured it, a task runner can do most of that mundane work for you—and your team—with basically zero effort.

What is Fly.js?

Fly is a modern build system for Node based in co-routines, generators and promises. Fly has robust error handling, callback heaven, cascading tasks, parallel execution and a simple API. See the documentation to learn more about how to use Fly and write your own plugins.
