This is where Gulp comes into play. With Gulp you have the ability to automated repeated tasks. Hence each time the task is performed it’s the exact same as last time.
We use Gulp tasks for a number of processes such as optimizing images, transpiling code, code quality checks, and even generating code documentation. By creating these tasks we are able to have multiple developers (as well as automated build process) do these tasks in the same way, in the same order, every time.
Gulp used to be the standard but has somewhat fallen to the wayside in favor of directly accessing packages within Node instead of having Gulp wrap around a package. At TRYTN we don’t see the need at this time to change away from Gulp as it integrates well into our other systems. It’s a key piece of our automated build and deployment pipeline.
