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.

A toolkit to automate & enhance your workflow

Leverage gulp and the flexibility of JavaScript to automate slow, repetitive workflows and compose them into efficient build pipelines.


Using code over configuration, utilize all of JavaScript to create your gulpfile—where tasks can be written using your own code or chained single purpose plugins.


Write individual, focused tasks and compose them into larger operations, providing you with speed and accuracy while reducing repetition.


By using gulp streams, you can apply many transformations to your files while in memory before anything is written to the disk—significantly speeding up your build process.

Connecting plugins

Using community-built plugins is a quick way to get started with gulp. Each plugin does a small amount of work, so you can connect them like building blocks. Chain together plugins from a variety of technologies to reach your desired result.
