Gulp-Based Build System

js-standard-style GitHub issues GitHub license

This project uses Gulp to build NodeJS based apps.


The basic tenet of this project is to provide a life-cycle base build system to automate NodeJS application(s). The life-cycle provide points we can attach tasks to. This provides the ability to provide an extensible base of tasks to build any application.


There are in fact multiple life-cycles, Clean and Default.

Name Description
pre-clean execute processes needed prior to the actual project cleaning
clean remove all files generated by the previous build
post-clean execute processes needed to finalize the project cleaning

Default Lifecycle

Name Description
validate validate the project is correct and all necessary information is available.
initialize initialize build state, e.g. set properties or create directories.
resources generate resources for inclusion in the package.
compile compile the source code of the project.
test-compile compile the test source code into the test destination directory
test run tests using a suitable unit testing framework. These tests should not require the code be packaged or deployed.
package take the compiled code and package it in its distributable format, such as a JAR.
deploy done in an integration or release environment, copies the final package to the remote repository for sharing with other developers and projects.
