npm install gulp-add-src --save-dev

Works like gulp.src, but you can put it anywhere in your pipeline and it will append the given files to the pipeline.

Example:

var gulp = require('gulp');
var addsrc = require('gulp-add-src');
var coffee = require('gulp-coffee');
var uglify = require('gulp-uglify');
 
gulp.task('build', function () {
  return gulp.src('files/coffee/*.coffee')   // start with the .coffee files in the project 
    .pipe(coffee())                          // compiles coffee script 
    .pipe(addsrc('files/js/*.js'))           // we use addsrc to add our .js files to the mix 
    .pipe(uglify())                          // we minify everything 
    .pipe(gulp.dest('dist'));                // and write to dist 
});

The order of files when the streams are merged is not guaranteed. If you need to preserve order and specifically append/prepend files, you can use addsrc.append and addsrc.prepend, respectively, in place of just addsrc in the example above.

As an example, this would be useful if you wanted to merge your bower scripts with your app scripts. You'd need your bower scripts to maintain their order (the bower scripts themselves) and make sure they come before your app scripts. In this case, you'd use addsrc.prepend.

Because of the unpredicabilty of addsrc alone, it's recommended to use one of the append/prepend variants. The original is only left in place for legacy reasons.
