Gulp Eagle

npm npm license


Gulp Eagle is based on Laravel Elixir, which provides a clean, fluent API for defining basic Gulp tasks. I'm sure you'll love it, if you've ever experienced the trouble of defining the gulp task repeatedly.


npm install --save-dev gulp-eagle


var Eagle = require('gulp-eagle')

Eagle(function (mix) {
        .sass('./src/**/*.scss', 'css')
        .script('./src/**/*.js, 'js')


  • gulp: run all tasks.
  • gulp watch: run all tasks and watching assets for changes.
  • gulp --prod: run all tasks and minify all CSS, JavaScript and image files.


sass(src, [output])

The sass method allows you to compile Sass into CSS.

mix.sass('./src/**/*.scss', 'css')

You may also combine multiple Sass files into a single CSS file by specifying a specific file name.

mix.sass('./src/**/*.scss', 'css/app.css')

], 'css/app.css')

By default, Gulp will rewrite and optimize any url() calls within your stylesheets. Imagine that we want to compile Sass that includes a relative URL to an image:

body {
    background: url('../image/img01.jpeg')

Gulp Eagle will find img01.jpeg, copy it to your dist/assets folder, and then rewrite the url() within your generated stylesheet:

body {
  background: url('/assets/img01.jpeg?v=592f09d1fd605e1c089031cabe6eced6')

If you don't need it, you may disable url() rewriting like so:

var Eagle = require('gulp-eagle')

Eagle.config.css.processCssUrls.enabled = false

less(src, [output])

The less method allows you to compile Less into CSS. The usage like the above sass method.

style(src, [output])

If you would just like to process some plain CSS stylesheets, you may use the style method. The usage like the above sass method.

script(src, [output])

The script method allows you to process JavaScript files, which provides automatic source maps, concatenation, and minification.

mix.script('./src/js/*.js', 'js')

If you have multiple JavaScript files that you would like to combine into a single file, you can specify a specific file name.

mix.script('./src/js/*.js', 'js/app.js')

], 'js/app.js')

babel(src, [output])

The babel method allows you to compile ES6 into ES5. And has the function of the above script method.

mix.babel('./src/js/*.js', 'js')

mix.babel('./src/js/*.js', 'js/app.js')

image(src, [output])

The image method may be used to copy Image files and directories to new locations. And turn on Image compression in production mode automatically.

mix.image('./src/images/**', 'images')

html(src, [output])

The html method will copy html files to new locations.


You can also turn on HTML compression in production mode:

var Eagle = require('gulp-eagle')

Eagle.config.html.compress.enabled = true

copy(src, [output])

The copy method may be used to copy files and directories to new locations

mix.copy('./src/assets/fonts/**', 'assets/fonts')


The version method accepts a path(default: config.versionFolder: 'build') relative to the output directory(default: config.buildPath: 'dist'). Execute only in production mode.



The browserSync method will automatically refresh your web browser after you make changes to your assets. Which accepts a JavaScript object, See the BrowserSync docs for options. Then, once you run gulp watch you may access your web application using port 3000 (http://localhost:3000) to enjoy browser syncing.


You can set the directory parameter to true, If you want to scan the directory structure.

  server: {
    directory: true

rollup(src, [output], [options])

The rollup method supports packaging modules by using RollupJS. And the src parameter must be a single file.

mix.rollup('./test-app/rollup/index.js', 'app.js')

You can set the RollupJS configuration with the options parameter, and you can also customize the configuration by rollup.config.js in the project root directory.



  • Added rollup(src, [output], [options]) method.


  • Added mix.browserSync(options), mix.version(), mix.babel(src, [output]) methods.
  • Removed mix.browserify(), mix.clean(), mix.*In() methods.
