Getting Started

This plugin requires Gulp ~3.9.9

If you haven't used Gulp before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gulp file as well as install and use Gulp plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install gulp-speckjs --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your gulpfile with this line of JavaScript:

var speck = require('gulp-speckjs');

The "speck" task

Usage Examples

gulp.task('speck:tape', function() {
  return gulp.src('./test/fixtures/*.js')
    .pipe(foreach(function(stream, file) {
      return stream
          testFW: 'tape',
          logs: true,
          relPath: '../specs/' + path.basename(file.path)
          suffix : '_tapeSpec'


  • testFW: the test suite for which SpeckJS will build
  • relPath: the relative path that will be used inside each spec file
  • logs: output on console success/error messages

In the above example the gulp-speckjs plugin is used alongside gulp-foreach and gulp-rename for a complete control over the build pipeline. See gulp-speckjs's gulpfile.js for more examples.


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Gulp.
