    Gulpit is an easy and fast configurable task library built around Gulp useable with a CLI. You just have to configure the 'gulpit-conf.js' file (< 2min). You will find a sample below.

    How do I get set up?

    • Install the package with NPM: npm install --global gulpit
    • Create a 'gulpit-conf.js' file in the root of your project
    • cd where the 'gulpit-conf.js' is then run: gulpit

    How do I use the CLI?

    You have two main command when you are in the gulpit app:

    • Build: will build your files once
    • watch: will watch for file modifications then build after each new save
    • help: List the command available with descriptions

    You have extra options like:

    • build --css: will only build css
    • build --prod: will build with the prod profile*

    You can combine: build --js --prod: will only build js with the prod profile*

    *Prod profile: will override the default options.

    Which tools can I use?

    For Javascript:

    • Browserify
    • Uglify (you can use both Browserify and Uglify)
    • Sourcemaps

    For CSS:

    • Sass
    • Less
    • Sourcemaps
    • Autoprefixer

    Sample 'gulpit-conf.js'

    Here is an example of a specific config if you use browserify (with sourcemaps) and sass (with sourcemaps and autoprefixer):

    module.exports = {
        projectName: 'test-project',
        profiles: {
            default: {
                js: {
                    sourceFolder: 'dev/js/browserify/index.js',
                    exitFolder: 'build/js/',
                    exitFileName: 'app.js',
                    tasks: {
                        browserify: { activate: true },
                        sourcemaps: { activate: true }
                css: {
                    sourceFolder: 'dev/css/sass/index.scss',
                    exitFolder: 'build/css/',
                    exitFileName: 'style.css',
                    tasks: {
                        sass: {
                            activate: true,
                            options: {
                                outputStyle: 'nested'
                        autoprefixer: {
                            activate: true,
                            options: {
                                browsers: ['last 2 versions']
                        sourcemaps: { activate: true }
            // Optional prod profile to disable sourcemaps
            // when you use '--prod' argument in the CLI
            prod: {
                js: { sourcemaps: { activate: false } },
                css: { sourcemaps: { activate: false } }

    You can find the complete sample conf with all the tasks available in the test folder of this repo.

    Extra info

    • The different options for sass.options.outputStyle are: nested, expanded, compact, compressed

    • If you use both Browserify and Uglify, the uglify.options.concat options will be ignored as browserify already concat all the files

    • File will be renamed after build only if you indicate a specific file for sourceFolder

    • You can the use prod profile by setting your NODE_ENV to "prod" instead of using the --prod option.
