frontend generator for use with the Sails command-line interface that works with gulp and sails lift. This generator creates client side assets and files with grunt configurations and tasks that manage the front end assets for a sails project. To see more infomation about how it works look here.
Certain generators are installed by default in Sails, but they can be overridden. Check the Sails docs for information on installing generator overrides / custom generators.
$ npm install -g sails-generate-backend-gulp$ npm install -g sails-generate-gulpfile$ npm install -g sails-generate-frontend-gulp$ npm install -g sails-generate-new-gulp

** It is important to note that css files will automatically be minified and autoprefixed for last two versions of Safari 5, IE 10, opera 12.1, ios 6 and android 4. The js files will automatically be concatenated to main.min.js. When adding files to assets folder while system is live, please make sure to add files one at a time (for now) and wait for the task to finish before adding the next file or else not all of the tasks will run on the files.
