Gulp is a tool to automate repetitive tasks in everyday routine of a serious frontend developer so we can focus on more important thing like our work itself.

Gulp can help you with

— Translating Sass to CSS (using node-sass)
— Check if the coding style is right (linting)
— Optimize and compress CSS (compressed output style)
— Optimize and reduce the size of images (imagemin)
— Optimize and reduce JavaScript (uglify)
— Reload all devices with new HTML/CSS/JS/PHP (yes, plural, browser-sync)
— Output different versions of the same files (production and dev)
— To gather and convert fonts for web
— ...to repeat all mentioned as needed.
